In 1975, Bob Seger formed the Silver Bullet Band and released Beautiful Loser, featuring the near-hit “Katmandu.” Months later, Seger opened for Bachman Turner Overdrive on their two-night stand at Detroit’s Cobo Hall (I was at the first night’s show) and Seger announced the show was being recorded. The resulting double album, 1976’s Live Bullet, made Seger a star, hitting the Top 40 and remaining on the charts for over three years.

The June 1970 Cincinnati Summer Pop Festival didn't take place on a farm, as Woodstock had the year before, but rather at a ballpark in the West End. At Crosley Field, home of the Cincinnati Reds, 14 Rock bands played a daylong festival. With new bands like Grand Funk Railroad, Alice Cooper, Bob Seger, Mountain and Iggy Pop and the Stooges, the performers didn't reflect the Age of Aquarius but of what was coming for Rock music in the new decade of the 1970s.  

Animal Collective, Snoop Dogg, Bob Seger and More

Snoop Dogg has made his rep in Hip Hop by delivering his gangsta hype in an almost offhand way, perhaps a natural by-product of his blunt intake. He seems equally at ease turning out deep Dub atmospherics and textures, hardcore Hip Hop beats or smooth R&B grooves. Snoop's 10th album, 'Malice N Wonderland,' finds him doing what he's always done best: rounding up a talented slate of producers and performers and putting together a conceptual extravaganza.
