Michael Bolton Book Signing Held at Sloan Center

mbolten1 300BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (2/4/13) – Singer/Songwriter Michael Bolton was hosted by the Warren County Public Library for a book signing of his new memoir titled “The Soul of It All: My Music, My Life.” Bolton is famous for music hits such as “When a Man Loves a Woman”, “How Am I Supposed to Live without You” and “How Can We Be Lovers.”
 
Hundreds of people were in attendance as Bolton spoke for around ten minutes and then held a question and answer session. He then signed books for those in attendance.
 
Bolton spoke about his life and the struggles of it.
 
“The starving artist syndrome is a very accurate cliché,” he said.
 
He said that he is used to talking about his life in the area of creating music, but now he is talking about other chapters of his life. Bolton had a record deal when he was 16 years old, but did not have a hit until he was 34. He said he was “an eighteen year, overnight success story.” Despite all of the struggles, Bolton said success finally came.

During the Q & A session, Bolton answered questions about his granddaughters, recent projects as well as future endeavors.
 
He has pitched a sitcom that he is playing a part in. In this sitcom, Bolton plays a father who is trying to build a relationship with his estranged daughter that has moved in with him but he is as mature as a 12-year-old. He therefore hires a female journalist to help with the home situation that ends up having to babysit both Bolton and his on-screen daughter.
 
Bolton has also come close to performing in the musicals “Phantom” and “Les Miserables” on Broadway.
 
One audience member asked Bolton if he would ever consider doing a show in Bowling Green. In response, he said he would “more than consider it.” He would hope for an invitation.
 
Before the signing of the books, Steve Marcum, Vice President of the library board of trustees, came on stage and presented Bolton with a plaque that names him as a Kentucky Colonel. This plaque was issued by Governor Steve Beshears.
 
Bolton’s memoir can be purchased at bookstores.
