London: Bret Michaels, lead vocalist of the glam metal band Poison, is ready to marry his girlfriend Kristi Gibson after surviving a brain haemorrhage last month.

The `Open Road` singer, who is recovering from a brain haemorrhage he suffered two weeks ago, admitted that this ordeal has made him reassess his life and he is considering tying the knot with Gibson, reported Contactmusic.

"As painful as this experience has been, I was given a second chance, right? I don`t want to sit around every night worrying this is going to happen again. What I want to do is make a positive bucket list and say, `I`m just gonna go for it`," said Micheals, who has two children - Raine, nine, and
Jorja, five, with Kristi.

"Getting married, for sure, is something I have never done. Kristi`s such a great person. We`ll see if that happens.

But yes, that may be one of the big things on the list," he added.

The couple were living together at the time of his brain haemorrhage and he credits her with getting him to the hospital and saving his life.
