Even though you haven’t asked, and I never thought of doing it, I’ll be doing Frankie Avalon Part Two, so that way you can ask me, “When am I going to post it?”. The answer will be, I’m not sure yet, It might be after I finish it.

As I sit, eating may pickle and mustard ice cream salad, mI realist that I haven’t done Adam Ant Part Three, yet. I know what you’re thinking, that I should have done it a year ago, so I would be doing Part Four. Well I thought of that, and reject it, for I was busy doing nothing, and I wanted to finish it, first so I can concentrate on my ice Crean salad dinner, for today.

Bob Seger Part Five

It’s been awhile since I done one of his, but in this blog, Bob Seger Part Five, I will complete this series and move on with him on another, in the near future. So I might as well start, to finish, so you can finish reading, what I started.

Later years: 1988 Present

Bob Seger‘s next record was 1991‘s The Fire Inside, at a time when glam metal, grunge and alternative rock were taking the center. His new music found little exposure on radio or elsewhere. The very same was true of 1995‘s It‘s a Mystery, although the album was certified gold (500,000 copies sold). Nevertheless, in 1994, Seger released Greatest Hits; the compilation album was his biggest-ever record in terms of sales, selling almost ten million cop...
