Tell me how you go from this kind of heavy metal:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qy2XMYh99js

to this:?

Anyone else can tell me other artists that went on such a drastic career curve?

Sorry Sam, that's understandable, in no way am I a fan, just a bit flabergasted that he started his career in that way to what he ended up as. Anyway, I screwed the first link up, see it to believe it.

I love Michael Bolton´s first two albums.
Those are classic hard rock/aor.

The 3rd one had some good songs
but the rest of his career just sucks.

But hey, i´m sure he made lots of dollars
with his ballads and got some women too [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

I didn't click on the links that Riptide provided. But since Sam Hain mentioned that it involves Michael Bolton, then it's a good thing that I didn't see them!

However, two good websites that I CAN recommend is this:

I was once at a HMV instore with Lee Aaron where she was singing jazz, it really was an eye opener that the Metal Queen of my youth was doing bebop Pat Benetar kind of went the jazzy/blues direction late in her career.

Love that song - Metal Queen.

Very strange how some artists change like that.

Alex Skolnick(guitarist)from Testament plays quite a bit of jazz now.

Bolton may go back to metal (or perhaps explore the country genre) now that it appears he and his sweetheart spilt. Boy never saw that coming.......... [Roll Eyes]

I actually own that Pat Boone cd, found it for $2. I tried to get a refund, but they said no way. LOL.

I heard Bolton and Sheridan split up because she was seeing Kenny G on the side. LOL.

I think early Pantera was glammed up hair metal, before and during Phil joined.

I remember seeing that Tori Amos single, i think it was called Y Kant Tori Read or something to that degree.

I also have the first record TFF's Roland orzabal and Curt Smith did called the Graduate. They wear suits and have a Mod/ska/Jam sound.

So....that's what Michael Bolton started out like?

I was thinking it was going to be a current song by him.

The title to that song...Everybody's Crazy...I never heard it....but it's a song that I think should be sung today...because I look around at people all the time, and that's exactly what I say.

I was thinking about Feargal Sharkey the other day, there's 80's fans who know only A Good Heart, it's like they never knew his pop/punk past. He sang with the Undertones, one of the best pop/punk bands of the late 70's. The Irish Ramones was a tag they had, and their song Teenage kicks was reportedly influential Brit DJ John Peel's favorite song of all time. No too shabby.

Not many people now Loverboy's Rob Dean's past, he was the bassist for X-Ray Spex, he even played on their 1995 reunion album. Just boggles the mind that he went from a great punk band to the commercial beast that was Loverboy.

I'm not a fan of either one of those groups, but you are thinking of Paul (not Rob) Dean.

There is a Rob Dean, but Rob played in a British group called Japan from the mid-1970's to the early 80's.

Loverboy's Paul Dean was in a previous band from Canada, called Streetheart.

It would seem to strange that one guy goes from one completely different musically styled group to another, and across the Atlantic Ocean for that.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but are you sure it's the same Paul Dean?

Yep Stevie, my mistake, Rob Dean was the guitarist from Japan. It was indeed Paul Dean, who went from X-Ray to Streetheart, then bcame the svengali of Loverboy. I guess everyone's got to have their meal ticket.

Just listening through the Back To School soundtrack which I got mostly because I dig the Jude Cole title track plus Oingo Bongo's Dead Man's Party and then I came across this great track by Michael Bolton - https://youtu.be/Ga_reU5lasQ which surprised me as I think I have only ever heard his mostly soppy ballads that he seemed to do later on in his career!

I remember that Michael Bolton song, and surprisingly it got a fair amount of AirPlay here in Western PA. This area is known for the worst radio stations ever, with unending play of the same 20 songs by artists like Fleetwood Mac and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
