Michael Bolton – Oh Yeah!


Debbie at the office………

Last time I talked about one of my favorite Artists. This morning I was thinking about another on the train going in to work. I am on my lunch hour. Michael Bolton is another favorite of mine. My daughter doesn’t like him. But then we seldom see eye to eye on anything except clothes and food.

I heard Michael Bolton was over in Azerbaijan, which is in Asia. He is giving concerts there. I haven’t seen When is will be touring again But he is releasing a new album in May. I can hardly wait. I have preordered it on CD from Amazon and if you want information on it or where Mike is you can go to his website at: http://www.michaelbolton.com/

The name of the new album is “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”. Which I recall is the name of a song by Aretha Franklin done in the 60’s.

My daughter thinks my taste in music “sucks” a direct quote I might add.

Mike is another singer who started in the 70’s and made the transition form Heavy Metal to contemporary and easy Listening where he has been a mainstay there for years.

He’s released 19 Albums and 35 Singles Which shows he’s always working on new projects.

In the last 10 years or so he’s released 9 Albums. Which is about one every year to year and a half.

Plus he travels all over the world giving concerts when he’s not writing music for himself and others he’s in the studio. He still finds time to be with his daughter.

He has worked many other vocalists and his Charity work is known worldwide. I think that’s why I like him so much, he is so versatile and his voice no one else has that. And My favorite song “When A Man Loves A Woman” need I say more.

He is going out on tour this year and maybe if I can get the time I will try and take some time off and go to one of his concerts. Maybe I can convince my daughter Maria to go to(Especially if I spring for the tickets).

We may rent a van and make it a summer getaway and go to Georgia I have some cousins down that way and Peachtree is in the south metro area of Atlanta which is a beautiful city with some great restaurants and of course shopping.

I haven’t been there in years. Last time was for a business convention in 2006. I toured Ted Turner’s CNN headquarters. which is owned by AOL now and after Time Warner dumped him in around before they merged with AOL in 2000.

But, Michael will be performing in July and I will see if I can get tickets and see if Maria wants to go.

I think it would be good to get away from the city for a while and maybe try to do a little bonding, as I know I am not at home as much as I like and it’s hard on her.

We’ll see what happens……
