    I sure hope not.

    I downloaded the Rock and Roll Never Forgets album from Amazon for like 7 bucks, and it's in constant play now.

    I always had a few Seger songs, but as I get older, I sure do like em' more and more. The lyrics and the band, even live, were pretty darn awesome, IMO.

    I've been worrying about that a lot lately, also.

    His music always spoke to me more that Springsteen's stuff I can tell you that much.

    I do enjoy Segers music a great deal. He has a great voice.

    "Old Time Rock-n-Roll" has been played so many gajillion times since it was recorded, that I hope to God I never hear that man's voice for the rest of my life.

    The radio does beat a few of his songs to death, for what reasons I'm not wise enough to know.. My favorite song takes me back to a simpler time as a child riding in my Dad's truck going down two-lane back roads with trees tall on both sides.. Many of his tunes had great lyrics like "Roll Me Away" and this one is lyrically just as good...

    Don't know about under appreciated but I've been a Bob Seger fan for a long time (as in decades).

    I bought his greatest hits CD on Amazon for around $3 shipped. The whole CD is awesome.


    James Taylor is another favorite of mine.

    I feel that way about that specific song, but some of the other Bob Seger songs are ok.
