And that's just what he did at the Forum and what made Seger's show so successful. With his grey hair, goatee and glasses, wearing a black-button shirt and jeans, Seger could easily be mistaken for one of his own fans. At the Forum, there were no special effects or special guests, just a solid night of "Old Time Rock and Roll" delivered with spirit and near-perfection by Seger and his crack band -- a revolving cast of 12, including Grand Funk's Don Brewer on drums, three female backup singers and a four-piece horn section -- reconfigured throughout the night to fit the need of the song at hand.

As always, a highlight of all of Seger's shows is the nightly performance of "Night Moves." We asked him to tell us the back-story to the 1976 classic, which came to define his '70s era. He told us it was pulled directly from his teen days back in Michigan: "Basically, what we'd do, we'd go out and get in a farmer's field outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan where I grew up -- I was born in Detroit, but I grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan. And there were all these farmer's fields out there, and we would just pick one at random, hoping that nobody caught us, and put our cars in a circle, and the headlights would shine in on everybody having the party, and we would dance and we would play this guy's record player -- the 45's, the stuff of the day. And the girls loved the Ronettes records -- y'know like, 'Be My Baby' and things like that, and we would dance and just go wild out in the field, and we called them 'grassers.’"

With a career spanning six decades, Seger continues to perform and record today. Seger was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 and the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2012.
