I’ve been meaning to start this thread for a while now. I’ve been reading since the beginning of this forum, many discussions started by fans who simply wanted to share their joy of being a Michael Bolton fan. We have threads to share concert reviews, some to share news, videos etc, but not exactly what I have in mind. I would like for this thread not to be about meeting Michael, but about MB related moments in our daily lives, that anyone can take part in. I’m sure we all have tons of fun stories about how the existence of our Michael made us smile today.
For example: I remember once working on the computer and being stressed out to finish a job, then I took a break and turned on the radio, SILYBIL was on and I felt like I’d been given a big hug! Also, I remember once reading on one of the old message boards, someone had gone to a thrift shop and found an MB T-shirt and it made her day! Another story of mine has to do with my husband driving with “The one thing” on, stopping at a light and the guy in the next car asked him who that was and said this was great music! Your anecdotes can also be about how you've converted a "non believer" or your child’s discovery of Michael and sometimes we have as many stories as we have kids! Anyway, I guess I’d like this thread to be kind of a Michael Bolton “Vegetable soup for the soul”. :D I have a few stories in my own life like these and even started my own personal document a while back and I thought: why not share our stories together? So there you go MB fans: share away! Take care and hugs to all, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Yes that's the one:)! Puffy shirt and All:)! Thanks for finding that for Us!
Mary (meg's mom)!
On the video, loved how Michael & Percy introduced one another @ the end--saying their names. I think that was in Chicago.
This was from Center Stage filmed in Chicago I think when he sang with Percy Sledge..Great show
I have it on VHS!!
Robin in MD:)
Nobody can top this performance:)! Brings back memories:)!

Hey Mary, I love that concert: I found it years ago on CD on EBay! It sounds like it was ripped off the video, but I don't care, I didn't have it. :D You should absolutely treat yourself and have a girls night with Meg and watch it! :D Take care Mary and have a great day. Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada <3
P.S.: Sylvia, of course it's the right video, thank you! I just love how Percy seems so excited to be there himself. I remember Michael describing his meeting with Percy saying how Percy had a tear in his eye, knew who he was and was honored. Then Michael said: "Please, it's the other way around!". It must have been such a thrill for him... :D
Mary, I love your Valentine story. That VH1 show was the program that really hit me. I loved Michael since 1987 or 1988 but that one in February 1993 really hit me. Love your story to, Kathy while driving down your street & sharing Michael's music. He is the best medicine that's for sure.
I was visiting my 2 friends in Mississippi in December 1991. The 3 of us didn't know if we liked Michael or not. i know I did. We heard "Georgia" & really started talking about Michael. In fact, my friend Siri saw him next year early. Wow! Then, the 1st concert I went to was 8/12/92. That's a long story too&I may share it sometime. Girls, I have to limit my writing. Hand problems unfortunately but Michael's music pulls us all through no matter what & what with Karina's story, I have nothing to fuss about.
Hey Kathy, thanks for wanting to share your sunshine with us. Well, if you don't want sorrowful tears, will you take hugs? :D I'm sending you a bouquet of them, take care my friend, Big warm bear hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada
