Bob Seger: ‘Live Bullet’ Album is Voted Number One in Rolling Stone Poll
First, a happy birthday to Bob Seger, who was born on May 6, 1945 in Lincoln Park, Michigan.
Last month, Rolling Stone magazine conducted a reader’s poll of the 10 Best Live Albums of the 1970s and Seger’s ‘Live Bullet’ didn’t just make the cut, it topped the list.
His concert album with the Silver Bullet Band was released in April of 1976 and made Seger a national rock star.
That album beat out other iconic records such as The Allman Brothers Band’s “At Fillmore East” (No. 2), Peter Frampton’s “Frampton Comes Alive” (No. 8) and the Who’s “Live at Leeds” (No. 9).
Last year, Seger announced that he was winding up his touring days, saying he could see himself wrapping things up roadwise by the time he’s 70 years old.
“I’ve had a wonderful, wonderful run and my audiences have just kept coming and it’s really nice, but all good things have to come to an end.”
