George Thorogood and the Destroyers

1950 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Acoustic guitar/electric guitar

Genres: Blues, Rock

Delaware native George Thorogood burst out of - seemingly - nowhere to take the music scene by storm in the middle of the 1970s. Flanked by his tough as nails backing band The Destroyers, the guitarist cranked up his amplifier to 11 and delivered a simpler, rawer and faster version of 1950's Chicago blues and rock 'n' roll. His tried and tested formula met with considerable success throughout the 1980s. Thorogood's explosive live act also helped build his reputation. Boasting a broad repertoire of self-penned numbers and good old blues standards, the musician is best known for his signature tune, Bad to the Bone and a cover of John Lee Hooker's One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer.
