Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

My Valentine’s Day Gift To You

This is Bob Seger (and his Silver Bullet Band) live at Cobo Hall on 6/15/80.

This is not Bob Seger (or his Silver Bullet Band), but don’t hold that against it.



This is a YouTube-to-MP3 ripper that’s been working well for me, and it’s free. The file gets added to your computer as one big chunk instead of as individual tracks, but I mostly use it for live shows, and you’re supposed to listen to the whole damn thing.

    I saw Bob on July 19, 1980 in Cleveland.

    The man delivered,

    I still like to give a Bob Seger “Mhnnn” when I sing along with Bob

    I forget what song he does the most of it, but he has this vocal thing, not quite a “Yeah” not quite a Grhh..

    But something in between.

    Saw the Bob Seger System (pre-Silver Bullet) at the Expo in Portland Maine on my 13th birthday in 1980. It was my first rock concert of any kind, and it was *L O U D*. Dunno how I got permission to go unaccompanied, but I did. I saw our school’s guidance counselor escorting his unfortunate scion. Bob’s song Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man was on the local station.

    A crap recording of the opener exists:

      That’s, er, *1970*, not 1980. I wish I were 10 years younger. Time Sheath anyone?

  3. That’s some good Bob there, thanks! And some good Alto Reed too. He was my favorite Silver Bullet.

      I was heartbroken when I found out it wasn’t his real name.
