"Hard Stuff" by George Thorogood & The Destroyers

Early in his career, George Thorogood & The Destroyers released a couple albums with Rounder Records.  Why would a Folk label sign a rock act?  Well, it might have something to do with Mr. Thorogood’s sense of tradition: He covered Hank Williams, Bo Diddley, Johnny Cash, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Carl Perkins, and Elmore James on those early records, and he still covers his favorite Blues and Country artists.  It’s Roots Rock as interpreted by the ultimate bar band.

That being said, my favorite Thorogood songs are the originals.  You’ve heard “Bad To The Bone” and “Get A Haircut” at least eleventy billion times by now, but have you heard “Hard Stuff”?  Someday, when I find the perfect bar, this is the song I’ll play on the jukebox as I finish killing my liver.
