George Thorogood - Ride Til I Die
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

George Thorogood - Ride Til I DieMr. Bad to the Bone hasn’t done anything good for years. The blues-rock guitarist is often dismissed by blues purists for his formulaic approach to the ’50s Chicago blues style pioneered by Elmore James and Hound Dog Taylor. Thorogood’s latest includes covers of Taylor’s “She’s Gone” as well as Bo Diddley’s “You Don’t Love Me, You Don’t Care” and the John Lee Hooker title track. It’s real meat-and-potatoes stuff—so basic that it leaves you craving blues with a little garnish and some sautéed vegetables.
