BIOGRAPHY

Bob Seger was bornon 6 May 1945 in Lincoln Park, Michigan, American, is American singer-songwriter. Robert Clark “Bob” Seger is a rock and roll musician best known for his album ‘Night Moves’. Initially a Detroit based singer and songwriter, he was a huge local success even before entering the national music scene in the U.S. The raspy voiced singer is also very talented at playing the guitar and piano. Primarily a roots rocker, his music deals with folk, blues, country music and the subsequent creation of sub-genres like country rock and southern rock. He was exposed to music from an early age as his father used to play several musical instruments and he was also inspired by musicians Little Richard and Elvis Presley. Seger’s songs are classical examples of heartland rock and focus on topics like love, women, issues of working class, etc. with which the common people could easily connect. His fame began to peak during the decades of 1970s and 1980s when heartland rock became one of the most popular rock genres in the U.S. His straightforward musical style combined with a concern for social causes endeared him to millions of U.S. citizens and made him a hugely popular rock star of his times.
