What rock stars have lived (and some still do) in Southwest Florida?
From Marco Island to North Fort Myers, Southwest Florida is filled with people who grew up on rock 'n' roll from the Moody Blues to AC/DC.
But did you know that this region has been home to a few rockers over the years, including many you've grown up with?
Here's a list:
Bob Seger — The Detroit rocker has called Naples home for more than a quarter century, living part-time in a Gulf-side condo. During his 2015 show at Germain (now Hertz) Arena in Estero, Seger told the sold-out crowd: “I get to play one of my hometowns. We feel right at home here.” Seger has penned and recorded numerous songs, and they include "Against The Wind,""Hollywood Nights,""Old Time Rock & Roll" and "Still the Same."

Donna Summer — The Queen of Disco and Rock And Roll Hall of Fame member lived here and created and sold paintings before dying in her Naples home in May 2012. Summer, who was 63, is considered the biggest star from the disco era Her 1979 hit, "Hot Stuff" remained at No. 1 for three weeks.
Cliff Williams — The AC/DC bassist has lived in south Lee County for years. The Australian-based band remains among the top 10 best-selling artists of all time, with hits including "You Shook Me All Night Long" and "Thunderstruck."
Alex Lifeson (Zivojinovich) — The longtime guitarist for the Canadian band Rush lived in Naples before moving more than a decade ago. He left not long after Collier County sheriff's deputies arrived at the beach-side Ritz-Carlton during a 2003 New Year Eve's party and used Tasers to subdue his son, Justin. Lifeson's son later sued and settled out of court. Rush has scored numerous rock hits, such as "Limelight."
Brian Howe — The former Bad Company singer recently announced he's selling his Fort Myers Beach home to move to Nashville. Howe succeeded Paul Rodgers as lead singer, and sang on the 1990 hit "If You Need Somebody."
