Sixty-five year old Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band performed Tuesday night at Philips Arena in a hit-filled two hour show. Robert Clarke Seger was born on May 6, 1945 in Dearborn, Michigan. He is one of rock music’s most successful singer-songwriters, mostly writing and recording songs that dealt with blue-collar themes. Seger is best known for such rock and roll hits as “Night Moves”, “Turn the Page”, and “Like a Rock”, and also co-wrote the Eagles number one hit “Heartache Tonight”. His iconic signature song “Old Time Rock and Roll” was named one of the Songs of the Century in 2001. “Old Time Rock & Roll” charted #2 as the most played Jukebox Singles of all Time, second only to Patsy Cline’s “Crazy”.
His songs have been covered by many artists including Thin Lizzy and Metallica. Bob Seger was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
