Bob Seger takes great pride in his songwriting, which makes Thursday’s honor all the more special to him.
The 67-year-old will perform the song “Turn The Page” with 5 Silver Bullet members in an event that will not be televised.
Each inductee gets to play 1 song at the ceremony. “Turn The Page” was not Seger’s first choice, according to the Detroit Free Press.
If it were left for him to decide, Seger would have chose “Hollywood Nights,” but event producer Phil Ramone told him that the New York’s Marriot Marquis ballroom isn’t fit to host his full band plus backup singers.
The aging rocker is showing no signs of slowing down.
Seger joined John Fogerty on an updated version of “Who’ll Stop The Rain” for the former Creedence star’s upcoming duets CD. He’s nearly finished with his own album, which has to be named, and is shooting for a fall release. Seger is also contemplating his first overseas tour in more than 30 years.
