George Thorogood and the Destroyers offered their wisdom to the Rockit Academy
George Thorogood and the Destroyers offered their wisdom and insight to young musicians from the Rockit Live Foundation on September 27, 2019 at The Count Basie Center in New Jersey. This is an ongoing event for the Foundation and George as he and the band met teens who are interested in the music industry. The fun began with a thunderous soundcheck and closed with a Q&A from one of Rock’s best. Thank you, George and staff! A big thank you to the Guitar Center Music Foundation.
