#FridayFive: George Thorogood and the Destroyers

They had a huge hit in the early 80s with Bad to the Bone. But if that’s the only George Thorogood and the Destroyers track in your iTunes library, you’re missing some of their best work.

Here are my five favorites:

  1. One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer
  2. Bad to the Bone
  3. You Talk to Much
  4. I Drink Alone
  5. If You Don’t Start Drinkin’ (I’m Gonna Leave)

And as a bonus, I have to suggest his cover of Who Do You Love?, which is fantastic.

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
