Feb. 20, 2015 – Had a great time with my wife at the Bob Seger concert last night. Only sat down once, during one of the ballads from his new album. The crowd knew almost every word to every song. No pyrotechnics, no lasers, no lip-syncing. Just perfectly timed and well-rehearsed Old Time Rock n Roll, with a few personal stories.
Seger said in 1980 his mom called him from Hawaii and was so excited because she heard one of his songs being played there, which happened to be her favorite. There were no lyrics, just an orchestra. They played it beautifully. “Where were you, Mom?” Seger asked. In the elevator. The song was ‘We’ve got tonight.”
Thanks for the music and memories, Bob!
