BOB SEGER: No Silver Bullets
He has recorded his new album with session musicians instead of the Silver Bullet Band.
From 1976 to 1995, Bob Seger recorded seven studio albums with his Silver Bullet Band. But that stopped with his 2006 album, Face the Promise, and continues with its follow-up, Ride Out, released earlier this week.
While he still tours with the Silver Bullets, Seger says he chooses to record with session musicians in Nashville because it “takes a long time for a road band to get a good sound in the studio and I have just reached a point where I want to get it done quick.”
Seger and the Silver Bullet Band will make an appearance on Ellen today (Thursday) and they start a U.S. tour next month with dates into March.
