Bad to The Bone …

Who on this planet does not know that opening riff followed by the words in the song ‘Bad To The Bone’? Chances are – aliens circling overhead in their spacecraft hear it every time George Thorogood and his Destroyers play it live.

It has been a long and storied career for Thorogood – starting as a hard working solo act making a name for himself on the club scene. John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, The Rolling Stones and Howlin’ Wolf – just a few of the men who influenced George to pick up a guitar and start playing.

15 million albums sales and more than 8,000 live shows later – George has released his first solo record paying respect to all the Blues guys that influenced hm.

Rick Keene Music Scene – The Guess Who’s Original Drummer Garry Petersen Talks Music and The New Guess Who Album

Garry Petersen knows good music.

Aside from the fact Garry started drumming before Rock n Roll was a ‘thing’ – Petersen also was part of one of the biggest selling Rock bands of all time.

The Guess Who,at one point, were outselling The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. Not bad for a guy (and band) from Winnipeg Manitoba.

Fast forward to 2018 and Garry ( who – along with original bassist Jim Kale own the rights to the Guess Who name) is hoping to grab North America by storm once again.

The current line-up of The Guess Who (a non-stop touring unit who have never ceased playing ) are poised to release a brand new album in September.

Please listen below to part one of my chat with Garry and stay tuned for part two along with my chat with lead singer and guitarist Derek Sharp.
