The Delaware native started out with hopes of hitting it big in major league baseball. He was a semi-professional ball player before focusing his efforts towards music after watching a performance by blues legend, John P. Hammond, in 1970. Thorogood released his debut album, George Thorogood & The Destroyers, in 1976 and released the acclaimed Move It On Over in 1978. While recording and touring, Thorogood continued to play second-base in the Roberto Clemente baseball league until his bandmates forced him to quit the sport and focus full-time on the music. After receiving the "Rookie of the Year Award" from the league, Thorogood quit and the band released Better than the Rest, in 1979.
