    Well, if he would just slip into some John Varvatos skinny jeans and wrap a scarf around his neck, he could look 16 again. Works for me!

    I have a special place in my heart for Bob Seger songs. I like to get drunk, change his lyrics, and serenade folks... for instance: Against The Wind becomes Against her/his/whomevers-CHIN! and when it's time to sing You'll accompany me...it becomes some form of You know baby, you're a CUNT to me....and so on and so forth....I don't know. I enjoy it, give it a shot, at the very least it's obnoxious.

    We rolled across the high plains, deep into the mountains.

    It looks like it works on paper but not when he actually sings it.

    Seger was the soundtrack to my teens and twenties.

    About a year ago I was flipping thru the channels and came across American Idol or one of those shows. There was some old guy singing a Bob Seger song with one of the contestants. I watched for about 30 seconds before I realized it was actually Bob Seger.

    I'm probably older now than Seger was at his peak.

    He did it right. Made his bones in the music business. Lived the life. Then he went away and raised a family. Came back to music when his kids were grown.

    Happy Birthday, Bob.

    I always think of the movie Mask when I hear Bob Seger. Fucking movie ruined him for me.

    The sad part for me is when you see artists like Bob Seger and know that there are no new artists today like him. What I mean is there isn't a market for him. Let's say Bob was born in 1990 and is 25 years old today. What radio station's would play him? Who would buy his albums? The same kids that buy One Direction and Taylor Swift? Would any of the late night shows have him on? Would he be on the Voice or AGT?

    The reality is if Bob were born in 1990 he would likely be playing at some hole in the wall bar in Michigan to a bunch of loyal drunks that come to see him week after week. He would also run a landscaping business on the side to pay the bills.

    You don't see the guitar virtuosos and lyrical genius artists today like you did years ago. I miss that genre of music and artistry.

    Had a Bob Seger tape stuck in the tape deck on my first car and the antenna didn't work so that was all I had. Might have been a greatest hits. I remember Fire Lake and Night Moves were my favorite. No one I know even knows who Bob is.
