This past weekend in Lexington, Ky., an on-duty police sergeant named Jason Rothermund delivered an impromptu cover of Poison’s famous power ballad “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.” Rothermund said in a Facebook post that is was during an Independence Day festival at local area park, and that he was put on the spot to perform. He said, ”When they call out ‘I need Sergeant Jason Rothermund up here’ over the mic in front of thousands of people, you kinda have to go!.” He answered the call, headed to the mic and performed his version of the song in uniform.
Since then his performance has caught the attention of many, including Poison frontman Bret Michaels. Michaels took to his Twitter account and called the officer’s performance “truly awesome.” He also thanked Sergeant Rothermund for his service. To that, the Lexington Police replied with a photo of Rothermund giving a thumbs up, stating that he’s seen Michaels in concert four times and is “in shock” that the singer replied.
