George Thorogood & the Destroyers- Bad to the Bone 40th anniversary

I have interviewed literally hundreds of the greatest rock musicians , but George Thorogood is the only one who told me that he was planning to be a professional comedian, not a musician. It is the fortieth anniversary of  the best-selling album by bare-knuckle electric bluesrocker George Thorogood with July 1982's Bad to the Bone. George marks the occasion here In the Studio  with his unlikely journey featuring all of his biggest hits including "One Bourbon, One Scotch, and One Beer","Move It On Over", Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love", "I Drink Alone", Chuck Berry's "It Wasn't Me", and of course "Bad to the Bone".

George Thorogood Talks Baseball

When Major League Baseball presents their mid-summer classic the All Star Game, they have a treasure trove of more than a century of legendary sportswriting, reporting, play-by-play radio and television recordings, Hollywood movies, books, and the sublime Ken Burns episodic tv documentary from which to draw. While Ken Burns had Negro League player/coach Buck McWilliams, sportswriter Studs Terkel, and George Plimpton, here In the Studio we have former minor league ( one season, "A" League) player George Thorogood to talk about baseball.
