In 1973, Hank Aaron was within one home run of Babe Ruth’s MLB all-time record; President Nixon announced that he wasn’t a crook; A gallon of gas cost 39 cents; MTV was still 8 years away, and a young Wilmington guitar-slinger and his band played their first electrifying gig at a University of Delaware residence hall.

Today, home run records are performance-enhanced; Watergate seems quaint, while gas prices veer to insane. Few remember what the ‘M’ in MTV once stood for. But over 8,000 live shows and 15 million albums sold worldwide later, George Thorogood is still making explosive music, still thrilling audiences, and still the baddest-to-the-bone performer in rock. That’s 40 Years Strong.

For George Thorogood and his longtime band The Destroyers – Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) – their 40th anniversary is indestructible proof that staying true to yourself and the music can still mean something. And with a catalog of iconic hits that includes “Who Do You Love”, “I Drink Alone”, “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”, “Move It On Over”, “Bad To The Bone” and more, being able to share it with audiences is what will always matter.
