Wachtel produced the 1997 George Thorogood recording Rockin' My Life Away. Wachtel reportedly had gone to see Thorogood play and subsequently decided he wanted to work with him. "Waddy Wachtel, as you know, has this great body of work from the 70s,'80s and'90s. He's everybody's guy. It came to my attention that he wanted to work with me. I never knew about his work until he worked with Keith Richards," said Thorogood in an online interview. "I said 'Keith with a studio musician? I don't know about that.' But Waddy is a unique case and I went to see the Expensive (sic) Winos live and he supplied the guitar on that tour. I said 'okay, this is kinda funky, this makes it.' I met him and the problem was shutting the two of us up (laughter) to get us to play the music. It was like finding this long lost soul brother that you'd lost around 13 or 14 years of age. His whole childhood was mirrored of mine, completely. The difference between us is that he mastered the guitar. He's another genius."
