Bob Seger did a wide-ranging interview with Gary Graff of the Oakland Press recently, touching on subjects like his new album and possible retirement.
“I’ve told Capitol (Records) I want this out at the end of August, and they said, ‘OK.’ So hopefully I can turn everything in Aug. 1 and have it come out at the end of August.”
As far as the future, the 68-year-old says that retirement has entered his mind. “I wouldn’t say I’m in the planning stages of retiring, but I’m wide open to it now, and I don’t know how much more there is to prove.
“I wouldn’t mind putting out one more record, one last swan song. That’s all I’m concerned with right now is trying to make that as good as it can be, and then we’ll look at everything else and play it by ear. I’ve had a great career, y’know? It’s been a great run. I don’t want to overstay my welcome.”
