George Thorogood Taking A Gamble On Acoustic Set

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – George Thorogood isn’t a gambling man, but that doesn’t mean he’s not willing to take a gamble on his next CD.

Thorogood is currently touring casinos around the country with his band The Destroyers, and working on his next CD, which he says might feature several acoustic songs.

Thorogood says he’d love to try preforming on an acoustic guitar during live shows, but admits he’s not sure how his fans would react to the “pure rock ‘n’ roller” going soft – but it’s a bet he’s willing to take.

Says Thorogood: “I’ve had so many people ask me about playing acoustic...I’ve never done it before so I might as well try it once.”

Although Thorogood throws caution to the wind when he’s onstage, one place you won’t find him is at the slot machines or craps table between gigs.

He explains: “I work way too hard for my money to just throw it away so fast. I save my energy for the shows.”
