Early in the 1970s, Seger attempted to strike out on his own by touring the country with a variety of other musicians and ensembles. He founded the Silver Bullet Band in 1973.
He first gained widespread recognition with the Silver Bullet Band, particularly following the simultaneous releases of their albums “Live Bullet” and “Night Moves” in 1976. Seger has established himself as one of rock and roll’s best musicians and songwriters with hits like “Night Moves,” “Turn the Page,” and “We’ve Got Tonight.”
A year after Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band were admitted into the Michigan Rock and Roll Legends Hall of Fame, The Bob Seger System was inducted.
Are Pete and Bob Seger related?
No, Even his father, the well-known folk musician Pete Seeger (perhaps best known for the song This Land Is Your Land, This Land Is My Land).
One of the greatest American folk and protest singers of the 20th century, Pete Seger was born on May 3, 1919.
There is no blood relationship between Bob and Pete Seger. Pete, who was regarded as the pioneer of folk music, is no longer with us. The fact that they both have the same last name is a coincidence.
