1. Origins of AC/DC

[Info taken from 'Shock To The System' by Mark Putterford]   
   AC/DC formed in late 1973 in Sydney, Australia. They played their
gig on New Years Eve at Sydney's Chequers nightclub. The band
of Malcolm Young, Angus Young, drummer Colin Burgess, bassist Larry
Kriedt, and vocalist Dave Evans. Malcolm decided to form the band
spending a couple of years in the Newcastle band Velvet Underground 
(not the US band). AC/DC released one single with Evans as singer
In The Parlour/Can I Sit Next To You Girl".
   AC/DC went through several lineup changes during their 
formative period, the most important was when Bon Scott went from
the bands driver, to their singer, in 1974. He replaced Dave Evans,
apparently was a bit too "glam" for the Youngs.

3. Atlantic Records Bio's of band members

Here's biographies of the band members that Atlantic printed in music 
books published in the 1979/1980 timeframe. These are from the
record company, so take them with a grain of salt:

Angus Young - Born March 31, 1959 [note: see item 4, "Angus' Age"]
(Aries the Ram) in Glasgow, Scotland. Angus and his brother Malcolm
co-founded AC/DC almost ten years ago. On stage Angus still wears his
schoolboy uniform (shorts and striped socks included), while playing
a superb electric guitar. He's especially well known for his vivid 
onstage mannerisms - he won't miss a note while roaming, falling, 
kicking, running, writhing, and sweating...a complete showman! Angus
co-authors all of AC/DC's music with Malcolm and Bon.

Bon Scott - Born July 9, 1946 (Cancer the Crab) in Kirnmuir, Scotland.
Ronald Belford Scott, the prolific writer of AC/DC's lyrics, had been
with various rock and R&B groups as singer/drummer before joining
In addition to playing, Bon worked as a chauffeur for other groups. It
was in this later capacity that he first met the other members of
who felt he sang better than he drove! Bon is responsible for touching
our hearts with such tributes as "The Jack" and "Whole Lotta Rosie"
developing into one of the best frontmen in rock.

Malcolm Young - Born January 9, 1953 (Capricorn the Goat) in Glasgow. 
Often called the innovator and "brains" behind AC/DC, Malcolm plays
airtight powerchord rhythm guitar. The other band members have
him "Riffmaker", since his writing talent has been largely credited
supplying AC/DC with its inimitable, intense sound. Malcolm played
several bands in Sydney (the family having emigrated to Australia)
waiting quite literally - for Angus to finish school so they could
their band.

Phil Rudd - Born May 19, 1954 (Taurus the Bull) in Melbourne,
Phil releases his tensions by drumming. He received his early musical 
training in local Melbourne bands before taking up with AC/DC. Phil is
also car-crazy, and he holds various certificates from England's Brand
Hatch race track. His obsessions with automobiles extends to driving
band around when on tour, and he even carries a portable electric
racing set with him (which has been set up in Holiday Inns across the 
globe). "Driving" also describes Phil's drumming, and his expert
provides the rhythmic backbone for AC/DC.

Cliff Williams - Born December 14, 1949 (Sagitarius the Archer) in
England. Cliff is the newest member of AC/DC. He was chosen over 50
bass players at auditions held in London last year. In the past he has
performed with such British groups as Home and Bandit. Angus says he
selected not for his musical ability, but because his good looks would
sure to bring in women -  a pastime the entire band shares

Brian Johnson - Born October 5, 1947 (Libra the Balance) in Newcastle,
England. Brian, formerly of the English 70's rock band Geordie, fits
comfortably into the group as its lead vocalist and newest member. His
Northeastern England accent, wild humor and cap are already
along with his heavy, raw edged vocals to which the crowds have given
rousing approval.

4. Angus' Age

[Info taked from 'Shock To The System' by Mark Putterford]   

Angus's year of birth was publicized as 1959 to play into the
image. This would have made him 15 years old when the band formed in
1974. However, his real year of birth is 1955. He did leave school at
age of 15, but didn't join AC/DC until 1973, when he was 18.

5. Bon Scott - Pre AC/DC

 Ask the average Australian to name some famous people who have come
Perth and the chances are that they'll name either sports stars or
tycoons.  Yet one of Perth's adopted sons was for a while in the late
every bit as much a crowd puller as those sports stars.  As lead
singer of
AC/DC Bon Scott would regularly perform to thousands of people each
in the stadiums and concert halls of America and Europe.  But it's a
way to the top in the world of rock and roll and Bon Scott's road to
top began with the Perth band the Valentines in 1966.

