The legendary George Thorogood is Tom DeSavia’s latest guest in the ‘Gone In 30 Minutes’ podcast series. In this latest episode, the much-respected American musician, singer and songwriter, talks about grabbing the brass ring in life, and how things changed after touring with The Rolling Stones.
Framed around the upcoming release of the rockin’ George Thorogood and The Destroyers Live in Boston 1982: The Complete Concert album, this Bad To The Bone legend reminds us of the constant influence of music on our lives, and that while some trips are not necessary, every party needs a beer. You can check it out in full below.
The 27-track Live in Boston, 1982: The Complete Concert, out December 4 via Craft Recordings, captures the band’s fiery set in its entirety, including spoken introductions.
