Product Overview

George Thorogood is the quintessential American blues-rock guitarist. In a career that spans more than three decades, he has led his band The Destroyers to the very pinnacle of the blues pyramid spawning such classic tracks as "Bad To The Bone", "I Drink Alone", "Get A Haircut" and "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" among others.

This new album sees him honing his talent even further on new self-penned tracks such as "The Hard Stuff" and "Any Town USA", and a selection of classic covers such as John Lee Hooker’s "Huckle Up Baby" and Fats Domino’s "Hello Josephine", all given the unmistakeable Thorogood treatment.

On his 2006 outing, THE HARD STUFF, veteran singer/guitarist George Thorogood leads the Destroyers through a set of typically rough-and-tumble blues-rock. Mixing revved-up originals (the tough-as-nails title track and the humorous "I Didn't Know") with well-chosen covers that range from old-fashioned rock & roll (Fats Domino's "Hello Josephine") to understated lovelorn blues (Jimmy Reed's "Little Rain Falling"), the bar-band hero also settles into a chiming version of Bob Dylan's "Drifter's Escape," which reveals a subtler side of the famously "Bad to the Bone" performer. Although Thorogood lacks some of his youthful ferocity, he still knows what works, ensuring that his loyal fans will be wholly entertained.