  The Valentines got together around the middle of 1966.  Their
linup was Bon Scott and Vince Lovegrove sharing vocal duties, Ted Ward
on rythym guitar, Bruce Abbott on bass guitar, Wyn Milson on lead
and drummer Warrick Findlay.  In Scott and Lovegrove they had two
focal points and within just weeks of their live debut they had crowds
flocking to their shows at such venues as Canterbury Court and the 
Swanbourne Surf Livesaving Club (affectionately known as the

  It didn't take long for their popularity to come to the notice of
Clarke who operated Perth's only record label in the 1960's, Clarion.
Valentines were duly signed to Clarion in March 1967 and released
first single a couple of months later, still less than a year since
formed.  That single comprised of Arthur Alexander's "Everyday I Have
Cry" backed with "I Can't Dance With You", a song from one of
fastest rising groups of the time, the Small Faces.  The record,
enough, sold very well in Perth, reaching the Top 5.

  Single No.2 was released in August 1967.  The top side was a Stevie
Wright/George Young (Easybeats) composition entitled "She Said".
similar in some ways to areas that the Beatles were then exploring,
single failed to capture the record buying public's imagination and
made the lower end of the Perth charts.

  Nevertheless the 3rd single for Clarion was released in February
"I Can Hear The Raindrops" and "Why Me?" were both Lovegrove/Ward 
compositions.  Promoted as a double A side release the record made
30 on the Perth charts but once again failed to chart elsewhere.

  Despite a report in April 1968 that the Valentines were to join the
Sunshine label, this move never eventuated.  Their fourth and final
for Clarion was released some three months later, and once again it
was a
composition from the Easybeats camp.  "Peculiar Hole In The Sky" was
by Harry Vanda and George Young and produced on Martin Clarke's behalf
Paul Aulton.  The flip side "Love Makes Sweet Music" was origially the
single ever released by avant-guarde British The Soft Machine.  It was
brought to the Valentine's attention by Stan Rofe, the doyed of
disk jockeys in the latter half of the 1960's.

  Represented on this disc are those four singles as well as a
unreleased track, "Sooky, Sooky".  In 1970 they broke up.  After
in line-up Bon went on to Fraternity and later to AC/DC.  Vince worked
as a writer for pop music weekly before moving on to become a
to a current affairs television programme.  More recently he was
of the Divinyls before parting company with them in 1986.

  In their heyday the Valentines were dismissed as being blatantly
"Bubblegum", a label they were quick to dismiss.  Listen to this
judge for yourselves.  Hopefully the next time someone metions the
Valentine you won't think of February 14th but you will think of some
fine music from the late 1960's [sic].

******************More Liner Notes*************************

[Thanks to Doug Fierro <>]

I ran across a CD recently titled "Bon Scott- The early Years
1968-1972" and
of course I had to buy it. This is a CD, not vinyl (more info about it

  I don't know how many of you hear stuff from The Valentines, Bon
first big band in Australia, but it sounds NOTHING like AC/DC.  The
is categorized as "bubble-gum" 60s music, which is right about on
Stumbling across the music on this CD is like digging up old pictures
your parents wearing hideous clothing when they were younger.  The
from Fraternity is better though. 

 The CD contains two written pieces, the second posted by Steve Rhoads
here a while ago.  It also has an interview of Bon Scott by David Day
5KA in Adelaide, Australia (any Oz natives know if that station still
exists?); Bon was pretty drunk and it wasn't a long interview anyway.

Liner notes by Glenn A. Baker

I  encountered  Bon  Scott a number  of times  during  the 70's and
meeting served to increase my incredulity that performer's  public
could be so at odds with his real  personality.  Bon  really was a
man.  He was warm,  friendly and  uncommonly  funny.  He did not
fire,  pluck  wings  off flies or eat  children  whole.  And  while
daunting stage persona of lacivious  leers and blood  curdling howls
by no means fraudulent, it was most certainly a professional  cloak
could be worn at convenient moments.

When Bon had replaced  Dave Evans as leader of AC/DC at the end of
he was already a bona-fide Oz Rock veteran, with two stints in
hit bands under his belt.  In one he had been a fluffy,  gossamered
idol, in the other a cosmic, hirsute, heavily philosophical  hippie.
the time he climbed into working class denim he must have been
no  small  identity   crisis.  Yet  he  was  never  anything  less
convincing in any of his musical roles.

A  rough'n'tumble  Scotsman,  Bon first came to  prominence  in
hottest 60's pop sensations, The Valentines.  Like Adelaide's
the band  fronted  two lead  singers  - Bon and Vince  Lovegrove
manager of the Divinyls)- and was adept in the manipulation of
teenies.  After some rudimentary recordings for Perth's Clarion label
1967-68, The Valentines  moved base to Melbourne  where they joinged
Zoot and New Dream as frontrunners in a bubblegum pop boom.

