Just released is The Original George Thorogood — a 14-song collection of Thorogood’s best known self-written classics. Among the highlights on the new set are “I Drink Alone,” “Bad To The Bone,” “If You Don’t Start Drinkin’,” “(I’m Gonna Leave),” and “Born To Be Bad.”

In talking about the new compilation, Thorogood looked back at his side career as a rock songsmith: “I guess a good song is a good song is a good song, y’know? It’s easy to write a song, difficult to write a good song, and even harder to write a great song. It strikes home that I have the ability to write some pretty great songs, and there’s a real sense of achievement to that.”

George Thorogood & The Destroyers kick off their next string of dates on April 29th in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin at Crystal Grand Music Theatre.
