Biography

Hailing from the rough-and-tumble Michigan rock scene, which spawned the likes of Mitch Ryder, Ted Nugent, Alice Cooper and the Stooges, Bob Seger was a gutsy, blue-collar singer-songwriter whose blend of classic rock and R&B, as heard in radio staples like "Rock and Roll Never Forgets," "Old Time Rock and Roll" and countless others, found exceptional favor with audiences from the late 1960s into the 21st century. He began playing in garage bands while still in high school, and his gritty vocals, heavily influenced by both John Fogerty and James Brown, soon made him a leading figure on the city's music scene during the late 1960s. It would be almost a decade later, however, before Seger broke into the national market through rootsy, soulful numbers like "Katmandu" and "Still the Same," as well as ballads like "We've Got Tonight," all of which would become fixtures on FM radio for the next four decades. Seger's popularity peaked in the early 1980s with "Against the Wind," among others, before a long, fallow period in the 1990s. However, as one of his most popular songs dictated, rock-n-roll never forgets, and Seger rebounded in the 21st century with the well-received Face the Promise (2006). A definitive artist of 1970s and 1980s rock, Bob Seger remained one of the genre's hardest working and most successful players for over a half-century.
