Charlie Allen Martin was Bob Seger's original drummer in the Silver Bullet Band, formed in 1974. One bad day, Martin was walking on a service road after running our of gas, when he was hit from behind by a lady with no lights or insurance. He was left unable to walk. Nevertheless, he later formed his own band, the Late Show, which played in the Detroit area. His love for life showed many drummers more than any drum clinic or band could ever show. Charlie Allen Martin has a great attitude.
When Bob Seger played Pine Knob (an outdoor venue near Detroit), Martin came out on stage in a wheelchair and played keyboards on Get Out of Denver.
As Bob Seger's drummer Charlie Allen Martin was replaced by Dave Teegarden, who was in turn replaced in 1983 by Don Brewer, formerly of Grand Funk Railroad.
