Biography

Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band are an American band led by Bob Seger.

The Silver Bullet Band was formed in 1974. Its original members were:
* Drew Abbott, guitar
* Charlie Allen Martin, drums
* Rick Mannassa, keyboards
* Chris Campbell, bass guitar
* Alto Reed, saxophones, flutes, acoustic guitar, keyboards and percussion.

Seger himself did all lead vocals and plays guitar and piano.

In 1975 Mannassa was replaced by Robyn Robbins on keyboards, who in 1980 was replaced by Craig Frost. Around 1977 Martin was replaced by Dave Teegarden on drums, who in 1983 was replaced by Don Brewer. In 1982 Abbott was replaced by Dawayne Bailey on guitar.

Seger has almost always used session musicians, most notably The Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, on his albums as well.

In 1974 Seger formed the Silver Bullet Band and released the album Seven (credited to Bob Seger), which contained the Detroit-area hit “Get Out of Denver”. This track that was a modest success and charted at #80 nationally.

In April 1976 Seger and the Silver Bullet Band had an even bigger breakthrough with the album Live Bullet, recorded over two nights in Detroit’s Cobo Arena in September 1975. The album stayed on the Billboard charts for 168 weeks, peaking at #34 which was Seger’s highest charting album at the time. It also contained Seger’s rendition of Tina Turner’s “Nutbush City Limits” (#69 US) as well as Seger’s own take on life on the road, “Turn the Page”, from Back in ‘72.

    Live Bullet is still rated as one of the best live albums today! (2) So many great songs for so many different moods. One of the hardest working men in rock'n'roll.

    Lmao@SupahShadow One hit wonder? Are you daft man or musically challenged or both? Bob Seger placed 6 songs in Billboard Magazines Top Ten; 12 others in BM's top 40; has 30 in the Top 100. These are just the record singles. (As of 1986 - Joel Whitburn Top Pop Singles) He may have more,that's as far as my book went, not to mention the many great albums, album cuts and 45rpm B-sides. Open mouth,insert foot statement by you.

    I'm not a huge Bob Seeger fan, but Live Bullet is one of the best live albums I've ever heard.

    hahaha someone said one hit wonder hahaha Bob Seger is one of the most underrated musicians of all time and his stuff with the Silver Bullet Band is some of his best. A Stranger in Town may be the greatest album of the 70s. Definitely helped slay disco and kept rock and roll staying strong!
