Bob Seger


Robert Clark Bob Seger (born May 6, 1945) is an American rock musician who achieved his greatest success in the 1970s and 1980s and continues to record and perform today. Seger started his musical career in the 1960s in his native Ann Arbor, Michigan, soon after playing in and around Detroit as a singer and as the leader of Bob Seger and the Last Heard, and then later the Bob Seger System. Best known for his work as Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band, a group he formed in 1974. Seger was known as a workhorse midwestern roots-rocker who dealt with blue-collar themes and toured constantly in support of his frequent album releases, spanning five decades. In April 1976, Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band had an even bigger commercial breakthrough with the album Live Bullet, recorded over two nights in Detroit's Cobo Hall in September 1975. The album stayed on the Billboard charts for 168 weeks, peaking at #34, easily Seger's highest charting album to that time. It also contained Seger's hit rendition of Tina Turner's Nutbush City Limits (#69 US) as well as Seger's own classic take on life on the road, Turn the Page, from Back in '72. It also harkened back to his late 1960's successes with both Heavy Music and Ramblin' Gamblin' Man making appearances. Critic Dave Marsh later wrote that Live Bullet is one of the best live albums ever made ... In spots, particularly during the medley of 'Travelin' Man'/'Beautiful Loser', Seger sounds like a man with one last shot at the top....
