The greater Phoenix area had an amazing evening of Rock & Roll on Saturday March 4th. There were a number of great bands that rolled into the valley. I and a full house of fans got to see a 70s Rock and Roll icon, George Thorogood And The Destroyers. I saw George Thorogood And The Destroyers back in the early 80s with the Rolling Stones at ASU Sun Devil Stadium. I have got to admit that this show was just as energetic and fun. George and the band were at the top of their game and we got a great rock & roll show. They played all of their greatest hits much to the delight of all of their fans.
They started the show with the 2006 high-energy boogie-blues song “Rock Party”. George strutted around the stage and at times played side-by-side with the other guitarist, the bassist and sax player. He was constantly playing to the crowd including the people standing on the side of the stage. George grew up watching the great bands of the 60s. His idols were Keith Richards and Mick Jagger. In a way, George attempts to take on the persona of both. He plays guitar like Keith and has the dynamic stage presence of Mick.
