11. Old Time Rock And Roll
Chords

Buy Full Lesson

There is a bit of odd history to this song which appeared on the 1978 album "Stranger In Town". The intro which you hear twice was an error on the demo tape by one of the engineers at Muscle Shoals Studio in Alabama. Seger thought it was part of the song so left it in. Also, a teenager at the time by the name of Howie McDonald banged on the back door of the studio and asked the engineer if he could play on a record, so the engineer told him to go get his guitar. It was in the car as his parents waited in the parking lot. They hooked him up and he played the lead on the track.

Bob Seger claims he re-wrote the verses but left the chorus as is from the original lyrics by George Jackson, a blues musician. After playing it a few times in Europe, the band took a liking to the song which also appeared in the 1983 movie "Risky Business" starring Tom Cruise. The song peaked at #28 on the US charts.


12. Rock And Roll Never Forgets
