George Thorogood was invited to perform at a party in my wife's parents' basement during her high school years in Wilmington, Delaware. George and my wife were classmates at Brandywine High School although he was a year behind my wife. They both were in Mr. Pro's World History class where my wife became aware of George's musical talents and she invited him to perform at her party.

The party was during the winter of 1965, my wife invited her friends ... including her boyfriend at the time ... and George performed with his original band. My father-in-law took this brief home movie of his daughter's party, hardly realizing that the band would become famous. George and his band are playing in the basement corner and he can be seen with his tambourine when the video pauses for a few seconds. Incidentally, when George started his career the band was called The DELAWARE Destroyers.

My wife is the tall brunette in the final frames wearing the red sheath dress, her former boyfriend is known to both of us via facebook and my wife and I are making plans to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary in 2012.
