"You are the best poster... do not let anyone say otherwise."


Any news about AC/DC is pretty depressing nowadays so it's quite appropriate that the thread is too.

Oh yeah, that guy is totally straight. I saw a whole thing about him on the VH1.

I mean let’s be honest, they’re pretty much done. But at least they had one of the most consistent runs in rock n roll.

Angry Anderson of Rose Tattoo says Angus told him that Axl is in the band:

quote:

Mark: You’re right people are listening to that great music again, listening to Rose Tattoo, AC/DC, Zeppelin, it’s all coming round again, kids are rediscovering great music.

Angry: Exactly, I was talking to Angus earlier last year when we were doing the encores and we were opening for Guns ‘n’ Roses but Angus and I were asked to do the encores and I said to him “What are you going to do?” and he said “Mate I’m writing a new album.” I thought “Cool” so I asked him who was in the band and he said “Axl.” Brian’s not there, Phil’s not there, Cliff’s not there, sadly Malcolm’s not there. And there are these people, and yes it’s sad that the original line-up aren’t there anymore but it’s the songs, people who have supported them all the way through their career they want to hear the songs. And in a sense we owe that to people, so really it’s a debt of gratitude and what we’re saying is you’ve stood by us, we’ll stand by you. So Angus, and let’s face it he doesn’t need the money, he acknowledges that there are still millions of people around the world that want to hear AC/DC songs played live. In the same way, though on a much lesser scale obviously there are plenty of people around the world who want to hear the songs that made Rose Tattoo famous. They want to hear those songs played live. And this is a line-up that can do that.

Well this certainly makes me feel better about Angus stubbornly refusing to throw in the towel

I guess Brian just decided to say "gently caress my eardrums, I don't need to hear anyways"

He may only be doing studio work.

Also, there was an experimental in-ear monitor he tested that had the potential to protect his hearing onstage.

The situation is unclear ATM...

I think theyll go ahead and perhaps record another album. I dont think I can see him come back to the stage, if there wouldve been a possibility to do so he wouldnt have left it in the first place. More or less gonna be stuck with Axl for now.

That's what I figured after thinking about it for a while

I never did get to see the band with Axl, but I was opposed to the idea, mostly because it seemed like they hosed Brian over pretty badly. I dunno how I feel about album singer/touring singer, but I'll still buy the album the day it comes out, of course
