Live Bullet was the first album that helped make Bob Seger a household name in music in the 70’s.The landmark album was released 45 years ago today—April 12, 1976.Bob is reminiscing about the album.
‘Live Bullet’ was actually recorded on September 4th and 5th back in 1975 live in Detroit at Cobo Hall. It was also the first album featuring The Silver Bullet Band.
Seger talked about that legendary album:
"Live Bullet was very exciting, fun to do. We started the Silver Bullet Band in October of '73 and basically we played 200, 250 nights a year right up until September of '75 when we recorded Live Bullet. So, it was basically just that show that we played for two years. It was just very exciting and very heavy. [Laughs] Yeah, a lot of people love that record. They used to tell me they love to drive long distances listening to it. They'd end up going 80 or 90 though."
The album contained Seger classics like “Turn The Page,” “Katmandu” and ‘Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man” among others.
