Hello All. I was just hoping some of the more knowledgable amongst us might have some answers to some of my random Michael Bolton questions.
I've read some place that at its peak, Michael had a vocal range of E2-E6. Can anyone confirm? Have any examples of songs where he hits these extreams, or if not, which song (studio or live) has his highest and lowest recorded notes? Anybody know what his current range is?
Is it true that Michael is deaf in one ear?
I know Michael was into Shotokan Karate in his younger days. Does he still take lessons or practice? Does he have any belts (if that form even has belts)?
ummm..... I think thats it for the moment :). Anybody else have wierd questions?
I am happy to read that he isn't deaf in one ear. Read the article/post a few minutes ago and was wondering. But tahnks for answering the question Payten asked. I was about to ask the same question!
Hi Billy and welcome to the forum! The sample put up here comes from a bootleg CD recorded in Paris France, during the “Time love and tenderness” tour called “L’amour fou”. Sometimes it comes back on again on EBay. Now, if you’re looking for an early video of Michael “Georgia” live, check this guy:
This was recorded on a tribute to Ray Charles show that was released on DVD a few years ago. I think it was something like “Ray Charles 50th anniversary” or something to that effect. Also, look on Youtube, there are a few performances of Michael on Jay Leno and one on David Letterman in 1988. I can’t remember if he sang “Georgia” but I think you’ll find what you want. You might also want to check the “new videos on Youtube” thread of this site:
All the great videos we find are put in that section, have fun and good luck! Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
