George Thorogood Will Be Featured in New Rock Hall Exhibit
George Thorogood will be honored with a new exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.
Launching Tuesday, December 12, the exhibit will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Band.
Some of the items featured in the exhibit include: Thorogood’s Gibson ES-125TDC electric guitar and his custom faux snakeskin jacket, the late Hank Carter’s Selmer Super Action Series II alto saxophone, the Checker Marathon roof sign from the taxi the band drove during their 50 States/50 Dates tour, and a speaker that was part of the band’s original P.A. system.
“For the past fifty years, we’ve spent nearly every night making music,” Thorogood shares. “According to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, we were also making history. Our heart and soul have been in this since day one; rock fans recognize that. The band and I are enormously humbled by this honor.”
