Quick, name a Bob Seger song....! And you say Old Time Rock and Roll, or We've Got the Night, or Night Moves, am I right? However, his only Number One hit was a song he wrote for the Beverly Hills Cop 2 sound-track that he hadn't intended to sing, Breakdown. His second biggest hit, a Number Two song for four weeks, is some song that I didn't even remember called Shame On The Moon.
I also did not realize that he co-wrote The Eagles' hit, Heartache Tonight.
Bob Seger was admitted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, deservedly so. He lives semi-retired in his native Michigan or in Florida, going out on tour when the urge strikes him.
Happy Birthday, Bob Seger!
