Happy Birthday to Bob Seger who turns 68 years old today (May 6th)!!! Seger is currently on tour with the Silver Bullet Band and performs on Thursday (May 9th) in Saskatoon, at the Credit Union Centre.

Bob Seger released his first single, "The Lonely One," in 1961, with the help of Max Crook, who was a member of Del Shannon's backing band. Seger spent much of the '60s writing songs for other people, and playing with a number of different bands, including the Bob Seger & The Last Heard and the Bob Seger System. But he will always be best remembered for his '70s and '80s Silver Bullet Band classics "Against The Wind," "Night Moves," "Mainstreet," "Turn The Page," "Katmandu," "Old Time Rock & Roll," "Rock And Roll Never Forgets," "We've Got Tonight," "Still The Same," and "Shakedown," among others. Seger -- an old friend of Glenn Frey's -- also co-wrote the Eagles' final chart-topper to date, 1980's "Heartache Tonight."
