Bob Seger Details New Album Schedule, 2012 Tour Plans and His Songwriting Methods
Bob Seger has announced plans to release a new studio album, and to support that record with a tour. "I will write from January 1 through March 31. I will finish the next record and right now, yes, I will tour with the next record," Seger tells Ultimate Classic Rock.
Seger, who has sold more than 50 million albums, with 11 platinum and seven multi-platinum titles, also revealed what convinced him to release a studio album for the first time since 'Face the Promise' in 1996.
"It just comes and goes. I think I picked [the writing bug] up about a year and a half ago and started writing songs again slowly and surely. Then I said I 'Yeah, I want to do one more.' I have written a couple of songs that I really, really, really, really like and that was kind of the driving thing. I want people to hear them!"
Just before starting the next leg of his tour behind his Nov. 21 release 'Ultimate Hits: Rock And Roll Never Forgets,' Seger gave a wide-ranging press conference where he answered a host of questions about his music, his friends, and what the future holds for him musically. Here are some of the high points:
Tell us about some of the new songs you've written for the upcoming album.
One is called 'Ride Out.' It covers an awful lot of territory. It might be the cover song, it covers so many [topics you almost] have to hear it. There are an awful lot of lyrics pinched into a small area. Line to line it goes into different subjects and I really like it. I am trying to write stuff that is different. I am a big science fan. I read a lot of science and 'Wonderland' has a lot of science in it. I don't know. They are hard to describe....We are living in a wonderland age of science. I just read in the December [issue of] 'Astronomy' that water might be flowing in Mars....It's a wonderland we are living in right now.
How has your songwriting evolved over the years?
Well, I still do it the same way. I occasionally come up with a title I really like but more likely I write more...[by playing] and then singing something, a line or a verse, a line of a B section, a line of a chorus. The line that I end up singing is related to the music that I'm playing, if that makes any sense, and I go from there and try to figure out where I'm going with it. I will do about 40 minutes in a row and then take a half hour off and then do 40 minutes and then take a half hour off, and then do 40 minutes and then take an hour break and then go back and sing what I did. I mumble stuff and then occasionally sing a line. 99 times out of 100, [that's what I do].
When you wrote 'Turn the Page' did you have any idea it would become an anthem for every other road warrior out there?
No, I didn't. I thought it was a little folk song that was kind of personal.
When you sing [your classic] songs do you still connect with the emotions that originally inspired those songs or are there new emotions?
I still connect with original emotions. 'Night Moves' was written about 1961 or 1962 when I was in high school and it was about what my friends and I did in that period.
Is there a reason you always seem to tour this time of the year?
It's a very simple answer. I can only get my drummer [Don Brewer] in the winter. He plays with Grand Funk [Railroad] in the summer. This is his sixth tour with us.
Many rockers say that as they age it's physically difficult to sing their classic songs. Do you feel that way?
Well 'Turn the Page' I sing in the same key. Of course, a lot of them I did in the '70s and I sang a lot higher so I can't sing them that way. I will take half a step [or a step] down.
Is there a rumor that you want to set the record straight about?
The most famous rumor for me is that I had throat cancer. I never had throat cancer...I don't know why that started...The way I sing, probably.
There's been a buzz that you will collaborate on a musical project with Kid Rock. Is that true?
I haven't talked to him [about that] yet. When I talk to him I will see. I don't know.
After all these years of touring, is there a song that you still look forward to performing night after night?
I think Don Brewer would agree with me that our favorite is 'Hollywood Nights.' It's just a train and we look forward to that every night.
You're on tour right now and you mentioned you've been on tour [about] 50 years total. What satisfaction do you get out of it now?
I really enjoy being with the people I play with. I enjoy their company. I love the crew, the band, we just move through the country like an army. I always feel very grateful to be up there. There aren't any bad nights anymore unless I'm singing bad but then the band will carry me. And if they're playing bad I will carry them. It's all a team effort.

Concert Review: Bob Seger digs deep for hits at Jacksonville show
When Bob Seger sang "just take those old records off the shelf" during Tuesday night's concert at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena, he wasn't kidding.
Of the 21 songs he played during the two-hour set, just one was recorded after 1982 - and that one is a cover of a 1955 Little Richard tune.
Not that it really mattered. Seger has a songbook most performers would kill for and no one in Tuesday night's audience was complaining. Seger's songs, after all, are part of the soundtrack of their lives.

This was an old-school rock show. No giant video screens, no backup dancers, no laser light show. Just good old Bob Seger rock 'n' roll that's as comfortable as an old pair of jeans.
Seger, 66, doesn't move on stage the way he used to and his howl, one of the greatest in rock music, has lost a little of its ferocity. But he can still bring it and on some songs ("Betty Lou's Gettin' Out Tonight," "Sunspot Baby," "Night Moves"), his vocals were spot on.
The Silver Bullet Band, some of whom have been playing with Seger for 40 years, were sharp and polished. Saxman Alto Reed, in particular, seemed to be having a blast on stage, duckwalking during "Katmandu" and soaking up the spotlight during the mournful opening to "Turn the Page."
The band is filled with old pros. Drummer Don Brewer and pianist Craig Frost were longtime members of Grand Funk Railroad, and backup singer Shaun Murphy spent more than a decade in Little Feat.
But most of the heavy lifting was left to guitarist Kenny Greenberg, who is new to the Silver Bullet Band but has done lots of Nashville session work. He played most of the solos pretty much note-for-note as they sounded on the records, but cut loose a couple of times to bring his own style to the show, notably on "Katmandu" and "Travelin' Man." His guitar seemed buried in the sound mix on some songs, though, and was overpowered too often by the four-piece Motor City Horns.
It's hard to find fault with the show, though. Seger, who has been off the road for years, seems rejuvenated and is talking about a new album and another tour later this year. Go ahead and take those old records off the shelf, Bob; we'll listen to them with you.
