Bob has always been just a brilliant singer and songwriter. Deep beneath that rock star and that tenacious singer is a really ordinary guy, and his stories speak of everybody's experience. Everybody can relate to them. They strike that chord in people where they go, "That's exactly how I feel!"
Nickname: C-Note. "I got a modest inheritance from my father when he passed away. I had a little money -- I was not rich, but it was more than kids my name had, so I always had good equipment and they started calling me C-Note."
Seger started banging on things at an early age. My mom knew the band instructor at the junior high school, so I started playing percussion but could never read music, so I could only get to chair number two. I was a drummer for a few years in various bands, then I picked up guitar around 18. Then Eric Morgenson, a fellow Plymouthite who I played with a lot, called me and was putting a band together called Toby Wesselfox. It was a horn band and he knew I had a weakness for horns. But there was one catch; he said, "I want you to play bass." "I don't play bass." "Well, you play guitar, so you can play bass. You do this for me and I'll let you play guitar on three or four songs during the night." So I did that.
My family didn't have a lot of money, so I went to Schoolcraft College and was headed to probably a business career of some sort. Then I got the calling, as they say, and I liked music better.
Favorite Seger Song: There's a lot that I like, but I think one of the most fun to play, and I never really get tired of playing it or hearing it, is "Hollywood Nights." It's jsut a very upbeat, pedal-to-the-metal song. It really gets you going and revs you up. (Excerps from Bob Seger's Official Website)
