After four decades in the music industry, Michael Bolton has cemented himself as one of the most successful musicians of our time. The Soul of it All is his backstage pass into his life lived thus far - into the venues, buses, limos and hotel rooms of stardom, and finally into his home and heart.
His story will go long and dive deep, not only into his self-proclaimed 'vagabond vampire' life, but also into the belly of the beast that is the music industry, with its joys, follies and torments. From a 14-year-old kid performing in dive bars to struggling to provide for his wife and kids, to finally breaking through with the Soul Provider album, Bolton has fought for and earned a life most just dream of. The Soul of it All is his life, chockful of all the incredible stories, and the star-studded cast you'd expect, including: Pavarotti, Bob Dylan, Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Ray Charles and Lady Gaga.

I would recommend this audiobook. It is well narrated and I love the tone of his voice reading the book. You can "imagine" some situations when you are listening to it.
Dicover the great human being he is. He explains his life, his carreer, his achievements and goals. He talks about his family with the hard and good times, as life itself. He is sincere explaining things you do not expect.
Listen to his voice and the emotion he makes you feel.
It made me laugh and cry and think that you have to fight for whatever you want in this life and do not give up easily. And to keep yours near you.
"Really like Michael Bolton but........"
Love his singing voice but his speaking voice is dreary, flat and monotone. Could he not spare a little of the passion he displays in his singing into his reading?
Finding out how he struggled for many years before achieving success.
Have a different narrator.
