George Thorogood & The Destroyers

Jim Sullivan, Trouser Press, February 1981

GEORGE THOROGOOD sits in a hotel room in western Massachusetts, watching television. It's a bitter cold November night; in a couple of hours he will journey 15 winding miles to a club called the Rusty Nail — absolutely the only sign of life on Route 47 — where he and the Destroyers will resurrect hard rockin' rhythm and blues for a thousand-plus people.
