George Thorogood: the soundtrack of my life
Singer/guitarist George Thorogood picks his records, artists and gigs of significance, and reveals why Elvis Presley was a freak of nature. Bad To The Bone rocker George Thorogood has been ripping up stages around the world since the mid-70s with his aptly named band the Destroyers.
With more than 8,000 kick-ass gigs and 15 million album sales on the clock since he started the group in Wilmington, Delaware with Jeff Simon (drums) and Billy Blough (bass), Thorogood has played everywhere, from the funkiest roadhouse bars to Live Aid in Philadelphia and stadium shows with the Rolling Stones. He has just released a full-show deluxe version of his classic album Live in Boston, 1982. READ MORE

George Thorogood Talks New Live Album, Early Influences, And More | 102.5 WDVE

Had a great conversation with George Thorogood today!
He called in to chat about the new George Thorogood and The Destroyers album "LIVE IN BOSTON, 1982 - The Complete Concert," which is out now. The album title probably sounds familiar...that's because highlights from the November '82 concert at the Bradford Ballroom have been released before, but this is the entire show!
There are 24 songs on the new album (12 of which are previously unreleased), it clocks in at about 2 and half hours, and I would honestly rank as one of the best live albums of all time.
We also talked about his early influences, life during the pandemic, returning to touring, and much more.
George Thorogood's Live In Boston 1982 is one of the great live albums... and now it's even bigger
