Album Notes

Why "Turn the Page"?

"Turn the Page"(TTP) actually came about as a side project for our original Southern Rock band, “The Sam Morrison Band”. We'd been playing for many biker type events and needed to add a few Southern/Classic Rock cover songs. We played a couple of Bob Seger tunes at the time and the response we got was INCREDIBLE!

People continually commented on how much I sounded like Bob Seger and it was obvious that everyone LOVED his music. No matter where we would perform we constantly got requests to do more and more Bob Seger. It became clear right away that we could fill a whole night with Bob Seger requests and still not get to everyone’s favourite! He has so many great hits songs and since he (Bob) had not toured in over 11 years, everyone missed hearing the material "Live".

Up to this point, I was unaware of the "Tribute Band" explosion that was currently underway. We happened to be playing in Las Vegas when I started to notice how many Tribute acts were playing there. As I started to dig deeper, I noticed that the most successful acts were the ones that paid tribute to artists that were no longer touring such as the Beatles, Doors, Eagles etc.

That's when the idea for "Turn the Page" began. We decided to add a Keyboard player, 2 female back-up singers and a sax player in order to fully re-create the Bob Seger Live Experience and see what would happen. The response has been nothing short of incredible.

Unlike a lot of the Tribute bands that are currently performing, we do not "pretend" to be the Silver Bullet Band, wearing costumes etc... Bob Seger has always been just 100% straight ahead Rock and Roll. That's what you get from us, a true representation of the man and his music.

It was really an honour for us to record the music of Bob Seger. Every song on this disc has touched our lives in one way or another. He has been one of my heroes for as long as I can remember and it really means a lot to me personally when people say that I sound like him. It's my hope that everyone understands that this CD is not an attempt to in any way "replace" the music of Bob Seger but it is our sincere effort to truly pay tribute to a man that is a real American Hero and Living Legend.

Thanks Bob!

Sam Morrison
