George Thorogood performing at Niagara Falls, Canada

George Thorogood born February 24, 1950 is an American blues rock vocalist/guitarist and recording artist from the state of Delaware in the  United States.
In the 1970s, Thorogood played on a baseball team in Delaware in a semi-professional League. He was the second baseman and was chosen rookie of the year  However, after seeing John P. Hammond perform he turned toward music  and by the late-1970s, success in the music industry led him to quit playing the sport and focus on music instead.
Thorogood’s demo, Better Than the Rest, was recorded in 1974, but was  not released until 1979. His major recording debut came in 1976 with the album: George Thorogood & The Destroyers.
While touring in the 1970s, the Destroyers and Jim Thackery’s Nighthawks happened to be playing shows in Georgetown (DC) at venues across the street from each other. The Destroyers were engaged at The Cellar Door and the Nighthawks at Desperados. At midnight, by prior arrangement, while both bands played Elmore James’ “Madison Blues” in the key of E, Thorogood and Thackery left their clubs, met in the middle of the Street, exchanged guitar patch cords and went on to play with the opposite band in the other club.
Thorogood gained his first mainstream exposure as a support act for The Rolling Stones during their 1981 U.S. tour. Thorogood and the Destroyers also became known for their rigorous touring schedule, including the “50/50” tour of 1980, on which the band toured 50 US states in the space of 50 days
With a fusion of roots rock, roots blues and endless boogie, George Thorogood and the destroyers have spent more than 35 years touring the world and getting people on their feet.
All but one album have charted in the top 100 Billboard charts with eight in the top 10.
He has recorded or appeared on no less then 27 albums throughout his ongoing career and continues to tour and preform to  sold out venues.
