Bob Seger is still on the mend from October surgery to repair a ruptured disc in his neck. While he's feeling close to 100 percent, he isn't yet ready to reschedule the tour he had to postpone last year.
But Bob can still talk about the future, which is what he did in a just-published Rolling Stone interview. Asked about plans for a memoir, Seger says, "I think about it. I set up a computer. I got a writing desk. I got everything ready. I don't know what I'll write, I may write about me. I don't know." But if he does write a memoir, he promises he won't have a ghostwriter.
As for a documentary about his life and career along the lines of History of The Eagles, Seger says, "The problem with that is that we don't have any film. The Eagles were smart and they made lots of film. We have some, but the lights weren't very good and it looks cruddy."
And what about his early albums, which have long been out of print -- would he like to see them reissued? He says Jack White constantly asks him about them, even going so far as to say he'd remix them all for free. Seger says he'd pay White, it's just that he's "always on to the next thing and then the next tour" and doesn't have the time to go back there just yet. He says that maybe when he retires he'll "get serious about it."
