Marty Duda's artist of the week: Bob Seger

From Nine To Noon, 11:05 am on 3 December 2014

Bob Seger has made a name for himself as a blue-collar, hard-hitting rocker with a sensitive side. A product of the Detroit rock scene of the 1960s that spawned The MC5, The Stooges and The Rationals. Bob Seger began releasing records in 1966, but his big breakthrough didn't come until a decade later when his live double album, 'Live Bullet', became a staple on American album-rock radio stations. From there his popularity soared thanks to albums like 'Night Moves', 'Against The Wind' and 'Nine Tonight' and heartland rockers like 'Old Time Rock & Roll', 'Hollywood Nights' and 'Her Strut'. Bob Seger has just released a new album, 'Ride Out', his first in eight years. He and his venerable Silver Bullet Band are back on the road, touring until at least next February.
