I knew what to expect with George Thorogood and he didn't disappoint, but Kenny Wayne Shepherd blew me away!

Kenny Wayne Shepherd totally rocked, we also enjoyed Charlie Musselwhite very much but George Thorogood and the Destroyers were not good at all, they are just a two hit wonder.

Description

Legendary blues-rock band, George Thorogood and the Destroyers will perform during The Greek Theatre’s 80th Anniversary season with special guests Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Charlie Musselwhite.

George Thorogood and the Destroyers released their self-titled debut album in 1977 and quickly established themselves as radio favorites and as a touring machine.  Described as “the world’s greatest bar band,” the group has sold more than 15 million albums worldwide and has had tremendous success with Thorogood’s original compositions like “You Talk Too Much,” “I Drink Alone” and of course “Bad To The Bone;” he’s also had hits with covers of iconic blues-rock songs like “Who Do You Love” (Bo Diddley), “Move It On Over” (Hank Williams) and “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer” (John Lee Hooker).  Thorogood’s Gold-certified Greatest Hits: 30 Years Of Rock was Billboard’s #1 Blues Album for 2004 and 2005, and the band’s 2006 album, The Hard Stuff, reached #2.  2009’s The Dirty Dozen debuted at #1 on the Blues chart, fueled by the album’s #1 single, “Tail Dragger.”

On their 17th studio album, 2120 South Michigan Avenue, to be released July 12 by Capitol/EMI, Thorogood and the Destroyers pay tribute to their Chess Records heroes, including many of Thorogood’s legendary mentors who helped to launch his career in rock & roll.  Named for the address of Chess Records’ Chicago headquarters, _2120 _features Thorogood’s raw, rocking turn on classics by a who’s-who of the blues, including Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, and other Chess greats, plus new original songs written by Thorogood, the album’s producer Tom Hambridge, and Richard Fleming.  The album’s guests include 2010 GRAMMY Award winners Buddy Guy and Charlie Musselwhite.
