Bob Seger Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Robert Clark Seger, was born on 6 May 1945 in Lincoln Park, Michigan USA. Bob is a  popular American instrumentalist and rock singer, probably best known for his performances with his Silver Bullet Band which he founded in the early 1970s.

So just how rich is Bob Seger? Sources have estimated that Bob has a net worth of $45 million,  such wealth having been accumulated during his long career in the music industry, including song-writing.

Bob Seger Net Worth $45 Million

Bob Seger was familiar with music from childhood – his father played several musical instruments, and Bob was encouraged to learn to play. However, when Bob was 10 years old his father left the family, which was a difficult time financially for the rest of the family. Bob graduated from Pioneer High School in 1963, and in the early 1960s became a popular musician in the Detroit area, where he was performing with many other rock bands at the beginning of his career : The Decibels, The Town Criers, Doug Brown, The Omens.

Bob Seger changed his  stage name a couple of times, firstly forming as Bob Seger and the Last Heard, as well as the Bob Seger System, and then most successfully as  The Silver Bullet Band since 1973, releasing an album entitled Live Bullet. From this early beginning, Bob Seger has released 16 studio albums, two live albums and four compilation albums. To mention just a few of them, Bob released Mongrel (1970), Back In `72 (1973), Beautiful Loser (1975), Nine Tonight (1981), The Distance (1982), Face the Promise (2006), and Ultimate Hits: Rock and Roll Never Forgets (2011). The revenues from all these albums constitute the biggest part of Bob Seger’s net worth.

Bob Seger has been adding  money to his net worth from songwriting, too. Noticably all his lyrics are about love and women, including his many popular songs such as Shakedown, Against the Wind, We`ve Got Tonight, Turn the Page, Night Moves, and Old Time Rock ‘n Roll.  Shakedown was actually composed for “Beverly Hills Cop II”, an action comedy film directed by Tony Scott. Bob also wrote the song Like a Rock, as well as contributed to the American rock band The Eagles` hit Heartache Tonight. Such popularity of the songs supports the great revenues comprising Bob Seger’s net worth.

In 2004 Seger was inducted into the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2012 into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Bob Seger’s net worth also increased when he collaborated with John Fogerty, and together they performed Who`ll Stop the Rain, a song from Fogerty`s album Wrote a Song for Everyone which was released in 2013.

As regards his personal life, Bob has an elder brother George. Bob Seger was in a lengthy relationship with Jan Dinsdale from 1972 until 1983. From 1987 to 1988 he was married to Annette Sinclair. Bob has been married to Nita since 1993: together the couple has two children, named Samantha and Cole. Currently, Seger resides in the Detroit suburb of Orchard Lake Village.

Looks like we don't have Bob Seger salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1Lives mainly at his home in Orchard Lake Village, Michigan.
2Inducted into the American Songwriters Hall of Fame on June 15, 2012.
3Has said that the line "hummin' a song from 1962" in his song "Night Moves" was about The Ronettes hit song "Be My Baby". Unfortunately, he got the year wrong--"Be My Baby" did not come out until 1963.
4Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 1750 Vine Street in Hollywood, California.
5His album "Face the Promise", released in September 2006, sold over 400,000 copies in its first 45 days of release.
6Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 15, 2004. Fellow Detroiter Kid Rock gave the induction speech.
7To preserve his voice for the stage, he does not talk in the hours immediately before and immediately after concerts.
8Signed to Capitol Records in 1968, as the Bob Seger System.
9Resumed recording and touring in 2006, after taking an 11-year hiatus to raise his children.
10Lived in Dearborn, Michigan, until age six, when his family moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan.
11Has worked with his manager, Punch Andrews, for over 40 years.
12Has two children: Cole David Seger (born 1992) and Samantha Seger (born 1995).
13Attended and graduated from Arbor High School (now called Pioneer High School) in Ann Arbor, Michigan (1963).
14For a while, he was confused with singer Bruce Springsteen, because their singing voices are very similar, and both utilized saxophone players in their songs.
15His song, "Old Time Rock and Roll", was used to great effect in a classic scene in the film Risky Business (1983).
16A smooth-voiced vocalist from Detroit, Seger is also an accomplished songwriter. He is responsible for many hit rock songs including: "Night Moves", "Against the Wind", "Old Time Rock and Roll" and "Shakedown". He also co-wrote "Heartache Tonight" which was a #1 hit single for The Eagles. Bob did not actually write "Old Time Rock and Roll". The writing credits for it go to George Jackson and Tom Jones III. Bob did change several of the lyrics but decided against taking songwriting credit. Which later, he said he wish he had added his name so he could have gotten the royalties for the publishing rights.

#Quote
1I think rock will last; it's proved its legs. But how the performers will be remembered, that's another thing.
2I was a poor kid. It was a disappointment to grow up and realize there really weren't families like on The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet (1952). That in middle-class families, the guy went off to the bar and got drunk and smashed up the car just like in poor families.

#Trademark
1Raspy shouting vocals
