Over time, he teamed up with another band led by Doug Brown, called The Omens. This new group is more successful than his previous one and Bob enjoys even more musical success in this new group.
He left The Omens to form his own band called The Last Heard with Pep Perrine, Carl Lagassa and Dan Honaker; his former bandmates. They released singles like East Side Story (1966) and Heavy Music (1967), both of which became top singles on the chart.

His major break in the music industry came with the 1976 album La nuit mouvement, Étranger en ville followed in 1978, Contre le vent (1980), La distance (1982) and Comme une roche ‘ (1986). He took a musical break in the 90s, but made a comeback with Face the Promise in 2006. Since his return, Bob Seger has already performed on stage several times.
The Michigan-born musician certainly came a long way from where he is today, though tales of his musical exploits may sound as Latin and Greek as those of the younger generation, except for those who love songs. of yesteryear.
