Following the death of folk icon Pete Seeger, Twitter blew up yesterday with fans paying respect . . . to Bob Seger. Apparently, some people got the 'We Shall Overcome' songsmith confused with the 'Old Time Rock & Roll' singer, who's still very much alive.
It took two decades, Eddie Murphy and a five-year break from the Top 10 for Bob Seger to score his first, and only, No. 1 hit. On top of all that, after recording for the same company for 20 years, that hit single was on a different label -- a one-off song cut for a soundtrack album.
If I didn't know better I'd think John Fogerty has written a song for everybody over the course of his career. The new album, 'John Fogerty - Wrote A Song For Everyone' recruited many artists to join him on this project that compliments us with two new songs.
Seger and band pulled out hit after hit, with the usual suspects like 'Night Moves' and 'Turn The Page' as well as deeper catalog numbers like 'Beautiful Loser' and 'Ramblin' Gamblin' Man' gracing the two-hour show.
