Thorogood is 'bad to the bone' for life

George Thorogood thought about becoming a comic. After all, he had 100 jokes in his portfolio when he was in sixth grade, he said.
But the hard-rocking, blues-playing Thorogood settled on guitar and a career playing rock 'n' roll and blues music.
Four decades later, there's still comedy in his bones and joy that his job consists of performing on stage with a rock band. "Even the president wants to do that," he quipped.
Thorogood comes to Genesee Theatre Friday to perform during his Badder Than Ever tour, playing classics including "Who Do You Love," "I Drink Alone," and his iconic "Bad to the Bone."

"The music of your youth is always the most powerful," says blues rocker George Thorogood. "From the minute I heard bands like the Stones and people like Robert Johnson, I knew that I had found music that was vital. It was like, 'Where did this come from? How can this be?' And it's the stuff that's stayed with me all this time. It's that good!"
Thorogood recalls a similar conversation that he had with his friend Gary Busey. The actor and musician remarked, "It's the music that changed my life." "I looked at him and said, "'No, Gary, it's the music that made your life,'" Thorogood says. "Gary thought about it and he agreed. I mean, come on. You're only 14—how much living have you really done yet? I know it's that's way for me. This music didn't change my life. It made it, and I'm so thankful for that."
