This is a follow-up to my previous post. Just checked the Indianapolis Star website. They decided to send their entertainment reporter to do a review of Bob Seger's show. I guess the paper didn't think THE EAGLES were not worthy when they were here in October 2010. I know there were a few more people to see the Eagles. By the way, my seat was on the floor ,row 15,dead center. Could see most of the time, except when the tall guys a few rows closer stood up.

Sounds great cheryl. I so wanted to go see him in KC last week, but couldn't. I'm in wedding mode and everything else has to wait. I hope he tours again next year.

Thanks for the review Cheryl. I'm glad you enjoyed the show. But, I would have been bombed by the omission of Still the Same too. It's one of my favorties. As I said before, I'd love to see Bob, but he won't come anywhere near me. I totally missed this before and just saw PM's post with an explanation that she wrote earlier in this thread ...

Thanks for the review - too bad Seger hasn't aged as well as our guys, but few have!

There was some discussion about Bob in another thread, but I thought I'd make my comments here in his thread. Against the Wind is probably my all time favorite Bob Seger song. I love everything about it. Thought some of you may be interested in what Bob had to say about the song in the liner notes of his greatest hits CD.

Quote:
My old friend, Glenn Frey of the Eagles, had an idea that our guitarist Drew Abbott should play along with the piano solo. He and I then went out and did the background vocals together. The line "Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then" bothered me for the longest time but everyone I knew loved it so I left it in. It has since appeared in several hits by other artists, so I guess it's o.k.
I agree Bob - good idea to leave that line in cause it's one of the great ones in the song! Here is the video again.


So I thought I'd list my top 5 Seger songs ...

1. Against the Wind
2. Still the Same
3. Old Time Rock & Roll
4. We've Got Tonight
5. Night Moves

Against the Wind features Glenn on harmonies and Still the Same is alledged to have been written about him. But, honestly, these were my favorites even before I knew this. I guess it's no accident though.

Thanks for the trivia, dreamer. I didn't realize Glenn had thought of that guitar accompaniment to the piano solo. It works great.

Well, dreamer (my twin!) thanks so much for that video. That is also my favorite Bob song. It just gets me every time I hear it! I'd forgotten that Glenn did harmonies. Just another reason to love it more!

And thanks for the liner notes, too. Very cool!

Against The Wind is actually my LEAST favourite Seger album. My favourite track from it is not the title track or Fire Lake, but No Man's Land.

Top 10:

1. Night Moves
2. Shame On The Moon (Glenn)
3. Turn The Page
4. Beautiful Loser
5. Hollywood Nights
6. Katmandu
7. Mainstreet
8. Roll Me Away
9. Still The Same
10. Old Time Rock'n'Roll

Honourable mentions: Ship Of Fools, No Man's Land, Rock'n'Roll Never Forgets, Till It Shines (which Glenn plays on), Brave Strangers.

Woo Hoo!! Got tickets to see Seger on Nov. 19. Guess I'll go to Pittsburgh for the concert and just stay up there the whole week for Thanksgiving. I'm very excited. Seger was the first concert I ever went to (1979 or 80) and I'm hoping I'll remember it this time.
