It took two decades, Eddie Murphy and a five-year break from the Top 10 for Bob Seger to score his first, and only, No. 1 hit. On top of all that, after recording for the same company for 20 years, that hit single was on a different label -- a one-off song cut for a soundtrack album.
George Jackson, who wrote countless rock and soul songs, died on Sunday morning (April 14) at his home in Ridgeland, Miss. after a year-long bout with cancer. He was 68. Jackson is best known as the co-writer of Bob Seger's classic 'Old Time Rock and Roll.'
Flint, Michigan native Evie Branan, 79, suddenly awoke from a 5-year coma on May 7, 2011, and her first uttered words were, "I want to go to a Bob Seger concert." It's been two years since and Evie is finally getting her chance to attend that concert.
While he works toward the completion of his 17th studio album -- and first since 2006's 'Face the Promise' -- Bob Seger is also warming up for another run of tour dates that will see him back on the road with the Silver Bullet Band throughout the winter and early spring.
