2nd Grade Teacher and Seger Fan honored by parents and students

4 May 07

At Castle Heights Elementary School in Price, Utah the PTA roommothers honor each teacher with many nice surprises during the annual Teacher Appreciation Week. One tradition done each year is to decorate the teachers door. Usually this is very specific or special to that teacher.

All of the 23 second grade students know how much their teacher, Vicky Tamllos, loves Bob Seger.

The room mothers decorated her door as shown below with Vicky next to it.

She has promised her students she will smile the rest of the year since her door is so special and makes her so happy!!! One students mom bought her a Seger CD in a gift basket and another, who works at the local radio station always plays Seger and dedicates it to Vicky.

Each flame has a picture of a student and on the flame of the Statue of Liberty there is a of Vicky and Bob leaning toward her.

Congrats to Vicky from SegerBob.com . . . Just one question, How are you going to transfer that to your front door at home???

This past Friday, Bob Seger and Kid Rock recorded a duet of the song "Real Mean Bottle" for Seger's upcoming album, his first of all-new material in a decade.

As reported by Uncle Joe's Daly Update for 3/8/2005:

Seger & Rock Record
This past Friday(3/4), Bob Seger and Kid Rock recorded a duet of the song "Real Mean Bottle" for Seger's upcoming album, his first of all-new material in a decade. Like most of us, Kid Rock has been a longtime Seger fan. But unlike us, Kid also got to induct Bob into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame last year! The song they recorded together was written by country star Vince Gill for his 2003 album "Next Big Thing."

Seger NOT performing as reported in the Detriot Free Press!

The paper reported that Bob would be playing a political rally, that is INCORRECT. I have found no evidence that he ever intended to play, or even endorses a political candidate.

Bob Seger makes final R & R Hall of Fame Nominee Cut

The final 18 nominees were announced this week and Bob Seger is one of them! 9/19/00

The 18 nominees for the Cleveland hall include Michael Jackson, Paul Simon, the Australian hard rockers, AC/DC; punk poet Patti Smith; rocker Bob Seger; the flamboyant cult favorites New York Dolls; Southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd; and . I. m Sorry. singer Brenda Lee. Eight acts are reappearing on the ballot after failing to win election in the past: rock bands Aerosmith, Queen and Black Sabbath; New York rocker Lou Reed; jazz-rockers Steely Dan; doo-wop favorites The Flamingoes; soul performer Solomon Burke; and . La Bamba. singer Ritchie Valens. Musicians are eligible for nomination to the hall 25 years after the release of their first recording. Ballots have been mailed to artists, producers, journalists and music industry executives who decide on the inductees. An induction banquet is generally held each March.

I have always felt a part of the credit should go to long time members of the Silver Bullet Band and it would be nice if they were included as well.
However, I understand that in order to be considered, it must be 25 years from when your first album is released. Although Bob meets this, the Silver Bullet Band falls short by one year.

Isiah & friends

Potpourri of celebrities gather to golf, gaggle, and support Thomas' charity event

DETROIT -- It's not every day you see Michigan celebrities John Engler, Bob Seger and Al Kaline standing together with Hollywood superstar Samuel L. Jackson looking on from the side. But then again, it's not every day you get to play golf on sopping wet grass in the fog. But that was the scene Monday at the Detroit Golf Club as a diverse array of personalities gathered to help The Isiah Thomas Foundation raise money for Metro Detroit youth organizations by way of the foundation's second annual celebrity golf classic.

Rocker Bob Seger was one of the first to show up at the course, although he passed on breakfast and the gym bag filled with goodies all celebrities were given. "Don't want a bag, got tons of bags," he told volunteers as he took his putter directly to the putting green and started practicing. Sporting a gray bear look, Seger's enthusiasm for golf was apparent. "See Tiger yesterday?" he asked. "He won another one, won another one." When photographers asked if they could shoot him putting he laughed and said, "Sure. I'll move the ball closer, though."


9 July 2000

In the 1st epside of "Freaks and Geeks" run in the marathon on NBC last night (8 July 00), the creator and executive producer, Paul Feig, chose the Beautiful Loser version of "Katmandu" and "You'll Accompany Me" from Against the Wind for two of the scenes in the show. Paul and I have been email buddies for the past 5 years and he was born and raised in Michigan on Silver Bullet Band tunes. Good choices Paul!


Punch has Digitally Remastered both Live Bullet and Night Moves. They are now available in 2 forms. Regular CD and a Limited Collector's Edition with the original Album Packaging. These collectors editions do not come in the plastic CD jewl case, but cardboard replicas of the album jackets. Be careful if you order CDs on-line that you are getting the version you want

I bought both of these with Christmas cash given to me as a gift. They are very cool. Thanks to my favorite Bassist for signing them and getting Bob and the rest of the guys to do so as well.
