(Radio.com) Michael Bolton always knew he would write a book about his life, he just wasn't sure if anyone would care.
But after a little SNL clip of Bolton dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow went viral, it seemed everyone was interested in getting to know the singer a little better.
Luckily, as Bolton told Radio.com, he's had a successful career that has lent itself to many stories.
"It's been a long climb up a mountain or a long walk out into the desert, whatever you like," he joked.
Ever since Bolton started traveling with his computer, he's been sure to jot down everything from lyric notes to interesting observations, but admits writing some of the more personal passages from his new memoir, The Soul Of It All, like his parent's divorce and his breakup with longtime love Nicollette Sheridan, was difficult. But as Bolton notes that the book's title leads a reader to believe his life was not all fun and games.
"The title is not The Fun Of It All," Bolton joked. "So I realized while working at [the book] the first month or so, that the only way to speak was from the place of my original experience and what it was really like to go there." more on this story
