“Turn The Page” Reveals The Sad But True Life Of A Rockstar, As Told By Bob Seger
Here I Am, On The Road Again…
When people think of being a rockstar, it’s easy to dream of traveling to far away places and getting to do awesome things. Bob Seger’s ‘Turn The Page’ highlights another part of stardom that most people don’t think about – the loneliness and aggravation of going from city to city and constantly being far away from the things and people that you call home.
If you ever wondered what loneliness sounds like…
Seger’s ‘Turn the Page’ features a mournful mellotron and a distinctive saxophone part played by Alto Reed. During recording, Reed was told: “It’s 3 a.m. You’re under a streetlamp. There’s a light mist coming down. You’re all by yourself. Show me what that sounds like.”
There’s a reason this song has stood the test of time; because of Bob Seger’s outstanding songwriting abilities, to this day ‘Turn the Page’ is cited as a favorite of many musicians and bands and has been covered by everyone from Waylon Jennings to Metallica. Classic rock stations all over the world keep this classic in regular rotation, much to our delight!
