I thank and blame these two men for everything I knew and used in my former career as a guitar slinger. Brian Setzer turned me on to Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran, and George Thorogood hipped me to Bo Diddley and Hound Dog Taylor. I was never the same afterwards. The three-time Grammy-winning Setzer is one of the greatest guitar players of our time. And through his talent has spear-headed resurrections of two American genres: rockabilly with The Stray Cats, and swing with his 18-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra. Setzer is on the road now bringing his latest Rockabilly Riot! tour with a stripped down trio. The twang will have nowhere to hide.
With gravelly vocals, a wisecracking stage personae, and an equally rough 'n' tough guitar tone, George Thorogood gets down to the very heart of the blues. Six Gold- and two Platinum-selling albums stand as proof. It's slide guitar that rocks, and it'll give you the boogie in your sox.
