This year, Macomb County Seger tribute band "Lookin' Back" wanted to celebrate Bob Seger Day with a Shelby Township show at the gorgeous Palazzo Grande Banquet Center. To drum up interest, they turned to radio advertising.
Apparently this pissed Seger off.
He got his lawyers involved and Lookin' Back was told that the ads were violating the lucrative Seger trademark. If they didn't stop, action would be taken.
THIS IS UN-SEGER LIKE AND QUITE FRANKLY UNACCEPTABLE
Please sign this petition if you agree: http://www.petitiononline.com/segerday/petition.html.
Once 1000 people agree I will notify Bob Seger of the outcome.
Not sure if you agree? Then read on:
I seriously didn't want to slag Bob Seger on this, the 66th Bob Seger day, but Lookin' Back brings quite a bit to the table.
God dammit Bob Seger, you have got to relax for these reasons:
- Holy crap Lookin' Back are awesome. I can't link to their website enough, please for the love of god check it out here.
- The performance includes a futuristitc laser light show.
