Bob Seger: Beautiful Loser
Ken Barnes, Rolling Stone, 5 June 1975
BOB SEGER is a superb songwriter and Midwestern rocker who's been ignored for far too long. He had a hit, 'Ramblin' Gamblin' Man' in 1968, but superior followup singles went unheard. The dramatic 'East Side Story' (his first regional hit), the frighteningly intense 'Lookin' Back' and the most passionate, personalized antiwar song of the Sixties, '2+2', should have been part of everyone's radio heritage.
