Bob Seger Hanging It Up? [VIDEO]

I’m glad I waited as long as I did to see Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band in concert. It gave me a new appreciation of Bob and his work.

My date that night nailed it when she said “he’s grown into his songs. His voice fits them better”.

Indeed: never a big fan of touring, “Turn the Page” was written when the artist was a mere twenty sevenyears old. But the song – a star’s tale of weariness, women and isolation while on the road – now takes on a new level of authenticity when sung by a sixty-six year old rock legend.

As does the whimsical recollections of “Night Moves” and “Mainstreet“, or the the regrets and pessimism of “Against The Wind“.

No, he didn’t do “Like a Rock” but that one speaks for itself as well.

Now in a recent interview, he says that while he will indeed do another round of dates in the fall, they could be his last.

“I don’t know if I wanna do this when I’m 67, y’know? I would remain writing songs, I don’t know about recording, y’know? I think I’d write for other people. The recording takes a lot more time than the writing, y’know? And I think I could better use my time writing and turning them over to someone else.”

On a seperate note, a recent statewide poll in Michingan finds that Seger is the people’s choice for the state’s best musical ambassador over such luminaries as Kid Rock, Ted Nugent, and Eminem.
