Seger started his musical career in the 1960s in his native Ann Arbor, Michigan, soon after playing in and around Detroit as a singer and as the leader of Bob Seger and the Last Heard, and then later the Bob Seger System. He is best known for his work with the Silver Bullet Band, a group he formed in 1974. Seger is known as a workhorse midwestern roots-rocker who dealt with blue-collar themes and toured constantly in support of his frequent album releases. As such, critics ignorant of when his career got started have dismissed him as a poor man's Bruce Springsteen, though Seger's career as a professional musician predates Springsteen's by five years. Seger's successes paved the way for other heartland rockers including John Mellencamp and the Michael Stanley Band.

Seger's early work is hard-rocking and shows the influence of fellow Michiganders Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels as well as pioneer rock-and-rollers such as Chuck Berry. Notable songs during this time were Ramblin' Gamblin' Man, "Get Out of Denver", and his classic take on life on the road, "Turn the Page". The Bob Seger System incarnation was essentially a Michigan proto-punk band not very unlike the SRC or The Frost. The Bob Seger System's song "2+2=?" is considered by some to be one of the most fiery anti-war songs ever written.

Seger achieved a commercial breakthrough with his 1976 album Night Moves which featured several hits including the highly evocative title song. Subsequently Seger had success with rockers such as "Hollywood Nights" and mellower mid-tempo ballads such as "We've Got Tonight", "Fire Lake" (recorded 1979, and featured Don Henley, Timothy B. Schmit, and Glen Frey on backing vocals) and "Against the Wind". His most recognizable songs are almost certainly "Old Time Rock & Roll" (featured in the film Risky Business) and "Like a Rock" (most familiar to many younger Americans through its association with a long-running Chevrolet ad campaign).

Someone can add information if the person who made the thread didn't do it.
But information 'must' be in the 1st post so everybody can see it.
