If you have a deathly fear of werewolves and a nostalgic love for old time rock and roll, then Bob Seger and his Silver Bullet Band might appeal to both needs. Seger hovered around near stardom through the '60s and early '70s, finally breaking through to the national conscience with his 1976 album Night Moves. With classic rock hits like "Night Moves", "Old Time Rock and Roll", "Turn the Page" and "Against the Wind", Seger has cemented himself as an American rock legend.
Robert Clark 'Bob' Seger (born May 6, 1945) is an American rock and roll 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 he continued to strive for broader success with other various bands. In 1973, he put together The Silver Bullet Band, an evolving group of Detroit-area musicians, with whom he became most successful. In 1976, he achieved a national breakout with the 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, blue-collar themes and was an exemplar of heartland rock.
