Bob Seger

(Classic Rock) The latest episode of the syndicated radio show In The Studio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands celebrates the 40th anniversary of Bob Seger's breakthrough album "Night Moves." The show sent over these details:

Bob Seger had come to the plate eight times with studio albums prior to 1976. He had singled way back in 1968 with "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man", doubled into the gap with Back In '72 and Bob Seger Seven and tripled with 1975's "Beautiful Loser". But the album Night Moves released in October 1976 was a real home run that traveled out of the park and didn't come down until it landed in 2004 at the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame.

Prior to Night Moves, Seger, considered by many critics as strictly a Midwestern regional act, proved them wrong when, after a twelve year career of paying his dues, he release two records back to back, Live Bullet in April 1976, recorded in front of an enthusiastic home crowd at Detroit's Cobo Hall, followed in October of that same year with Night Moves, which Rolling Stone magazine declared as the "Best Album of the Year".

In an in-depth interview with In The Studio host Redbeard, Bob Seger shares stories about the making of this landmark album and the professional and life lessons learned getting to that point.

Bob Seger says, " I think I made it when I was ready to make it. I think a lot of it was attitude. A lot of it was writing ability, consistent writing ability. A lot of it was maturity, a lot of it was the right band."
