From Wikipedia – Robert Clark “Bob” Seger (born May 6, 1945) is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, and pianist. As a locally successful Detroit-area artist, he performed and recorded as Bob Seger and the Last Heard and Bob Seger System throughout the 1960s. By the early 1970s, he had dropped the “System” from his recordings and continued to strive for broader success with various other bands. In 1973, he put together the Silver Bullet Band, a group of Detroit-area musicians, with whom he became most successful on the national level with the album Live Bullet, recorded live with the Silver Bullet Band in 1975 at Cobo Hall in Detroit, Michigan. In 1976, he achieved a national breakout with the studio album Night Moves. On his studio albums, he also worked extensively with the Alabama-based Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, which appeared on several of Seger’s best-selling singles and albums.
A roots rocker with a classic raspy, shouting voice, Seger wrote and recorded songs that dealt with love, women, and blue-collar themes and were an exemplar of heartland rock. Seger has recorded many hits, including “Night Moves“, “Turn the Page“, “Still the Same“, “We’ve Got Tonight“, “Against the Wind“, “You’ll Accomp’ny Me“, “Shame on the Moon“, “Like a Rock“, and “Shakedown“, which was written for Beverly Hills Cop II. Seger also co-wrote the Eagles‘ number-one hit “Heartache Tonight“, and his iconic recording of “Old Time Rock and Roll” was named one of the Songs of the Century in 2001.
With a career spanning five decades, Seger continues to perform and record today. Seger was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 and the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2012. (More Wiki History On Bob Seger? Bob Seger Wikipedia)
