Watch Bob Seger Rock Out On ‘Letterman’

Bob Seger is back and better than ever. The Detroit rocker returned this year with a new album, Ride Out, and he’s currently on the road performing new and old music on a massive arena tour. Seger plays at New York’s famed Madison Square Garden with the J. Geils Band this Friday, but Seger got things started in the Big Apple a little on the early side with a searing performance on The Late Show With David Letterman. Seger performed the country-tinged “All Of The Roads,” a lamentation for a life lived hard and fast, and he also sat down for a chat with Dave about growing up in Detroit at the height of Motown and rock & roll. You can watch both the performance and the interview below.

It’s not all history, either: from the latest album, Ride Out, on “All of the Roads” he sings, “Every mirage has a certain appeal…Sooner or later, all of us head for home.” The man’s still writing magic.
