Alan Thicke is why I hate Bob Seger…RIP

Posted: December 13, 2016 by jmklee in Uncategorized

News broke tonight of the passing of Alan Thicke.  Word is he had a heart attack while playing hockey with one of his sons.

Now if you have ever discussed music with me you probably know I have an unpopular opinion that Bob Seger sucks balls.  Many ask why and I always refer to one moment of 80’s pop culture.  The date was September 30, 1986, I was 12, and Growing Pains aired the episode, “Jason and the Cruisers”.  You know the one where Jason starts to feel old and Maggie decides to surprise him with a reunion of his former band The Wild Hots.  Don’t remember?  Well this will jog your memory.

I know, total crap right!  This shit actually passed as entertainment in the 80’s somehow and if it wasn’t for Bob Seger giving us the most over rated song in music history then we would not have had to watch Alan Thicke and Kirk Cameron pretend to play and sing.  Yes, I blame Bob Seger for bad 80’s TV.  Trust me, it makes sense in my head, I promise.

So there you have it, the man who was responsible for my hatred of Bob Seger has passed.  Make sure to pour some out for Jason Seaver tonight.
