Beautiful Loser – Bob Seger (1975)
This American singer, songwriter, and musician built a loyal following in my native Michigan before he broke out to the national scene…First as the Bob Seger System in the late 60’s, then as a solo act and with the Silver Bullet Band during the 70’s and 80’s. He’s continued to record over the years, albeit at a slower pace since the mid-80’s. He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, and his most recent studio album came out in 2006. He launched a successful tour last year and also released a compilation spanning his 50-year career. And last month he was inducted into the Songwriter Hall of Fame. Like a rock…indeed.
