I have always loved the music of BOB SEGAR simply because its real music and a lot of it was born here in my hometown MUSCLE SHOALS AL with the M.S.R.S as the sound behind the hits.I love Roger Hawkins'bad ass backbeat on "Her Strut".He has taught me how to play drums and he never even knew it.I would beat old milkjugs to all of the Bob Segar songs of the 70's and 80's.The first song I ever played in public was OLD TIME ROCK AND ROLL at the age of 15. He is the greastest drummer I have ever known personally.He is my hero,and so are you Bob Segar,simply put The GREATEST singer and songwriter of the 20th century.I have had a life long dream of getting the chance to play a set with you.It don't have to be in a crowd of people,just a few boys sitting around pickin thats all.Music is my greatist love outside of GOD and family If you ever get back to Muscle Shoals,I hope to meet you.All of the guys in the M.S.R.S. are doing great.They're STILL THE SAME.

Back in the day
Being from Michigan I had quite a few opportunities to see Bob back in the day. One of the concerts was a hundred or so people at a roller rink in the little town of Hastings Michigan. I think it was only a buck or two. Back then his back up band and sound equipment weren't up to the standards of later years but I loved his songs. In his bio it doesn't mention his first "hit" that brought my attention to him. It was "Heavy Music" with his band Bob Segar and the Last Herd. Later he also had a band The Bob Seger System with great rocker songs like "Ivory"
