|Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band have played more Rock Super Bowls in Orlando than any other
band. They were 2nd on the Bill at Rock Super Bowl I with Headliners Fleetwood Mac in 1977.
The Band exploded with numerous hit singles and became headliners at Rock Super Bowl IV in 1978.
Now in 1980 Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band Headlined Rock Super Bowl VIII.
Seger released Against the Wind (with ex-Grand Funk Railroad member Craig Frost replacing Robyn
Robbins on keyboards) and it became his first and only #1 album on the Billboard album chart. The first
single "Fire Lake" featured Eagles Don Henley, Timothy B. Schmit, and Glenn Frey on backing vocals and
Muscle Shoals guitarist, Pete Carr on 12-string acoustic guitar.
Florida rockers Molly Hatchet were 2nd on the bill and touring to promote the album "Beatin’ the Odds".
This is the first album with new vocalist Jimmy Farrar who replaced lead singer Danny Joe Brown as he was
kicked out of the band for always being way too stoned to sing.
UFO was on tour with out Michael Schenker as UFO rehired Paul "Tonka" Chapman on guitar. UFO
released their next LP, No Place To Run in January, 1980 and was produced by the former Beatles
producer George Martin but No Place To Run had no where to go and failed to match up to the success
of its predecessors, though it fractionally missed the UK Top 10.
Long Way to the Top is the third release by North Carolina music group Nantucket. The album is a
tribute to AC/DC lead singer Bon Scott, who died in 1980 and features a version of their 1975 classic " It's
A Long Way To The Top If You Wanna Rock & Roll ". This move landed Nantucket a spot with AC/DC on
their 1980 Back in Black tour for the entire summer.
Detroit Rockers The Rockets were on tour promoting their self titled album "Rockets" and getting air
time with their cover of the Fleetwood Mac song "Oh Well".
