On November 19, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release George Thorogood & The Destroyers: Live At Montreux 2013 on DVD, Blu-ray and CD. Featuring some of the band’s biggest hits, the release captures the group’s take on Chicago blues blended with their own inimitable style.
Tuesday (November 27) marks 70 years since the birth of Jimi Hendrix, the man who changed electric guitar and rock’n’roll forever. For the past few weeks, CBS Local has discussed the man’s impact with musicians who came after him, his peers, and even one of his main inspirations. Everyone felt his influence, whether it was on their guitar playing, or their singing. Some even found a new direction for their life thanks to Jimi.
“After I saw (Hendrix), I had to go to school the next day. It didn’t work for me anymore, I was done with that. I couldn’t go pledge alliegence to the flag and do 40 pushups. I couldn’t take school seriously after what I saw the night before.” – George Thorogood
Legendary blues-rocker George Thorogood is a longtime baseball fan, and he often discusses his love for America’s pastime often. But in a recent interview with CBS Local, the Delaware icon revealed that he was contemplating leaving music to try to work for the Los Angeles Dodgers… in their public relations department. His reasoning: the organization has a great history which they aren’t marketing properly.
