George Thorogood is stuck in the past, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Thorogood and his Delaware Destroyers blazed through 35 years of hits in more than 90 minutes at Texas Station’s Dallas Events Center on April 30, with the singer/guitarist paying his three-chord respects to inspirations such as Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker and Bo Diddley throughout. Thorogood gave the middle-aged crowd what they came for: He performed originals such as “I Drink Alone,” “Bad to the Bone” and “You Talk Too Much,” while also delivering his classic covers of “Who Do You Love?,” “Move It on Over” and “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer.” While Thorogood has been producing his same brand of raunchy bar-band rock since first picking up a guitar, it’s obvious that his fans wouldn’t have it any other way.
