Bob Seger Information Continued
Bob Seger's early work is hard-rocking and shows the influence of fellow Michiganders Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels as well as pioneer rock-and-rollers such as Chuck Berry. Notable songs during this time were "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man", "Get Out of Denver", and his classic take on life on the road, "Turn the Page". The Bob Seger System incarnation was essentially a Michigan proto-punk band not very unlike the SRC or The Frost. The Bob Seger System's song "2+2=?" is considered by some to be one of the most fiery anti-war songs ever written.
Bob Seger achieved a commercial breakthrough with his 1976 album Night Moves which featured several hits including the highly evocative title song. Subsequently, Bob Seger had success with rockers such as "Hollywood Nights" and mellower mid-tempo ballads such as "We've Got Tonight", "Fire Lake" (recorded 1979, and featured Don Henley, Timothy B. Schmit, and Glenn Frey on backing vocals) and "Against the Wind". His most recognizable songs are almost certainly "Old Time Rock & Roll" (featured in the film Risky Business) and "Like a Rock". Bob Seger also co-wrote the Eagles #1 hit song "Heartache Tonight" from their 1979 album The Long Run. Bob Seger was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 15, 2004.
