Can't wait. I'd buy Bob if he was singing Old MacDonald Had A Farm

Well, he is 61.

I'm actually glad he's decided against coloring his hair and gone with the gray look. There was also a short piece on him on ET a few days ago and he also has never had his teeth fixed (I'm serious, seeing all these celebrities with perfect, blindingly white teeth freaks me out a bit).

BTW, one of the best concerts I have ever attended was Bob and the SBB at the late great Omni in Atlanta on May 6, 1978. Stranger in Town had just been released. At the time I knew very little about his stuff (got the floor level tickets from a friend who had to cancel at the last minute) but the show was flat-out awesome.

ETA that Sweet (or The Sweet) was the opening act. They had a big hit at the time with "Love is Like Oxygen" and played a short set. Unfortunately, I think they were trying to put their bubblegum-metal days behind them and didn't play "Ballroom Blitz", "Little Willy", or "Wig Wam Bam", gloriously silly (but still rocking) songs.

He's also thinking about putting his music online (he's been one of the few big holdouts, along with the Beatles and Zeppelin).
This could be the funniest thing I've ever read on the internet.

An '05 Bob Segar recording? I'm also scared.

So you're a little bit older and a lot less bolder
Than you used to be
So you used to shake 'em down
But now you stop and think about your dignity
So now sweet sixteen's turned sixty-one

You can listen to the new Cd at Clearchannelmusic I think the best songs on there are

1.Wreck this Heart
2.Wait for Me
3.No Matter who you are
4.Real Mean Bottle
5.The Answers in the Question
6.The Long Goodbye

The rest just sound like filler to me, but I think it's a big improvement over It's a Mystery the only song I really liked on there was "I wonder".

So, now his fans have had a few months to absorb the new album.

I think it's excellent, if uneven. For me, "No More" is by far the standout, followed by "No Matter Who You Are" and "Wait for Me". "No More" is one of his best as it is, but it could have been a masterpiece on the order of "The Fire Inside" if he had written in one more verse and chorus. It ends a little prematurely, but the use of strings is ingenious.
"No Matter Who You Are" is one of his patented driving rockers, with especially good, pounding piano work.
Throughout the album, his voice, one of the best in the business, is in top form.

Your'e post is going to make me take out this Cd and listen too "No More" again because I can't remember it sticking out in my head the first time. Thanks!

Hope you like it. It's one of his lovely softer numbers. Some people prefer his louder, grungier bar-band stuff, but I think he composes some of the best melodies in rock. Listen especially for the resonance in his voice and the piano in the lines, "It was forty years ago when I was young, and the desert not the jungle heard the guns". Beautiful! And the strings interlude after the first chorus. Glorious!

Any idea of the price?

And Bob Segar - Live Bullet is a recording that I listened to a *lot* when I was younger. Great stuff, and I recognize a few of the songs off of this early Segar recording.

Why can't he simply release Seven, fully, and be done with it? It is as perfect as Seger can get...

Bob Seger - Ride Out

Does anyone know what the two exclusive tracks are for the ultimate CD version from Target? Apparently, Target has an exclusive version with two additional tracks but they are TBD on the website. Trying to figure out who has the best deal for this CD.

Cartwheel by Target has a 25% off coupon for this release :
http://cartwheel.target.com/o/bob-se...-out/-/MjAxNTY

And it says
contains 2 exclusive songs, "It All Goes On" and "Passin' Through".
So there's your answer.

Re: Bob Seger - Ride Out

I was going to start a thread for this album, but figured no one here would give a shit. Likely the great Seger's swan song, as the title hints.

I saw him in Vegas on his last tour. Dude really can rock for someone in their mid-60s. Thought he looked like Papa Smurf now.

^69 to be precise. What would the wags call it, Granddad Rock? I don't give a flying. He rocks, and he seems like a really nice guy as well. His previous album, Face the Promise, was fantastic.

Re: Bob Seger Discussion

Has anyone seen Seger recently on this "final" tour? I've never seen him before and always wanted to. He's playing at an amphitheater in the summer and the lawns seats are about $75 with fees, which is nuts IMO. Amphitheaters tickets can usually be gotten cheaper and I'm debating just waiting it out and getting something closer to the show. But this one could fill up quickly because has been playing and selling out arenas.

I haven't seen him - or anyone else - live, but his latest album, I Knew You When, was terrific. I hope it's not his final one.

Re: Bob Seger Discussion

have not seen the tour myself but I've heard good things. If he comes around to Boston again I will be getting tickets but he was here last year and I'd be surprised to see another leg come through this way...
