Tom Hambridge and George Thorogood: New York, NY, September 27, 2011

By Published: October 29, 2011
After the last of the encores, the lights came up and a recorded version of "The Star Spangled Banner" could be heard over the loudspeakers. George came back out, saluted the crowd and flag and amicably shook hands with those who, knowing what to expect, swarmed the stage.

Thirty years ago when he first recorded many of his most-well known tunes, they were already twenty years old. Its is a testament to the songs and to Thorogood that they sound as fresh today as they did in the late '70-early '80s, and when they were first recorded in the '50s by the likes of John Lee Hooker
