Bob Seger

8 p.m. Friday, December 9. Scottrade Center, 1401 Clark Avenue.

He's been a Michigan garage-band pioneer, an AM rock god and a Chevy pitchman, but Bob Seger is now, simply, a survivor. A new record is rumored to come out next year. Even if it doesn't, the man has earned a victory lap after 50 years in the rock & roll business. His live shows inspire Springsteen levels of devotion, and the traits that those two men share — a blue-collar work ethic, piano-driven rock, plenty of raspy growling — have long since changed from a young man's angst to an old man's memory. But if "Night Moves" has taught us anything, it's that those memories hold all of our secrets and desires.

Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band’s first top ten hit was 1976’s “Night Moves.” Recorded in Toronto with producer Jack Richardson, the track was a last-minute addition to an otherwise forgettable session. Rockaeology at http://bit.ly/jimE4R has the story of how a Bruce Springsteen track became the inspiration for the song’s signature changes in tempo.
