A Michael Bolton video?

I remember playing this song on the radio.. a lot. His real name is Michael Bolotin and he was also in a band called "Blackjack" before he got completely creepy in the mid 80s. He made a ton of dough, though.

Here's the promo on's very funny. "Foreigner was the biggest name in rock music in 1977 and in 1979, the hottest name in rock and roll will be...Blackjack"!! Also in the band, Bruce Kulick, who went on to play with Kiss. One of the songs featured on the promo video is the one of their only songs that got air play, it's called "Love Me Tonight".

Proof positive, kids, that Michael Bolton was indeed, at one time, a rocker. Shocking!
I have their album and thought it was pretty good.

Bruce Kulick is a good scout, no doubt about that, but Bolton?!? Oy! Although, I do seem to remember Bolton and his band getting a few spins on the old "Headbanger's Ball" on MTV before he went over to the Dark Side...
