George Thorogood is an institution of the blues-club circuit. He rode
yet another blues revival, this time for the post-punk generation.
& The Destroyers (Rounder, 1978) introduced the ferocious Delaware-based
bluesman with an eight-minute version of John Lee Hooker's
One Scotch One Bourbon One Beer
and the rock and roll of Ride On Josephine.
Rhythm and blues classics are ripped apart by a savage, exuberant energy
that links the shouters of the 1950s with the garage-rockers of the 1960s
and the punk-rockers of the 1970s.
Move It On Over (Rounder, 1979) delivered more Chicago blues classics
and earth-shaking boogie rave-ups
for the generation that had not been born yet when those classics were cut.
It contains his legendary version of Bo Diddley's Who Do You Love and
the title-track (Hank Williams).
More (Rounder, 1980) was a mediocre follow-up but
Bad To The Bone (EMI, 1982) established both his persona and his
songwriting to a broader audience via his terrifying anthem
Bad To The Bone.
Maverick (EMI, 1985), with
I Drink Alone,
Born To Be Bad (EMI, 1988), with
Born To Be Bad ,
Boogie People (EMI, 1991),
Haircut (EMI, 1993)
and Rockin' My Life Away (EMI, 1997)
continued his modest saga, true to his faith in the blues.
