50 Years For George and the Destroyers

Lonesome George started out playing acoustic guitar, and he was awesome. He played Robert Johnson and Elmore James, and it wasn't long before he formed a band with friends from high school. Can you guess what George's first band was called? I love this. They were the Deleware Destroyers. It was meant to be from day one. It's so great to see classic rock endure, and it's even better to watch someone who loves playing guitar the way Thorogood does.
