George Thorogood is coming to the House of Blues on March 8, and we're giving away two pairs of tickets to whoever wants to see "Bad to the Bone" in the flesh. And, FYI, here's a bit of trivia about that song: It wasn't a huge hit when it was released.
As Thorogood told the Houston Press, "[Bad to the Bone] it didn't take off right away. We released it in'82, and it
wasn't until about 1992 that people really started to jump on it. They
started something called rock classic radio, and prior to that it got
little to no attention. It was just another song in the show. And then
when [classic] rock radio started happening in the early '90s, that
became one of the staples."
All you have to do to win tickets is leave us a message on Heard Mentality's Twitter (@ocweeklymusic) and/or Facebook with your name and email address!
Winners will be notified next Wednesday at noon; tickets will be held at will call.
