Whatever Happened To… Bob Seger?

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.

Whatever Happened To… Bruce Hornsby & the Range?

Browse & purchase this albumThe Way it Is – Bruce Hornsby & the Range (1986)
I was a sophomore at MSU living on 6 East Wilson with Fraser. The guys across the hall, Kirk & Mark, played this album incessantly. To me, this song was THE soundtrack of the Reagan years.
