Seger, Cobo Arena, Detroit, 1972, and Hall Of Fame, 2004
His first album since 1995's IT'S A MYSTERY and the first tour since he sold over a million seats in 1996! The new album FACE THE PROMISE is said to contain 11 new original songs, plus a killer cover of Vince Gill's Real Mean Bottle with Kid Rock. EMI has pushed back the release date at least 6 times, mostly because Seger is such a production perfectionist. But the Flint Journal reports that Seger's manager is booking a 21 city tour starting Sept. 16, so the Sept. 12 release date should be set in stone this time!
Gotta check Alto Reed's site (the Silver Bullets saxaphonist). I'll know its official when Alto starts talking about it.
The music I did complain about: Billy Joel (Mom once played "A Matter of Trust" 33 TIMES in a SINGLE DAY), Def Leppard in the early '90s, and .... you guessed it.... Neil Diamond.
