I have fired AC/DC

Postby GoogaMooga » 11 Jan 2022, 13:17

Australia's most famous band, the hard rockin' AC/DC, are loved the world over. They even survived the death of their frontman, and took on another that was just as popular. All through the years, there was also Angus Young, in his school uniform, like a steady anchor, thrashing that lead guitar. I am not too well versed in them, but the two frontmen, Bon Scott and Brian Johnson, sound like they are passing very hard and constipated stool, and while the band certainly had their moments, such as "Dirty Deeds" and "Back in Black", I just get stressed out when I play them nowadays. I was never really big on hard rock, but I do have a smattering of that genre, and - count them - 18 CD's by AC/DC, incl. the scarce "T.N.T." album. I wouldn't say I have outgrown them, because they have cross-generational appeal, but I am at a different point in life, so it's time to purge AC/DC from the collection. Ironically, I am playing Rainbow as I write this post; I find them more varied and melodic, while still retaining a good measure of testosterone-fueled power.

I love a bit of hard rock me Googs.

I like AC/DC as much now as I did when I first saw them in the 70s.

They are what they are. Double entrendres and sometimes puerile - but what the hell - they still make me smile!

I saw them on their last tour, at Wembley, with Malcolm (RIP) they were excellent!

Coincidentally, I played this today which I reckon is their second or third best

In conclusion, they are not my favourite band but nonetheless always hit the spot when necessary.

Give the dog a bone with some backseat rhythm......?

Not 'arf!

I don't think I have heard "Switch", but whatever rocks your boat, is fine.

They're a lot more fun than Rainbow.

Rock'n'roll ain't noise pollution!
