Seger's popularity peaked in the early 1980s with "Against the Wind," among others, before a long, fallow period in the 1990s.

Seger's popularity peaked in the early 1980s with "Against the Wind," among others, before a long, fallow period in the 1990s. However, as one of his most popular songs dictated, rock-n-roll never forgets, and Seger rebounded in the 21st century with the well-received Face the Promise (2006). A definitive artist of 1970s and 1980s rock, Bob Seger remained one of the genre's hardest working and most successful players for over a half-century.
