Hey guys, I need your help coming up with the 100 reasons why this photo of the Bob Seger System (bigger version ) is the greatest photo in the world.

1. The bass player's mustache.
2. The drum set-up: six (count 'em!) kick drums.
3. Seger's pants.
4. The fact that Seger's guitar strap matches those pants.
5. The absolutely blissed out look on the drummer's face.
6. Are they playing on the top floor of a barn?
7. The custom paint job on Seeg's guitar.
7. That's the same guitar he played when he .
8. Drummer's wearing a dog collar.
9. That sheet covering the piano (or is it the PA?) has little pink flowers on it.
10. Seger's brown wifebeater.
11. Seriously, look at that drum concoction over the drummer's head. Have you ever seen anything like that? Even Tommy Lee never dreamed up anything as insane as that.
12. The bass player might actually be Lester Bangs. Or my dad. Wait a minute. Is Lester Bangs my dad?
13. There's black mold growing on the inside of those kick drums up front.
14. Or did they just not have enough gold spray paint to reach the back of those drums?
15. No, I'm pretty sure that's mold.
16. Where are the amps?
17. The drums aren't miked at all? You know why? They're playing upstairs in a tiny room.


Okay, your turn. Help me out. I'm pretty sure we can get to 100, or at least pretty close. Be sure to number your responses so we know how far we have to go...

18. Seger's filthy fucking shoes
19. I am pretty sure those pants are in Joshua's basement (inside joke, I know, but I think they are)
20. Bass player-Lester Bangs-Jake's Dad may in fact be asleep
21. Curly guitar chord dangling from Seeg's guitar. What happened to those?
22. Seeg's face is distorted in a way that people surely thought it would remain that way forever
23. Even the hardware on that kit looks to be painted gold--must have been a bitch to break down after shows
24. Strange kick drum contraption doubles as heating ducts, giving us a peak into the drums future as a HVAC tech
25. Looks to be a Fender Rhodes 77 "Suitcase" piano on that sheet. I can tell you from experience that those things are anything but "portable"

26. Dog collar on the drummer mixes so so many genres. Is that punk? Metal? Bondage? Or just functional?

27. Peace symbols on the bass guitar pay homage to the end of flower power and the dawn of Motor City stink!

From @ via Twitter:

55. Anyone who had to lug that drum set upstairs is seriously passionate or crazy - or both.
