Thorogood badder than ever

Time has failed to slow down 66-year-old George Thorogood’s energy as the boogie blues rocker is badder than ever.

Thorogood and The Destroyers blew the roof off Kelowna’s Prospera Place Wednesday night.

They pulled out a catalogue of classics including Bad to the Bone, Who Do You Love, I Drink Alone, Move It On Over and of course One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer.

With his lineup of drinking-themed songs, and being 4-20, Thorgood also made sure to deliver an important message to the audience.

“If you’re high don’t drive…get your old lady to drive you, better yet, get your buddy’s old lady to drive you.”

Thorogood wasn’t shy about his guitar-slinging talent, delivering multiple long solos.

“Pretty good huh?” he responded to the audience’s enthusiasm.

Opened by the high-energy blues of the Ben Miller Band, Thorogood’s performance had the crowd up on their feet grooving to the tunes. And the smile on his face proved Thorogood was equally as thrilled to be there.

“Every night when I walkout on that stage is the highlight of my career,” said Thorogood on his website. “I hit that first chord, the band kicks in,and we hear the audience respond. That’s the rush. Over 40 years into this, and every night that’s still the only moment that matters.”
