It’s Bob Seger Day in Michigan, to honor Bob’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tonight.
Did my part–during today’s lunch break I picked up a CD of his Nine Tonight live album, which I’d previously bought when it was new (and vinyl). Old Time Rock and Roll is one of my favorite recordings of anything, ever. Of course I’ve been listening as I wrestled with Siebel this afternoon.
By the way: If I live to be 90, I might reconstruct my vinyl record library in other media. Or perhaps not….
Joan and I have rather different musical tastes. Joan mainly listens to classic rock radio; while I’m fairly eclectic, my preferences for bluegrass and baroque music are choices Joan barely tolerates. At this edge–Bob Seger, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, John Mellencamp–our tastes touch and we’re both comfortable. I mention this because Joan was in the audience at one of the Cobo Hall concerts taped to make the Seger album. Wish I’d been there.
