Thorogood left behind his aspirations to be a baseball player in 1970 and became a musician. In his home state of Delaware he put together his band The Destroyers, then moved to Boston and set about making the best blues, played loud with truckloads of passion that he possibly could. They released their debut album in 1977, learning their craft, polishing their act, before making their major label debut in 1982 with their Bad To The Bone album. This album featured covers of great songs by the Isley Brothers, Chuck Berry, and Bob Dylan but also Thorogood’s trademark song Bad To The Bone. The song didn’t explode to start with, but slowly grew and grew. The song was progressively used in more film making and television productions: the opening of the movie Christine, as well as in Terminator 2, The Parent Trap, Megamind, and in the South Park episode ‘You’re Not Yelping’ and so much more. Thorogood continued to perform and release music, fully becoming the role of the master of good time rocking blues.