Yet, although there was an undeniable chirping  commerciality  about
Valentines  Melbourne  recordings,  there was also a solid, rocking
which rendered them appealing and more than  credible.  The band cut
tracks  for Ron  Tudor's  June  Productions,  which  were  leased to
Philips  label.  Two of those  six  (which  constitute  side one of
record) - Harry  Vanda & George  Young's "My Old Man's A Groovy Old
and the original  Juliette-  became moderate  national hits.  The
was an early example of Bon's strong, expressive voice.

At the dawn of the 70's rock music was becoming  inexorably  'heavy'
the days of bands like the Valentines were obviously numbered.  Not
a  heavily-publicised  drug bust could rescue the band's limp image.
the  middle  of  1970 it was  all  over  and Bon was in  Sydney
together a new band with remnants of Levi Smith's Clefs.  Fraternity
a  quantum  leap for the  adaptable  singer,  who grew a  beard,
leather sandals and no doubt developed a taste for brown rice.

Offered  management and financial  support by  businessman  Hamis
Fraternity  moved to South Australia where, as Vince Lovegrove

I noticed that I own something which you did not list in your
discography of Bon Scott's pre-AC/DC career.  It's called "Bon Scott
The Spektors" and it's a CD E.P. released in 1992 by See For Miles
(SEACD 6).

The Spektors were Bon's first major band (this was about 1966), before
joined The Valentines-- Bon played drums and also sang.  This CD

vocals on
this, but he *may* have sang backing vocals)

*************Info on new Bon Scott single*****************

[The following info is taken without permission from the website of
 Head Office Records -

BON SCOTT 'Round And Round And Round'

   Bon's back! Two new songs, three tracks. one CD single
 - released October-20 - the closest thing you're ever likely to 
hear to the solo album he talked about but never got the chance to 
complete. Now re-produced for the Nineties.

"Round And Round And Round" and "Carey Gully" are the last two songs 
Bon Scott committed to tape a month before joining AC/DC and the only 
released from a three year period in his career between Fraternity's 
"Flaming Galah" in April 1972 and AC/DC's "Baby Please Don't Go" in 
March 1975.

In their original form, the tracks are genuine Australian long lost 
'Basement Tapes", recorded a few months after Bon's motorbike 
accident. Recently re-discovered, both "Round And Round And Round" 
and "Carey Gully" have been extensively reworked to create musical 
pieces which the project's collaborators believe Bon would have been 
proud of.

As an occasional member of The Mount Lofty Rangers, a South Australian
collective of creative artists and musicians, Bon Scott recorded these
two compositions by the group's musical director Peter Head in July 

Peter Head recently teamed up with producer Ted Yanni, another old 
friend of Bon's. Using the best technology available, Ted isolated 
the original vocal track from "Round And Round". and then over many 
months rebuilt an entirely new backing to the song, so it sounds as 
though it was recorded today rather than yesterday The original 
version is also included on the CD single. It features former members 
of Headband and Fraternity.

"Carey Gully", a lilting country-flavoured ballad has been tastefully 
augmented with strings - the Classically Blue String Quartet. The 
song celebrates the Mount Lofty Rangers' stomping ground at the time, 
then home to one of South Australia's leading artists. Vytas Serelis, 
whose stunning photo portraits grace the CD cover.

The whole project has been achieved by many people - musicians and 
technicians donating time, talent and studios in order to pay tribute 
to an old friend. The result is one of the best recordings available 
by Bon Scott displaying a side to his vocal ability that wasn't as 
evident in subsequent releases.

"Round And Round And Round" is only available as a single for 
$10; from October 20, and there are no plans to release it on 
an album. Get it while you can, because it may not be there tomorrow.

