FEATURED ARTICLE: Bob Seger
Robert Clark "Bob" Seger (b. May 6, 1945) is a popular American rock musician, singer-songwriter, guitarist, and pianist. Seger started as a locally popular Detroit-area artist and performed and recorded under the names "Bob Seger and the Last Heard" and "The Bob Seger System" during the 1960s. Seger then relocated to Detroit and formed "The Silver Bullet Band" in 1973. He has co-written and performed many hits such as his extremely popular signature song "Old Time Rock n' Roll" and major hits such as "Night Moves" and "Against the Wind". He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004. Seger has had a career spanning five decades and still currently performs, with his most recent tour taking place in 2010.
Seger was born in Detroit in Henry Ford Hospital on May 6, 1945. He was raised as a small child in Dearborn, Michigan. Seger and his family moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan when Seger was six years old. Seger's father was a musician and Ford plant worker. Seger's father abandoned the family and moved to California in 1955. Seger graduated from Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor in 1963. He ran track and field. Seger said his early musical influences were Little Richard, James Brown, and Elvis Presley.
Seger started out in a three-piece band called The Decibels with two classmates from his Ann Arbor high school in 1961. They recorded "The Lonely One" which was Seger's first original song and it was aired on an Ann Arbor radio station. After the Decibels disbanded, Seger joined The Town Criers, singing lead vocals. The band began covering popular songs and started to gain popularity. After the Town Criers gained popularity, Seger met a man named Doug Brown with a band called the Omens. Seger joined the band. Though Brown was the primary lead singer, Seger would take the lead on some of their cover versions of songs. This was when Seger would first appear on an officially released recording, "TGIF", backed with "First Girl".
Weekly Bible Passage: Matthew 5:20-37
20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:
32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:
34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:
35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.
37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
