Bar blues on a big scale: that's the best way to describe George Thorogood. His time honored blues-boogie sound wouldn't sound out of place in any bar in the country, but songs like "Bad to the Bone" and "I Drink Alone" are instantly recognizable to anyone who touched a radio dial in the 1980s. Over the years Thorogood has stayed remarkably consistent, rarely straying far from a sound informed equally by Elmore James and Chuck Berry.

Since 1974, George Thorogood and his Destroyers have enlivened audiences with their lively, good-time blues-rock. Thorogood's gravelly voice and Chuck Berry-inspired guitar riffs are instantly recognizable; the inclusion of "Bad to the Bone" in the movie Terminator 2, among other films, delighted audiences. Recording and performing steadily throughout the 1990s, Thorogood makes his future goals clear with the title of his 2003 release, Ride Till I Die.
