'Badder Than Ever': George Thorogood discusses new tours, music and career

By: James Wood
With a sound best described as powerhouse rock with bar band roots, George Thorogood and The Destroyers rose from the clubs of the Delaware Valley and New England areas in the early '70s on the strength of his take on songs by blues masters like Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker and Bo Diddley.
Over the course of his 40-year career, Thorogood has released 16 studio albums (including six gold and two platinum) as well as opened for The Rolling Stones on their historic 1981 tour and took part of Live Aid in 1985 where he got to perform with Diddley as well as fellow blues legend Albert Collins. Thorogood has also put his own signature stamp on the blues with songs likes "Bad To The Bone" and "I Drink Alone".
To help celebrate his milestone career, Thorogood plans to do what he does best - bring his music to the people. His upcoming ‘Badder Than Ever’ Tour will visit 15 cities up and down the East Coast and California. In addition to those solo dates, Thorogood will also be teaming up with another musical icon, Brian Setzer for a monthlong tour that will kick off May 27 in Red Bank, New Jersey.
AXS recently caught up with Thorogood to find out about the tours as well as his music and some of the highlights of his career.
What can fans expect from your tour this time around?
They can expect that it will be a better show than the last time I played. The idea is you’re always supposed to improve every time you come around. That’s the only way to stay in business.
