Bret Michaels is getting a lot of mileage out of his head bop with a piece of scenery at Sunday’s Tonys. The Poison frontman and Rock of Love star, who sustained a bloodied lip and a fractured nose, was honored to be part of the show and laughed off the mishap, according to his rep Joann Mignano on People.com.

“He told me, ‘All I remember is Shrek and the donkey helping me up, and Liza [Minnelli] giving me a towel. And Bret was laughing when he heard [Tonys host] Neil Patrick Harris said he gave new meaning to ‘headbanging.’ “
