  • Seger: "I wanted to just write an honest appraisal of where I was at that moment in time. I was 31 years old and I was damn glad to be here."
  • Seger wrote this after hearing about one of his high school reunions. He wanted to write a song for middle-aged people to remember their youth.
  • Seger was concerned that fans his own age were not coming to his concerts. This was meant to remind members of his generation that they could still enjoy rock and roll.

  • Jennifer from La Crescenta , ArThis song reminds me of H.S. graduation in 1977. I've danced to this song at many happy occasions and it's in my ipod. The most recent was at my daughters wedding reception on the dance floor with my sisters who are in their 50's. It's like we've stepped into the fountain of youth!
  • Lalah from Wasilla, AkC-c-c-come back baby; rock and roll never forgets. When I was a kid I wondered why rock and roll wasn't going to forgive and what had been done to it.
  • Mike from Brooklyn, NyMy dad also loves this song. "Chuck's Children" refers to Chuck Berry. All the current rockers were out there playin his licks.
  • Stefanie Magura from Rock Hill, ScNo one's commented yet? i'm suprised! Anywa great song! My dad and I often go out and listen to music, so this definitely applies to him. I'm not going to give his age away, but he was a teenager when the Beatles were popular.
