George Thorogood destroys South Lake Tahoe

Photographer’s notebook: “Move it on Over” because George Thorogood & The Destroyers are still badder than ever. There was a great atmosphere and fantastic music at the South Shore Room in Harrah’s Lake Tahoe. Thorogood played to an enthusiastic crowd that seemed to know the lyrics to every song. I hadn’t seen Thorogood in more than 30 years and his voice and energy was still just as good as back in the day. That’s saying a lot for someone who has been playing for more than four decades and has played 8,000-plus live shows. The songs he played was like listening to “The Best of George Thorogood & The Destroyers” CD. There’s no new musical ground being broken here, just good-old, consistent American boogie blues, which is what his longtime enthusiastic fans came to hear. Thorogood made a few remarks pertaining to Tahoe such as “Stateline Nevada, best kept secret ever!” And added to the lyrics “Coming back to Tahoe till the day I die!” in “Gear Jammer.” Thorogood continues to be the consummate performer. It was a fantastic show.
