George Thorogood & The Destroyers Essentials

George Thorogood & The Destroyers Essentials

With an insatiable appetite for mean, growling boogie, George Thorogood & The Destroyers bash out a stripped-down mix of Chicago blues and '50s rock 'n' roll. Their most beloved jam is 1982's “Bad to the Bone”, a pounding declaration that showcases Thorogood's smoky snarl and slick slide work, while “I Drink Alone” has a bruising groove with slapback reverb. Yet underneath their boozy, hard-living image lurks a refined taste for the blues: Steeped in its tradition, the band pull off the John Lee Hooker-style pulse and chicken-scratch guitar powering “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”.
