George Thorogood & The Destroyers Enjoying 40th Anniversary On The Road
George Thorogood & The Destroyers are enjoying their 40th anniversary by doing what they do best -- gigging. The band's intended debut set, 1974's Better Than the Rest, was left unreleased until 1979 after the band's first two albums proved the band to have legs.
 
We asked Thorogood -- who's never been one to look back nostalgically on his career -- what it feels like for the band to have a solid 40 years under their belts: "Things have gone so well for us over the - probably for the last 10 years or so, things have really picked up for our act. Y’know, better venues, we got a great staff, we got many more songs to play than we did 40 years ago. We play ‘em better than we used to! Better travel conditions, so as time’s gone on, it’s been refreshing, it feels like, ‘Boy, I wish it’d been this way in the beginning (laughs)!"
