Abstract:

Bolton is a phenomenally popular pop singer of approximately the same artistic attainment as the 1960s Tom Jones. The main rock-critic rap against him is a reluctance to take artistic chances. Big deal. He sells tons of records and concert tickets. This is a competently written, sunny-as-can-be collection of Bolton oddments, perfect for fans and informative for the merely curious. Nicely organized (some 120 pages are a dictionary of Bolton-related words and persons), the book suffers only from the inclusion of some lists and games that may invite scribbling and from its terminally upbeat tone, which is likely to be more of a problem for reviewers and librarians than for fans. It would be remiss not to note the profusion of photos; gonad-grinding tension leaps from the page in portrait after throbbing portrait. If your library can stock John Tesh, it can stock Michael Bolton.
