Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band

The man is 61. His band is probably all around the same.

And they still rock.

I went and saw them last night at Madison Square Garden. I was on the younger side of the crowd, which was mostly 40+. Couples, couples with other couples, and roving gangs of older men who are ecstatic to get out of the house and enjoy some music and beers with their friends.

And they were still dancing in their seats and isles. Smoking the weed too! Which for MSG, I was surprised it was let go to such an extent.

And Bob was running around like Mick Jagger on stage. Likes to pump his fist a lot, which I found kind of annoying by the 5th song, but eventually the energy on the stage overcame any cheesy rock star posing.

Great show. Glad I got to see him. No one else wanted to go so I got a single ticket - jackpot! I got close to the stage and a isle seat to boot. $7 a beer is expensive, but it was worth it.

Bob Seger's Greatest Hits was one of the cassette tapes I wore out when I was a kid.

He's still on tour, if you are a fan, I suggest you go. But then again I don't have to tell you that.

That old-fashioned rock and roll. It hasn't quite died out yet.
