Mastering the art of music begins with the desire to make a connection with a listener. To blend experience into a riff that's been mimicked more times than Deep Purple's Smoke on the Water. Guys and their guitars. It's a love affair of the heart. That requires a lot of guts to rip from the corners of a private place and give it away to the awaiting world. Unafraid but completely humble. Grateful and deeply dedicated. There's a place in music history where fans bend at the knees and become extremely weak. Knowing their guitar hero is but inches away from jumping on stage. His name is George Thorogood.
