INDIO, CA - APRIL 26: George Thorogood and The Destroyers perform onstage during day three of 2015 Stagecoach, California's Country Music Festival, at The Empire Polo Club on April 26, 2015 in Indio, California.

Man what a blast our 35th Anniversary concert was last night at Pine Knob! While we were broadcasting backstage, George Thorogood stopped by to say hello!

While broadcasting live backstage, Big Jim, Dave and myself were joined by the one and only George Thorogood. George was so fired up to be back at Pine Knob he stayed with the boys for 15 minutes, talking everything Rock n Roll and Detroit.

Here is our interview with the great, George Thorogood!

After George spoke with us, he took the stage for over an hour playing all of his great music and getting the crowd fueled and fired up for Sammy and the Circle.

One thing we noticed about George was his shirt. He was wearing a J Giels Band shirt and was proud of it! George also touched on what Detroit and Pine Knob means to him, he continued to talk about how it was always Pine Knob and would never be called anything else!

One thing I noticed during our time with him was how pumped he was just to be playing music still. He said he could go back to playing at the car wash and that would be okay with him, which I thought was pretty cool seeing the success he has had.

The night overall was a major success and that’s because of you! All of the fans and listeners that showed up and rocked out for our Birthday made the night!

Something else that made the night was Doni trying to slide down the Hill! Sorry Doni, I have to share this video any chance I get!
