Tuesday To-Do: Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band

Sorry, Mick. This is what rock dudes should look like.

BOB SEGER & THE SILVER BULLET BAND
7:30 p.m., Verizon Arena. $65

"Wait, wait, wait: Bob Seger did more than that Martina McBride duo from 'Hope Floats'?!"
That's right!

"He did more than 'Shakedown,' the hit single from the soundtrack of yuk-a-minute Eddie Murphy action-comedy 'Beverly Hills Cop 2'?!"
Yeah, dummy! You know: Bob Seger!

"The guy who provided an inspirational anthem for JoBeth Williams in 1984's 'Teachers'?"
Yeah! The very one!

You know, the more Bob Seger you listen to, the more you end up liking him. This week, after saving a Bob CD from a used bin for this blurb, I realized why his "Greatest Hits" is the best-selling catalog album of the 2000s, selling more than even The Beatles' "1." Everyone knows "Night Moves," "Turn the Page," "Old Time Rock & Roll" and "Against the Wind" by heart. But rediscovering other greats like "Roll Me Away" and "Hollywood Nights" — that is, the ones that haven't been shoved down our collective throats for 30 years by Chevy — is another reminder for us cocky youngsters that, yeah, our parents are still right about these things. Folks who were around for Seger Fever already know why this one is a To-Do.
