Lmao When frank locked every one infected in the bathroom
On this day: Immediately after surviving a three-way dance against The Sandman and Stevie Richards to earn an ECW Title match with Raven, Terry Funk catches the Champion with a small package following interference from Raven’s Nest and Tommy Dreamer to win the ECW World Heavyweight Championship. (4/13/97)
Ronald Belford “Bon” Scott (1946-1980) was named the greatest frontman in the history of Rock’n’Roll by Rolling Stone. I agree.
-Angus used to ride Bon’s shoulders during shows. They did it quite a bit, actually. (It helps that Angus is a tiny little fucker).
-From their Teenage Years onward, all of the Young Brothers had a fondness for pissing off people that told to “turn it down”.
-AC/DC has never had a problem with Explosives. Their live shows usually end with a LOT of cannon fire.
-High Voltage was rereleased in America as a compilation of the two previous albums, which were only released in Australia. All of songs that didn’t make the cut for the American are awesome, and all of the songs on the American Release are awesome. I suggest getting all three, because there is some overlap, but all of it is worth it.
-“Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap” needs no other explanation.
-My personal favorite album.
-They used to say they’re the only band powered by AC/DC. Angus is a lively dude too, so it makes sense.
-That didn’t even slow Angus down. Remember: Angus is maybe like, 5 feet tall. But, he’s got enough rock inside of him to fill a stadium. Consequently, all five feet of him is pure, concentrated Hard Rock. And it’s in a purer form than in anyone else. So, a guitar jammed through his chest will only make him play louder and harder.
-I like that Bon’s last album was just as awesome as his first. It’s become his enduring legacy, and it’s the most well known of that era.
-the statue of Bon is in Australia. I like that the statue is of him standing on an Amplifier, wearing his Australian Tuxedo.
AC/DC has never pretended to be anything that they’re not. And you know what? The music is hard, heavy, fast, and fun. And it’s happy. It’s happy rock.
If the praise of their peers means anything, think of this:
Lemmy Kilmeister, Tony Iommi, James Hetfield, Ozzy Osbourne, Scott Ian, Eddie Van Halen, and Jimmy Page all consider Angus and Malcolm Young to be amongst the greatest guitarists of all time.
There is a REASON they sell out stadiums.
There is a REASON their songs are 4 minutes long at the most. It is because they kick you in the ear like a thunderstorm of rock.
It’s because they have distilled Rock’n’Roll down to its purest, most enjoyable form. And Angus’ famous duck walk move? He does that as an homage to Chuck Berry.
