Says fellow guitar legend Slash, "George Thorogood's genuine style and attitude continue to inspire me as he and The Destroyers rock on into their 40th year.  He has been a hero of mine since I first heard his music in the 70's, and is one of the baddest rock 'n' roll songwriters/electric slide guitar players ever."  Echoes Steve Miller, "For 40 years, I've had the privilege and pleasure of sharing the stage with George many times, and what started as admiration has grown into a deep love and respect for the man, his music, his band, and his spirit.  He is truly an original."             

George Thorogood and his longtime band The Destroyers – whose current lineup includes:  Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone), have released 16 studio albums, with two Platinum albums and six Gold albums.  Taking the stage for the first time on December 1, 1973, the band has established themselves as a mega successful powerhouse rock group with bar roots, unchained attitude, and a love of its country and blues history.           

The ICON album includes the following songs:  "Bad To The Bone," "I Drink Alone," "Willie And The Hand Jive," "Gear Jammer," "If You Don't Start Drinkin' (I'm Gonna Leave)," "Who Do You Love? (Live)," "Treat Her Right," "I'm A Steady Rollin' Man," "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer (Live)," "Get A Haircut" and "Do The Do."
