Bob Seger is one of the biggest names in classic rock. Emerging from the Detroit, Mich., scene, he had his first hit album in 1968. Since then, he has sold over 75 million albums and been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Seger's hits include "We've Got Tonight," "Against the Wind" and "Like a Rock." Seger has even had a No. 1 single on the pop charts with "Shakedown" from the Beverly Hills Cop II soundtrack.
Rock and Roll Never Forgets
Bob Seger grew up with early rock, and he's carried those influences into the present. Like the late Tom Petty, he's a rock essentialist. Seger has never been into trends or deviated from the classic rock sound. His earliest influences include Little Richard and Elvis Presley. He also loved doo-wop, citing the song called "Come Go With Me" as the first single he ever bought. Seger mixed these influences with the blue-collar ethos of Detroit. Seger's classic rock sound stood out from the more art-school style prog rock and new wave sounds of the '70s and '80s. His songs resonated strongly with a huge cross-section of the working American public.
