Legendary rock band George Thorogood And The Destroyers, has stormed the rock & roll charts for more than 40 years. With more than four decades years of touring and recording, 15 million albums sold, and 8,000 live shows, George and his longtime band – Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough(bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) – remain among the most relevant classic rock acts on tour today. The band has amassed a catalog of hits that includes “Who Do You Love”, “I Drink Alone”, “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”, “Move It On Over”, “Get A Haircut” and the anthemic, “Bad To The Bone.” The band has released 16 studio albums – including six Gold and two Platinum discs on Rounder, EMI and Capitol – but it’s their powerhouse live performances that have made George Thorogood And The Destroyers legendary.
The group is putting their talents to work by helping The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. Thorogood and the Destroyers will be donating $1 from each ticket sale of their “Rock Party Tour” to LLS, when the tour kicks off their 21-city tour on May 18. The tour will continue through September 16 at Oregon’s largest casino, Spirit Mountain Casino, in Grand Ronde, OR.
