      "Here I am, on the road again. There I am, up on the stage. Here I go, playin'  star again. There I go, turn the page."

      It looks like the lyrics to Bob Seger's deathless 1973 tune about the unforgiving life on the road may have deeper meaning these days than his hardcore fans would care to admit.

      According to a quote posted on recently, the 67-year-old rocker may be getting ready to "Turn the Page" on touring.

      "I'm definitely nearing the end," said Seger from his studio in southern Michigan. "I can't see myself doing this when I'm 70 and I'm going to be 68 in May.

      "I've had a wonderful, wonderful run," he added, "and my audiences have just kept coming and it's really nice but all good things have come to an end. ... Of course if the [new] album takes off--in this day and age, I haven't got a clue--but if it does, then we might tour another year, we'll see."

      I recommend that if you haven't seen Seger yet, and it's on your bucket list, that you score tickets pronto to his show in Vancouver on March 27. And hey, maybe you should take your sister.
