With the release of George Thorogood & The Destroyers in 1977, the band quickly established themselves as radio favorites and as a touring machine. They signed with EMI for their major label debut, 1982's Bad ToThe Bone, and they recorded seven studio albums during their tenure with the label, departing after 1997's Rockin' My Life Away. Described as "the world's greatest bar band," the group has had tremendous success with Thorogood's original compositions like "You Talk Too Much," "I Drink Alone" and of course "Bad To The Bone." Thorogood has also had hits with covers of iconic blues-rock songs like "Who Do You Love" (Bo Diddley), "Move It On Over" (Hank Williams) and "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" (John Lee Hooker). 2004's Greatest Hits: 30 Years Of Rock was Billboard's #1 Blues Album in 2004 and 2005, and the band's 12th studio album, 2006's The Hard Stuff, hit #2 on Billboard's Blues chart.
