Thorogood will release The Hard Stuff on May 30 and describes the album as a kitchen sink record because, after this, theres nothing left.
He says when he started out in 1972, he had a list of obscure songs that he wanted to make famous. Now, 34 years later, he says theres no obscure music left. Theres access to everything.
Thorogood notes the new album will give him new songs to play at his shows but figures it will mark the end of one stage of his career and the beginning of another.
And, this time, he may be wearing a cowboy hat.
As he puts it, People always ask me what will happen if Im too old to rock and I say, Play country music.
