This article is about Michael Bolton, now I know the first thing that comes to mind with this singer is "Tell me how am I supposed to live without you", or any A/C, soft rock song like that, but believe it or not, Michael didn't start out that way, in 1978, Michael Bolton (then performing under his real name Michael Bolotin) was the lead singer of a metal band called blackjack.



It wasn't until 1983 when he went solo, and changed his name to Michael Bolton and released his 3rd solo album

This is a pretty good rock n roll album, if you don't believe me about Michael rocking out, just listen to "Hometown Hero", and "Fighting for my life",then come back to me and tell me what you think, anyway, you might of might not remember, but there was a music video for "Fool's game", almost every track on here is good except for the last track "I Almost Believed You", to me this is the only decent album Michael ever did.

In 1985 Michael came back with his 4th solo album (and his last metal album) "Everybody's Crazy".



The album didn't do as good as the last one did, however, it is still considered to be one of the best Heavy Metal/AOR albums of all time, the title track can be heard on "Back to School" with Rodney Dangerfield.



In 1987 Michael departed from hard rock, on his 5th solo album "The Hunger", and brought us all wussie soft rock songs from not only that album, but other aside from that one, a couple years ago, he did a sinatra album that sucked just like the rest of his other albums, truth I think Michael Bolton had a voice well suited for Hard Rock, he should once again bring us a Hard Rock album, the other night I had a dream where I was at a MB Concert, and right after Michael did "When a Man Loves a Woman", he did "Fool's Game", why he changed I'll never know why.
