• On, May 22, 1977, Robert Hilburn wrote in the Los Angeles Times. In an article entitled "Bob Seger, Rock's Prodigal Son." The following from a conversation with Seger: Ship of Fools: "I've seen a lot of my friends lose their passion and end up in a rut, afraid to take a chance. 'Night Moves' is about romantic passion, but 'Ship of Fools' from the album is about passion for life. Maybe a guy's working a job he doesn't like and he sees an ad about the Alaska pipeline or something that excites him. But there are problems. His wife says it's too cold in Alaska or whatever. So he passes it up and just keeps on with something he hates."
