    bob seger, one of my faves in the '70s. brings our BRUCE!!! last night at madison square garden for this classic -- a personal fave 'cause we almost brought down the chandeliers when our families and friends tore up the dance floor at our wedding celebration when the dj spun this one: http://www.rollingstone.com/videos/new-and-hot/bruce-springsteen-and-bob-seger-perform-old-time-rock-roll-in-nyc-20111202

    hope it's not a db. i havent been on the board all day...
  2. That was great. Big Seger fan but he's aged to look like some TV character I just can't put my finger on.

    could it be cartoon character on tv? that struck me too.
  4. Not a cartoon character and not a thinner Rob Ryan either. Damn this is bugging me.

    Damn, that was awesome. I have got to go see Bruce. Wouldn't mind seeing Seeger, either. That was right up my alley.

    Good stuff. Might be the first time I've seen Bruce on stage not performing like it was his last song ever, but he wasn't upstaging Seger, which was classy.

    As for Seger...yeah, I'd rather think of him 30 years ago. Can't pin down that look exactly but it's definitely Grandpa rocker. Headbands!

    Not a cartoon character, but someone from those Freedom Rock infomercials. ;D

    I used to spend a lot of time listening to Seger. Really like his music. Saw him in concert in 1983 at the Hollywood Sportsatorium (??) in Florida. I had enough beer in me that when he sang "Hollywood Nights" and everybody started cheering, I started shouting: "He's talking about MY Hollywood, not this fucking place!!"
  11. I think I figured it out - Bob Seger in that video looks like the guy playing Santa in the Best Buy commercials
