Robert Clark Seger (born May 6, 1945) is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist and pianist. As a locally successful Detroit-area artist, he performed and recorded as Bob Seger and the Last Heard and Bob Seger System throughout the 1960s, breaking through with his first national hit and album in 1968. By the early 1970s, he had dropped the 'System' from his recordings and continued to strive for broader success with various other bands. A roots rocker with a classic raspy, shouting voice, Seger wrote and recorded songs that deal with love, women, and blue-collar themes and is an example of a heartland rock artist.

Peel admitted liking Bob Seger in the 70's and when reviewing one of his singles in the NME Singles Reviews, he mentioned having a tour jacket that he gave to his mother saying that if members of the public sees a woman in her 70s walking round Notting Hill in a Bob Seger tour jacket, that's almost certainly my mum. He also wrote a foreword to The Great Rock Discography jokingly stating that he looked at the Bob Seger section hoping that they would mention his mother wearing a Bob Seger tour jacket.
