Since 1976 George Thorogood and his band, The Destroyers, have been bringing their brand of amped-up boogie blues and hard-driving rock and roll to the masses, releasing more than 20 albums and selling more than 15 million copies worldwide. Two records are certified platinum, and six are certified gold. He has become a standard of classic rock radio programming with hits "Bad To The Bone" and "I Drink Alone," and covers of Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love?," Hank Williams' "Move It On Over," and John Lee Hooker's "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer." Thorogood solidified his title as one of the hardest working musicians in the business when he completed his now legendary 50 states in 50 days tour in 1981. He also gained considerable exposure earning an opening slot on The Rolling Stones' U.S. tour in 1981. By 1985, he would be playing to more than 89,000 people at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia. And another 1.9 billion globally via satellite as a part of the historic lineup of acts at the Live Aid concerts staged simultaneously in London and Philly.
At 72 years young, the Delaware native is staying true to his roots, with no signs of slowing down, and tearing up the touring circuit on his Good To Be Bad Tour, celebrating his and the band’s 45 years in the music business. He’s also just released a collection of, what he calls, hard-stompin', party-down, good songs—that he penned himself. The Original George Thorogood brings together the best from Thorogood and his unstoppable, longtime band.
Always eager to give back, Thorogood is donating a portion of the proceeds from this tour to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. You can catch him and the boys through the end of June playing select dates with veteran rocker Sammy Hagar then he takes his act across the pond for a European leg that will last into August. He will return stateside to play more dates that extend through May 2023. (so far.) A hard-working man and band indeed. This is a LifeMinute with George Thorogood.
