    How much fun do you think this would be? Being a band member?

    I was a huge BS fan back in the 70s.

    Still my favorite Bob Seeger song. My band in high school did this in an organ/bass/drum format, with me doing the "lead singer" thing.(not playing guitar)

    He has some really great fun songs and some real crap songs.

    Bob Seger always seemed like a good guy. He's got enough good to great songs that I'd love to be in his band.

    Mongrel is 5 stars, how is it not a bigger deal? Such a great listen.

    Big fan. Like most of his stuff. Some turds among roses but still one of my favorites. Great live show both times I saw Seger.

    Love how his current guitarist Rob McNelly nails Rick Vitos lines

    Never fully understood why "Old Time Rock and Roll" is the go to Seger song on radio when he has so many great songs.

    None of his contemporaries had as good a voice.

    It's my favorite too, must have been a blast performing it. I get amped up every time I watch that video. Love the screams and that organ just makes it.

    It became most popular and known throughout pop culture due to the movie with Tom Cruise.

    His repertoire is about like every other act that has carried on for 5-6 decades, including the Stones.

    My favorite of his songs too. Although I am far from an expert. I only know the radio hits.

    Seger is like the ultimate R&R, tasty, well done, stuff. Not a person I have an album of, not on the radar much, but when you hear one of his many many hits. "he da man"!

    I was never a huge fan of "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man," but I loved singing it with my dad band back when I had one. Conversely, when the drummer suggested had us try "Hollywood Nights," a song I've always liked, it was unbearably boring (and probably harder to pull off vocally, both in the singing and the selling/acting). It just kind of ambles along interminably.

    What incited us to do it with organ/bass/drums was a "live" TV appearance, with Seeger on keys and a bass and drummer, all mimicing the record, so I though that was how he performed. I was pretty naive in high school. If I saw a band on TV using Baldwin guitars or some other strange stuff, I assumed that's what they used. I never realized what "product placement" and endorsements were.
