There is something going on in the time period we are in now where many iconic artists are having milestone years.  The Used boasted celebrating 15 years, Robin Trower was celebrating 40 Years since the release of Bridge of Sighs, Pearl Jam celebrated 20 Years in 2011, The Stones celebrated 50 Years on their last tour, and The Who will do the same by celebrating their 50th Year Anniversary when they hit our city this coming May.  This tour happened to mark the 40th Anniversary for Mr. Thorogood and you would have thought this was his first year in the biz with the enthusiasm he gave the audience at The Pageant a couple weeks ago.  I will not be breaking this down into things that I remember the most about this show becasue the entire experience was amazing.  From the excitement in the crowd, to the active live performance George put on, and not to mention the catalog of hits that any rock fan should know that dominated his setlist was awesome to experience as a newbie to seeing Thorogood live.  It really made me see how much things have changed in the world and in the music industry in the last 40 Years, and it was comforting to know that good old rock n roll will never die.  We are American and music like George Thorogood, and countless other acts, have been recording records for the last 40 years.  They have contributed beautifully to the historical pieces of rock music that have played along side us as we grew up in this country.  I will always want to be “Bad to the Bone” and I’ll always go for “one bourbon, one scotch, and one beer” when I want to party like a true rock star.  Thanks George for being the true rock star that you are!
