What's also surprising are the musical lengths the 59-year-old rocker will go to to make her happy. Like most American girls her age, Thorogood's daughter isn't immune to the power of the Jo Bros, and being a good dad, he'll be sitting through one of their shows. "We got tickets for the Jonas Brothers this summer and she's cool about that," he says.
The father-daughter bond the two share goes deeper than just music though, as the two have a mutual love for comedy, including an appreciation for some shows every parent knows. "I like the 'I Carly' stuff. It's well done, the humor is funny, usually got a good message to it," he says. "The hotel suite with the twins ['The Suite Life of Zack and Cody'], that's like a junior Marx Brothers, lot of action, lot of moving around, lot of slapstick comedy, that was good. 'Raven' is very good, very talented, she's like the young Lucille Ball, always in trouble, always in a jam. I like that 'Wizards of Waverly Place' thing, that's kind of interesting, cause it's got some science fiction in it, which I dig. These shows are so much better now for the kids that they see. Kids are so far ahead of it now it's unbelievable, but she has good taste."
Being George Thorogood's daughter, that taste definitely goes off the beaten path, especially when it comes to someone that young. "What she was knocked out by more than anything was hearing Elvin Bishop's band," he says. "She said when she has her 13th birthday party she wants Elvin Bishop's band."
Thorogood should be very proud, as he is obviously raising her right. "I hope so," he says. "And she's helping raise me as well. 'Daddy, don't eat your soup with a fork,' and 'Not those shoes.'"
