Once a budding baseball player, George Thorogood decided in the '70s to trade his bat for a microphone, and the rest is history -- well, almost. Over the years, Thorogood has endeared himself to fans as a blues-rock underdog, popular for tunes just shy of the big time, such as "I Drink Alone." An exception is the '82 hit "Bad to the Bone," which dominated MTV in its early days and has since shown up everywhere from "Terminator 2" to "Married … with Children." Thorogood performs with his band The Destroyers at Toad's Place Sunday, Aug. 26. Doors at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25-$30. Call (800) 514-3849 or visit www.toadsplacerva.com. S
