Following the death of folk icon Pete Seeger, Twitter blew up yesterday with fans paying respect . . . to Bob Seger. Apparently, some people got the 'We Shall Overcome' songsmith confused with the 'Old Time Rock & Roll' singer, who's still very much alive.
It took two decades, Eddie Murphy and a five-year break from the Top 10 for Bob Seger to score his first, and only, No. 1 hit. On top of all that, after recording for the same company for 20 years, that hit single was on a different label -- a one-off song cut for a soundtrack album.
George Jackson, who wrote countless rock and soul songs, died on Sunday morning (April 14) at his home in Ridgeland, Miss. after a year-long bout with cancer. He was 68. Jackson is best known as the co-writer of Bob Seger's classic 'Old Time Rock and Roll.'
Flint, Michigan native Evie Branan, 79, suddenly awoke from a 5-year coma on May 7, 2011, and her first uttered words were, "I want to go to a Bob Seger concert." It's been two years since and Evie is finally getting her chance to attend that concert.
Evie Branan, the 79 year old Michigan woman whose first words after emerging from a coma that lasted five years were, "I want to go to a Bob Seger concert," got her wish and more last night (April 11) when she met the rock legend backstage.
