Bob Seger – Live In Buffalo [VIDEO]
So many incredible rockers have come from the great state of Michigan: Glenn Frey of the Eagles, Grand Funk Railroad, Ted Nugent, Kid Rock, Anthony Kiedis and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chil Peppers, Iggy Pop, The Romantics, Suzi Quatro, The Verve Pipe, Uncle Kracker, Del Shannon, Alice Cooper, Mitch Ryder and Marshall Crenshaw to name a few.
My favorite rocker from Michigan is Bob Seger. Bob was born in Dearborn and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He had some limited regional success in the music business in the late 1960’s and almost quit the business twice because of his lack of success. Bob used to visit Buffalo frequently in the late 60’s, playing a club called Gilligan’s and sleeping in his station wagon to save money on a hotel bill.
Finally in 1977, he was able to realize enormous national success with the release of the mega-hit, “Night Moves”. After this song hit the charts, it seemed like Bob Seger could do no wrong. Everything he did after that turned to Gold and Platinum. Bob brought his tour in Buffalo last year and here is a video clip from the HSBC Arena in downtown Buffalo.
