George Thorogood (Vocals/Guitar): George Thorogood (vocals, guitar).Audio Remixer: Tom Rothrock.Liner Note Author: Joel Selvin.Recording information: Cincinnati Gardens, OH (??/1970-02/1993).Author: George Thorogood .Photographer: Henry Diltz.If George Thorogood did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him. With his Delaware Destroyers by his side, Thorogood spent the 1970s, '80s, and '90s cutting through all pretense and pomposity with a raw, rootsy, bare-bones style steeped in traditional blues, R&B, and early rock & roll. His gravelly vocals, power-tool slide guitar, and no-frills bar-band aesthetic have endeared him to fans of honest, good-time music for decades, as documented on this hits package.30 YEARS OF ROCK is like a walk through through American musical history, as Thorogood makes his way through the songs of such roots legends as Hank Williams (a rocked-up version of "Move It on Over," a proto-rockabilly song to begin with), Elmore James (the blistering slow blues "The Sky Is Crying," predating Stevie Ray Vaughan's version), Bo Diddley (a tough, pounding "Who Do You Love?"), and more. Thorogood's own songs are on offer as well, most notably the Muddy Waters-like jukebox staple "Bad to the Bone" and the humorous "I Drink Alone." Hoist a bottle of (domestic) beer in celebration of George Thorogood's 30 YEARS OF ROCK.

Love "Bad to the Bone"
I bought this specifically for "Bad to the Bone" and had no idea what the rest of the songs would be like. I only listened to the CD once through but will certainly give the other songs another chance. It's just that none of them grabbed me like "Bone" did all those years ago.

Great variety of Thorogood music.
This was bought as a gift for my girlfriend's father. He was looking for a song that was on it and wanted to hear more of Thorogood's work. This is the perfect CD for anyone who wants a variety of good Thorogood hits.
