Learning that the actor was dead of the same brain hemorrhage he suffered in May, the rocker says, 'I'm one of the lucky ones, who made it through.'

Rocker feels lucky to be alive after hearing how tragic died of the same type of brain hemorrhage he survived just weeks earlier. The frontman faced the battle of his life after suffering a near-fatal hemorrhage in May, and he's still recovering from the medical emergency.

His good fortune was hammered home at the weekend following the death of former "Diff'rent Strokes" star Coleman, who died on Friday, May 28, just two days after a fall at his Utah home caused an intracranial hemorrhage.

Michaels tells U.S. news show Extra, "Gary Coleman having a hemorrhage, basically from the very same hemorrhage that I had, and passing away is extremely sad." He continues admitting, "And on the very day that I'm gonna try to start up my tour. I'm one of the lucky ones, who made it through."
