I like "Shame on the Moon" well enough, although it takes a while to become interesting. The verses plod a bit and the only part I really like is the two-line chorus. "Against the Wind" on the other hand has an emotional power that "Shame on the Moon" doesn't. It has that drama that I love in a song. For me, "Against the Wind" is beautiful and moving and "Shame on the Moon" is just alright.

Of course it's all subjective - those are just my impressions.

My favorite too. Love it. I like Shame on the Moon, too, but ATW really gets me. I also love Like A Rock, which I don't see on the set list. Lots of other good ones are. Hubby loves Betty Lou.

We're thinking of going to see him. I may have to give up Stevie and Rod in hopes of seeing her solo and going to see Bob instead. Can't do it all ya know!

He's coming to Indy, but my concert dance card is full right now. In fact, if I remember correctly, he's playing Indy on May 6, same day as my Jackson Browne show in Peoria.

I know. Bob plays KC on the 5th. I know hubby will choose Bob over Jackson when given the choice. And I don't think I can handle back to back trips to concerts.

Okay - I think I'll do a bit of whining now. How come none of the guys that I want to see aren't coming anywhere near me. I'm harmless ... really, I am.

I was just reading up on Bob and saw he has this old video on his site, along with several others:


I was secretly hoping for a glimpse of young Glenn Frey, but knew it wouldn't happen. Darn!

Saw Bob Seger in Indianapolis Saturday night. He sang 25 songs in about 2hrs and 15 min (incl intermission). He had 7 band members, 4 horns and 3 women backup singers. Good show even if the music was too loud sometimes. The crowd was super and stood up most of the night. The security people didn't stop anyone from filming or taking pictures. Bob forgot the words during "TURN THE PAGE". Everyone was singing along with him. Then he skipped from the 1st verse to the 3rd. After singing the first line he realized what he did. The crowd kept on singing the 2nd verse. He started to laugh and said "I have never done that before. I guess that's what happens when you're 66." He kept playing the entire time he was talking and then after the sax part , finished the song. One more thing; our GUYS look great in the photos in the other post from the City of Hope show; Bob Seger-looked really tired and out of shape. The only song I wanted to hear that he left out was "Still The Same"
