Before Bob Seger experienced massive mainstream success in the late-1970s and early 1980s, he was a local musician in Detroit, Michigan--playing dive bars and honing his stills as a singer/songwriter. The years he spent in this lesser-known, formative stage undoubtedly helped Seger because when he did breakthrough with his 1976 album, Night Moves, he was sure enough of his talents to deliver when it came to performing in front of crowds and recording ear-catching follow up records. Though Seger spent his dutiful time in the cultural limelight, his popularity has receded to a moderate state; but Motor City musician hasn't let his fame ebbing deter him from continuing to tour and release studio material that is constantly characteristically Seger.
