When are these guys going to get on the road?!! I'd love to see this man and his band. His voice is rough, but the spirit and soul is still there. Bob Seger is always underated too.

Bob is a Florida resident now with a home in the Naples area. There are alot of retired people in the Naples area.....
Just finished listening to one of my all time Seger favorites..." Roll Me Away"... one of the best biker songs ever. This is one preformer that I believe.... had the experience......wrote the lyrics......and then decided on the music to back it up. He is one of the greatest rock & roll story tellers ever.

Sadly, Bob Seger is retired. He turned 60 this spriing. I wouldn't expect him to tour ever again.

That's what I was driving at with my Naples FL and retirement comment. Lot's of great memories starting with my 1st time seeing him in concert in '75.

Bob Seger truly is a great storyteller. Heard whatever song it is "There I am up on the stage, etc." (The name escapes me right now) the other day and really listened to the lyrics. What a great song. Would like to think there is a possibility of him touring again, there are plenty over 60 that tour. Pinetop Perkins tours and he turns 92 in July!

Bob Seger - definitely one of the King's of Michigan rock, along with Teg Nugent, the Stooges, the MC5, the Rationals, ? & the Mysterians, etc. Great stuff!

I'm a big Bob Seger fan, Live Bullet and Nine Tonight are ass kickin' live sets. I've never seen him live, would have loved to in the '80s (was to young for '70s). But after seeing him at the RnR HoF, I hope he doesn't tour again. While bearing in mind that he is 60 yrs old, I felt bad seeing how really old he looked, played and sounded. He seemed listless and retired. But while he was in his prime, man, he and the SBB made some great music. Enjoy Florida, Bob. You've earned this time and all of our respect!

Bob has battled throat cancer which would explain his singing voice not being what it used to be and also his early maturation as a senior citizen.

And along those same lines....what do Bob Segar and the Silver Bullet Band and Grand Funk Railroad have in common, besides both being MI acts?

Larry Borjas was the bass player for ? and the Mysterians. And I'm guessing he joined Grand Funk Railroad?

To answer my own question, after the breakup of GFR in the 80's, Don Brewer, drums, and Craig Frost, keyboards, toured with Segar as part of the Silver Bullet Band. When Bob played the RRHOF show, Don was right there on drums. I didn't notice if Craig was on keys or not, though.

I saw Bob & The SBB about a dozen times in the late 70s thru mid 80s. Always one of my favorites.

First time I saw him as an opening act at a festival where he played a 30 minute set before, some band I don't know, then Johnny & Edgar Winter with Rick Derringer, then 10 Years After (Later?) and Kiss finished things off. I was there for Johnny & Edgar but had heard Bob Seger's Katmandu on the radio. He was the best of all of them by far that day.

Then I saw him play a show where Humble Pie opened, then Bob Seger, then Mother Finest, followed by Uria Heep & Foghat. He blew all of them away too. Humble Pie was good. And this was right after Night moves was realeased.

Seger had some great music before he ever was heard of nationally. He did make his way to BIG success though.

Later I was fortunate enough to see him front row a couple of times.


It's kind of funny actually, he scheduled a show at the Omni in Atlanta and they had just started cracking down on camping out in the parking lots the night before tickets went on sale. We couldn't get a decent place in line and ordered by phone and got bad seats.

The show sells out and they announce another. We get a place in line this time but we are still half way back on the floor. The show sells out and they announce yet another.

I had a brain storm. This cop had been sitting in the parking lot running people off the other two nights with the instructions that at 6:00 am we could all pull into the parking lot and form a line at the door. Well at 6:00 there was 3 dozen Mario Andrettis trying to get Seger tickets. Anybody that pulled in too early was told to leave by the cop.

I told my buddy we should have his wife pull in and behind the store at 5:30, drop us off and then pull around front. She did and the cop came over to her and made her leave. We stood behind the store till 6:00 peering around the corner every now and then. At 6:00 here comes the race car drivers and we just walked around to the front and started the line. A perfect plan that got us on the front row for the 3rd show. What fun those days were.

Somewhere in the media, tv, radio, a magazine, I learned that Bob Seger recently said he no longer feels strong enough to tour. This is sad. I'm not a huge fan, but sixty is not that old, and only a few years older than Gregg. And is Dickey what, 60 or 61?

Growing up in Southwestern Ontario and being close enough to get the signal from the Big 8 CKLW in Windsor we heard a lot of Seger from Ramblin Gamblin Man on.When he put the SBB together he did a stealth show in London to road test the band/tunes and I got tix as I was working in a record store at the time. My favs are Back In 72( with Seger's version of Midnight Rider complete with horns and most of the band that left him to go play with Clapton...) and Smokin OP's with Teegarden and VanWinkle and a guitar player named Mike Bruce.

Well yeah 60 isn't too old, but for Bob it is. After having throat cancer I don't think anyone would be strong enough to sing in the spotlight. He played at the rock and roll inductions this year and it was excellent, but his voice is truely shot. Can anyone answer why he had throat cancer? Smoking?
