For Bret Michaels, 2010 has been a year for surviving. First, the veteran frontman for the metal band Poison went on "The Celebrity Apprentice" and survived all the way to the end, winning the competition and raising more than $600,000 for diabetes research (he was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes in 1969, at age 6). During and after the show's filming, he survived several health scares, including an emergency appendectomy, a brain hemorrhage and diagnosis of a heart defect that will require surgery early next year.

The Harford County Liquor Control Board has to do better, and usually does, than the nonsense it perpetrated last week. The Mallet, a Fallston restaurant and bar, which so far has apparently followed the rules, shut down its lower level last Wednesday night and rented it out for a private birthday party. The party, hosted and paid for by a prominent Harford County developer as a surprise for his wife, featured a performance by Bret Michaels, an international rock star who in recent years has become just as famous for his reality TV presence.

Listen to a variety of music sources -- club owners, disc jockeys and record company executives -- and you'll hear that The Brand New Heavies is "the next big thing."Music for the '90s, they say, and whose to argue?The band's sound is hip, it's funky and, most importantly, it's crossing boundaries of music classification like no other release this year.Mixing big brass and hints of hip-hop with an infectious dance-pop sound and a wailing female vocalist named N'Dea Davenport, The Brand New Heavies is worth its weight in music.

Bret Michaels did it. Bobby Brown did it too, to much less success. So did Paula Abdul. The preferred vehicle for a musical comeback is not on the charts any more but on reality television. The latest to join that rich tradition is Toni Braxton, the Severn native who was one of the highest-selling artists of the 1990s but has seen her sales droop to dramatic lows, just 145,000 units for last year's "Pulse. " In the last decade she has also taken personal blows, a multimillion-dollar bankruptcy filed earlier this year being the most recent to attract unflattering attention from the tabloids.
