Bob Seger on Framingham

FRAMINGHAM

Excuse us if we reminisce about the days of old. Bob Seger is back. Eleven years after his last CD, Seger has released a new album, "Face the Promise." His tour comes to the TD Banknorth Garden tomorrow night.

The title song in Seger's new collection takes a little dig at Framingham. While wishing goodbye to all the small towns he no longer cares to be in, Seger mentions Framingham in a class with, among other places, Alabam'.

When asked by the Globe why he singled out the town, Seger appeared to suggest that Framingham was simply blindsided by a runaway rhyme scheme.

He said the mention was "a simple matter of geography; it had to end in 'ham.'"
