    Saw the lads three times with Bon Scott, about 20 times otherwise. Was checking this out and it reminded me of seeing them in the Waldorf in San Francisco:

    I didn't see them this last tour. Tickets have undergone a paradigm change; they sell out and not to the locals. Screw you and your $300 nose bleed seats, because I saw AC/DC up close with Bon. F and you know what else....

    You liked them before they became cool, right?

    AC/DC is one of the greatest rock bands of all time. I'm jealous, I've never seen them live and probably never will.

    The Highway to Hell is too sultry for leather trousers.

    Bon Scott rules. His influence can be heard to this day.

    Does no one notice that most of the mention of AC/DC greatness is either before Back in Black... Or ONLY Back in Black? Everything I've heard them put out since has been rubbish. They can't even cover their own stuff anymore!

    One of my favorite bands also; unpretentious hard rock at it's best. I saw them 3 times in the early eighties, twice at Hammersmith Odeon (what a venue!) on the BiB tour and again in '84 at Castle Donington in the FTATR tour when incidentally, Van Halen played there last UK gig. Recently a work colleague offered me a ticket to see them at Wembley Stadium but I couldn't make it - apparently they were awesome.

    I saw them in the eighties as well. I think it was 86' fly on the wall tour.

    Great show! Deafening cannon volley (for those about to rock). During Hells bells buddy is banging on the bell w/a sledge hammer.Too cool!
    Angus w/knickers and all. It was really a memorable show.

    yes, they were like Iron Maiden, who in my amazing opinion lost it when Paul Di'Anno was kicked out, same with AC/DC, there was a simply only one Bonn Scott.

    i dedicate this to the forum members, why cant our American friends produce a decent metal band? who can tell?

    They play basically one song with minor variations. But they do it well.
