I'm Bob Seger

I'm Bob Seger

Want money? House? Sex? It’s time to get your life right with the Bob Seger System of Wealth, Prosperity and Sexual Seductions. Here’s what you have to do: First, buy a damn shirt.

The genre I’m Bob Seger feature covers of Seger songs (“The eternal soundtrack of success”), or songs that sound like Seger songs (“Proof of one big sandblast of cash and ass”). These songs have features like tons of nostalgia, a classic rock ‘n’ roll feel, blue-collar lyrical themes and a saloon piano.

(note: Seger shirts are sold out on esty, pre-order today at YACHTROCKDOTCOM)
