About George Thorogood & The Destroyers
George Thorogood & The Destroyers perform live in concert at Horseshoe Tunica on March 14, 2014.
After more than 8,000 live shows and 15 million albums sold worldwide, George Thorogood continues to make explosive music, thrill audiences, and is still the baddest-to-the-bone performer in rock.
For George Thorogood and his longtime band The Destroyers – Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) – their 40th anniversary is indestructible proof that staying true to yourself and the music can still mean something. And with a catalog of iconic hits that includes “Who Do You Love,” “I Drink Alone,” “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,” “Move It On Over,” “Bad To The Bone” and more, being able to share it with audiences is what will always matter.
For audiences and radio alike, the band instantly embodies – and continues to define – powerhouse rock with bar band roots, unchained attitude and a fierce love of its country and blues history. Over the course of sixteen studio albums (including six gold and two platinum), they would storm the charts by putting their own stamp on nuggets by Hank Williams, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker, Elmore James and more, while simultaneously bashing out smash GT originals that crackle with humor and swagger.
Ultimately, the 40 Years Strong Tour is 50% celebration, 50% declaration and 100% Thorogood throw-down. But after 4 decades as one of the most consistent – and consistently unique – careers in rock, can a guitar-slinger still at the top of his game choose a moment that sums it all up? “Stan Musial was once asked, ‘What was the greatest day of your career?’ And Stan said ‘Every day when I walk onto the field is the greatest day.’ I feel the same way,” George says. “Every night when I walk out on that stage is the highlight of my career. I hit that first chord, the band kicks in, and we hear the audience respond. That’s the rush. 40 years into this, and every night, that's still the only moment that matters.”
For George Thorogood & The Destroyers – and for rock and roll – it doesn't get stronger than that. Don’t miss George Thorogood & The Destroyers’ concert in Tunica.
