January 27, 2007 -- EVEN though it's been 11 years since Bob Seger prowled an arena stage, by the time he played "Rock 'n' Roll Never Forgets," the last song in his Madison Square Garden set, it was clear this graybeard rocker also remembers.

For more than two hours Thursday, the revered 61-year-old Detroit rocker was a human jukebox laying down two dozen of his own songs, most of which have become part of the classic rock foundation.

Seger's trademark rasp, deeper than when he was a kid, packed familiar passion. His power ballads remain emotional, vivid sketches about lost and found love, life on the road and the breezy summer nights of his youth.

The upbeat rockers such as "Betty Lou's Gettin' Out Tonight," the stuttering Ka-Ka-Ka-"Katmandu" and his once-risque "Horizontal Bop" oiled the dancing bones of the youth-

challenged audience.

Like his fans, Seger isn't much to look at.

He's round in the middle, gray at the top and craggy in the kisser, but despite looking like a roadie who's too old to tote an amp, he was the total star when hunkered down at the piano or strapped into an acoustic guitar doing one of his famous ballads like "Night Moves" or "Against the Wind."
