Just received this book and it is gorgeous! Packed full of Tom Weschler's behind the scenes photos and written with great care for proper detail. A must-have for all the legions of Seger fans out there!
The book offers a detailed, unbiased and accurate account of Seger's life and career as a true rock legend, with Tom Weschler (Bob's former road manager) providing the book's forward. Turn the Page, follows Bob from his earliest days emerging out of the Detroit music scene, just as fellow artists Kid Rock and Glenn Frey, up through, and including, his current 2019 national tour "Roll Me Away, the Final Tour."
It tracks Seger's entire music career, including the Silver Bullet Band - comparing the songs and stage shows, similar to Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, and Bruce Springsteen's E-street Band.
The book features inside stories, interviews, Bob's composing, band personnel, recording sessions, tours, and his very private personal life. Turn the Page is a "must" for any true Bob Seger fan. This is the only Bob Seger biography written to date, with over 280 pages, 24 in color with over 60 images, and 224 documented footnotes. Many of the color images are from the distant past, including very rare photos - as a poster advertising a Seger concert headlining John Lennon.
The author, Edward Sarkis Balian, Ph.D. grew up in Detroit and was in a local band at the same time as Seger; in fact, they shared the same Detroit entertainment attorney for over four decades. Balian, himself a recording musician (the George-Edwards Group), put together Turn the Page with a steady eye toward accuracy and quality, in his words "Turn the Page summarizes the brilliant and astonishing career of a true Hall of Fame composer and entertainer.

Seger's body of over 50 years of work, coupled to his love of music and an almost unbelievable tenacity, led him to well-deserved fame and fortune. A career full of major challenges - a rock'n'roll roller-coaster to be sure." Balian is donating 30% of his royalties to charity, 50% to the Seger's favorite charity, Oakland County Children's Village. Visit https://bobsegerturnthepage.com for more info.
