Bob Seger Loves Halloween but Not Dressing Up

Clay Patrick McBrideIt's no secret that Bob Seger likes that old time rock 'n' roll, but did you know that he's also a big fan of Halloween?  The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer tells ABC News Radio that he and his family enjoy getting together to celebrate the holiday with all the little trick-or-treaters who come to their house for candy.

"My wife loves Halloween, and her mother comes over and her sister and [her] kid and our kids, and we just sit at the front door and watch all the great kid costumes and the parents from the neighborhood," says the Michigan rocker.  "It's a fun time."

While Seger enjoys seeing other people dress up for Halloween, he admits that he doesn't like wearing costumes himself.

I'm the only one [in my family]," he points out.  "I reserve the right, being the paterfamilias or whatever you want to call it."

Seger adds that if there's a situation where he feels he has to wear a costume, such as a Halloween party, he generally won't put a lot of effort or creativity into his outfit.

"I'll dress up in something I'll really feel good in, like my motorcycle stuff," he explains, laughing.  "I'll say, 'I'm a motorcycle guy.'  That's what I go as.  [I have] no imagination in that regard."

Bob's new studio album, Ride Out, was released on October 14, and last week debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on Billboard's Rock Albums chart.  This week, the record dropped, respectively, to #14 and #2 on the tallies.
