Rock Notes: George Thorogood Goes it Alone on Next Album

Subscribe to KYBB-FM / B102.7 on

George Thorogood has put the Destroyers on hold for his first solo album, titled Party Of One, which will be released via Rounder Records on August 4th. One week later, he’ll be at the Sioux Empire Fair in Sioux Falls August 9th, 2017.

According to Party Of One‘s press release, the collection features 15 cuts of “traditional blues, classics, and modern blues songs inspired by John Lee Hooker, Hank Williams, the Rolling Stones, Willie Dixon, Bob Dylan, and Johnny Cash.

On the upcoming album Thorogood flexes his musical prowess by performing all the slide guitar, dobro, and harmonica on the album. He said, “I think this is a project that’s long overdue. Maybe it should have been the very first album I ever made. After playing with the band for all these years, I had to kind of reverse my hands and my head in order to do this thing justice.”

Pulse of RADIO asked George Thorogood, who’s out on the road with the Destroyers, whether or not they actually feel like a 40-plus-year-old band spreading its unique brand of blues:

It just feels like we’re still just getting up every day and going to work — just under better conditions. It doesn’t really hit me that, like, ‘Uh, it’s 40 years, blah, blah, blah.’ You don’t really think things like that — at least I don’t. If I have an interesting anecdote or a story that happened in the past, y’know, I’ll share it with somebody, but I’m not really the kind of guy that dwells on that kind of thing. I’m interested in what’s going on today, and maybe, y’know, tomorrow, or the next day.”
