    *** SPOILER ALERT ***
    If those are your favorites, then no he did not. He did cover his bases with just about all of his biggest commercial successes, and sprinkled in some "non-hits", like the aforementioned Travellin' Man/Beautiful Loser, Her Strut, Hollywood Nights and a cool rendition of "Forever Young".

    Oh...

    Bob hates what his fans love.

    (Most of his past.)

    Jack White has offered to go through his entire catalog and do a royal reissue treatment on all of it - for no compensation.

    Bob passed on the offer...:eek:

    Yeah, it was a good time, but I wish I could remember it better. Sadly, my buddy I went with passed away a few years ago, and he was a big MC 5 fan. I do remember it was outdoors, we brought a cooler full of beer along, and the tickets were about $5.00.

    Bob's only hit song at the time was "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man, good times :cool:..

    In memory my good buddy Randy...

    I think it was 73. Grand River raft race. Everybody waiting on the grass for Mahogany Rush. Skinny guy in jeans comes out. Trouble at the border, Mahogany Rush hung up, not going to make it. Crowd: Awwwww! Skinny guy says "but I'll play a few songs for you". Out in the crowd somebody hollers " that's Bob Seger!" Seger! Seger! And it was Heavy Music and everyone was happy.

    Bob played Naples a couple of years ago where he has a home.

    Can't say I'm a fan. I like his music, but I've never bought an album. That said, I love Turn the Page.

    Anyhow, he put on a great show lots of energy and a long list of songs I couldn't have named, but that I recognized.

    He was a real pro. I agree it's sad these are getting old.

    Went to see Art Garfunkel last year and it was a major disappointment. He didn't even try to sing the 3rd verse of Bridge Over Troubled Waters and spent more time freaking about his book than doing songs.

    Glad you guys are still diggin on Bob, glad he is still around, but he can rest on his laurels now. Last time I saw him at Staples he was cutting off at the end of the lines to save breath instead of the aw aw aws vocalizing. First saw him at Hudson's Oakland Mall, Troy, Mich, 1968. Go deep and check out Back In 72, with Rosalie and Neon Sky, with a studio band that next backed Eric on 461 Ocean Blvd...

    Reminds me of the anecdote Nugent told about Seger debating whether to go on stage back in the olden days because there was some water leaking in at a rainy venue,and Seger was rightly concerned about electrocuting someone...Nugent claims he offered for his band to go on in their place and told Bob Seger,"there's no room in rock n roll for crybabies!". I hope it's true.

    We joke about how many "final tours" he's done here in Michigan, his home state. I think he's on his 6th one haha

    Good for him though!
