3. One is a great American song-writer and performer.

The other is Bruce Springsteen.

7. Seger's good. Springsteen's Springsteen.

Springsteen = The Beatles. Seger = Dave Clark Five.

8. Good analogy.

 

Seger wrote one great song - Against the Wind. Its poetic and iconic.

Springsteen wrote at least 30 of them.

10. Seger's a terrible lyricist.

Springsteen is just the opposite.

11. My sister's former boss used to live a couple of blocks from Bob Seger.

Said he was a super nice guy.

Too bad he can't sing. Hate his music -- turn the dial every time they play a Bob Seger song, to me, his voice is like nails on a chalkboard.

Bruce Springsteen is ok, but the man mumbles everything now that he's older.

16. See, posts 3&4 and 14&15 at odds, why I'm confused. But my heresy/ignorance

will boggle all the minds here. The reason this question presented itself to me was that last week a dude put on a series of great songs on the jukebox that I thought were SPRINGSTEEN. Another day he arrived and just sat down. As a tribute, I went to the jukebox and couldn't find SPRINGSTEEN. The songs were SEGER.


Yeah yeah, I know how ignorant I am. Thanks in advance for pointing it out. But at least give me credit for coming up with a question that has a reasonable conflict to it, as Post #6 shows.
