Bob Seger Quotes:
Every now and then you'll nail one that's really, really special. And that's what you live for.

Great sex is wonderful while it's happening, but who remembers great sex they had in 1983?

I can't sing as high as I used to.

I had the opportunity to be around my kids a lot. I guess I could have kept working, but I had them when I was 47. You only get to see all this stuff once. I just chose to work at home and watch them.

I like people to just bring it to the table and feel the moment. And that's why I've never done a session where I don't sing live.

I look back and realize I was a workaholic. I have to temper things. I have to watch myself. I'll start resenting things if I don't get enough time. So now I just have to have some discipline.

I never say never, because I don't want to be one of those guys.

I played everywhere on earth for 22 years-gymnasiums, cafeterias, clubs, concerts, outdoors, indoors. I played every kind of venue there was.

I really like the thing I did with Martina McBride. I had that song sitting around for a long time.

I recorded in LA for years, and I tried living there for a couple of years in the mid-'80s. I thought I would really like it.

I thought it would be really inspiring to be around Tom Petty and Jimmy Iovine and the people I knew out there and liked. But I found that they were just as busy as me. I didn't get to see them.

I want to be sure I can deliver what people expect to hear. I just don't know if I can physically do it. Or if I should.

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

I write a lot of songs people don't hear. I really just enjoy the process. I finish 'em all. I don't think there's a whole lot of difference between the bad ones and the good ones.

I write probably 80 percent of my stuff over the winter.

I'm just trying to keep things simple, and just be a little more offhand and not get so deep into things. Enjoy what you got right now, because who knows what's going to happen tomorrow.

I'm really glad I didn't have kids earlier, because I probably would have ignored them. I was so into my career. I could just go and play a ton of shows, night after night after night. I can't do that anymore.

I've never been unhappy with Capitol. Not really. They've been really good by me.

If I want to work, I can. If I want to play golf, or ride my motorcycle, I can. But the rest of it is family. Sometimes you're not really needed by your family, but you're there. And my kids like to know I'm there.

It was 22 years of work in a row, right up until 1987. Twenty-two years in a row-either on tour, writing an album, or recording an album. It wasn't until 1987 that I was able to take a breath.

It's a Mystery was my garage album. I always wanted to make a garage album-something where, the second I heard it in the studio, I used it, rather than rerecording it.

My management tells me, Don't be optimistic, because it's the young people's world now. They want to hear what they want to hear, and you're a classic rocker. I don't know if you're gonna get the play.

Radio is so fragmented, it's unbelievable.

The two hours onstage is great. But I can only play a show and then take a night off. I have to sing for two hours, and then I've gotta rest it for a night. So it's the other 46 hours that are just boring as heck.

We've got to practice three weeks, get the kinks out, then we've got to practice three weeks with the crew, and then go out for four months. It's just a huge chunk of time out of life.

You can't get a good crew and a good sound system, and a good light system if you do a small tour. If you want the best, those guys want a commitment of about 4 to 6 months. And I'd want the best people and the best stuff.

You go to LA, or you go to New York, and it's really fun to go there. But they're not grounded. Everybody is just competing all the time for the limelight. It's too much entertainment industry. There are too many choices. And it's distracting to me.
