Thorogood celebrates 25 years of 'Bad'

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- Delaware's George Thorogood said he never thought the 25th anniversary of his signature song, "Bad to the Bone," would be a big deal.

"It was just an album track, just another song in the show as far as I was concerned," said Thorogood, who credits radio programmers with putting the song on the map.

"Classic rock radio was just starting out, and I've had 50 percent of all the classic rock stations across Canada and the United States say they've used 'Bad to the Bone,' 'Rock 'n Me' by Steve Miller, a handful of others as the foundation of classic rock.

"I didn't know that would be the case at the time, but I'm not complaining. Sometimes you don't know something will click until after it's over."

Thorogood and his band, the Destroyers, are celebrating the anniversary with "Bad to the Bone: 25th Anniversary Edition," which adds seven tracks to the original 10, six of them fresh recordings of album cuts, including the title track.