Bon Scott before AC/DC by Vince Lovegrove

What you could hold in your hot little hands is a labour of 
love. A twenty two year labour of love. And a vindication of fate. 
A twist of fate, a drunken spat, a motorbike accident, a long 
recuperation, a time of reflection for Bon Scott. Two decades ago. 
It happened in Adelaide, the Cinderella state, the city of churches, 
the only Australian capital that wasn't founded on the backbone of 
the convicts, banished when the English tried to cleanse their 
pristine country of the undesirable lower class. They threw their 
petty criminals out of sight, to the other side of the world, hoping 
they'd stay out of mind. The Scottish tried to get away of their own 
free will, but the Brits wouldn't let them. 
Bon Scott was born in Kirrimur, Scotland, and in the sixties migration
rush to the convict colony on the other side of the world, moved with 
his family, along with thousands of other UK families . 
His rock'n'roll star eventually took him to Adelaide, and what 
happened before and after is well documented in many books, many 
fanzines, and in the fertile minds of many highly imaginative 
journalists. But one of the most formative pieces of the Bon Scott 
jigsaw legend happened during this period, 1974 , whilst recuperating 
from his famous motor bike accident. Smashed jaw, broken teeth, gammy 
leg, marriage problems, his age becoming an obstacle in his struggle 
for creative identity, he began to explore his songwriting talents, 
his simplistic mastery of street vernacular, his poetic ability to 
tell a story.
He was creatively encouraged and nurtured during this brief period 
by Adelaide musician Peter Head (nee Beagley) whose optimistic love 
of music and all who embraced it, provided a catalyst for out of work 
or transient musicians in between gigs. Probably the most potent 
incarnation of the melting pot was The Mount Lofty Rangers. 
During a brief 12 to 18 month period, many of Australia's best known 
and least known singers and players passed through the ranks of The 
Mount Lofty Rangers ; Robyn Archer, Jimmy Barnes, Bruce Howe, Chris 
Bailey, Mauri Berg, "Uncle" John Ayers, Swanee, and Bon Scott, being 
just a few. 
Like so many other splinter movements, not much became of the old 
Rangers, now splattered into the anonymity of history's backwash like 
so many before and since. Makes you wonder how many unknown 
meanderings contribute to the mainstream, though. Nevertheless it 
was an outlet for people like Bon Scott to expand, to musically grow, 
to take a breather.
A month before he joined the band that would take his street poetry 
to the world, Bon recorded two songs written by Peter Head. Now based 
in Sydney with his family, still following his philosophy of organic 
musical growth, Peter has treasured the memories of those days and 
recently re-discovered and re-worked the recordings.
With 1996 technology, producer Ted Yanni has devoted almost two years 
to bringing Bon back to life via two previously unheard songs, 
assisted by many like minded friends - musicians and technicians for 
whom this project has been a labour of love.
These are genuine collector's items. Unique. You may have thought 
until now, that you had heard everything Bon Scott recorded 
pre-AC/DC. But what you could have in your hands is the Bon Scott 
you didn't hear. 

Reflect and enjoy. Imagine.

6. Brian Johnson - Pre AC/DC

[Info taken from the Christian Graf Rock Lexicon, Taurus Press,
Germany, and updated by me <>]
   In the early 1970's, Brian Johnson was the singer for a Newcastle,
England band that started out as U.S.A., but soon changed their name 
to Geordie. Geordie released several albums, including: "Hope You Like
(1973), "Don't Be Fooled By The Name" (1974), and "Save The World"
The band was popular in Europe during that time period, but that
soon ended. 
   Geordie broke up, and then a few years later Brian, with a new
lineup, released the album "Featuring Brian Johnson" (1980), which had
reworkings of Geordie songs. Brian also ran a vinyl car roofing
until 1980.

7. Bon Scott - How he died

[Info take from Hell Ain't No Bad Place To Be by Richard Bunton &
				Shock To The System by Mark
   Bon Scott died in February of 1980 in London, England. He choked to
death on his own vomit while sleeping in a friend's car. He and the
friend, a musician named Alisdair Kinnear, had been drinking the
of the 19th and Bon apparently fell asleep during the ride home.
could not wake Bon, so he left him in the car to sleep. Kinnear awoke
in the evening on the 20th, checked on Bon, and found him unconscious
in the 
car. Bon could not be revived, and was pronounced dead. 
   There is another version of this story, examined by Mark Putterford
his Shock To The System book. Putterford's angle questions whether
was really Bon's companion, and suggests heroin may have been involved
Bon's death. 

8. Brian Johnson - How he became AC/DC's singer

[Info take from Hell Ain't No Bad Place To Be by Richard Bunton &
				Shock To The System by Mark
   AC/DC management had been listening to auditions, when they
received a
tape from an AC/DC fan from Chicago, Illinois. The tape contained the
Geordie lp "Hope You Like It", as the fan thought that Brian's sound
be perfect for AC/DC. Management agreed, Brian auditioned, and got the
   Ironically, Bon Scott's pre-AC/DC band "Fraternity" had supported
Geordie on a 1973 European tour, and at that time Bon was very
with the singing of Brian Johnson.

This album contains all known existing tracks of The Marcus Hook Roll
Band - an identity assumed by Harry Vanda & George Young at the very
end of their four year stint in London as session musicians and
independent record producers. Though they had regularly issued
under a string of assumed identities (Haffey's Whiskey Sour,
Paintbox, Band of Hope, Grapefruit, etc.) this was the most extensive
their projects.

The MHRB came together under the hand of ex-Pretty Thing Wally Allen,
managed to wrangle some studio time at Abbey Road. There they cut 5
with their regular retinue of fellow musicians - just prior to
to Australia for a holiday.

Instead of returning to London, Vanda & Young relocated themselves in
Australia and forgot all about the Marcus Hook sessions - until a
message came through from Allen that America was keen on the tracks
wanted more. "We thought it was hilarious" says George, "it had been a
joke to us".

The pair refused to return to London, so Allen visited Australia early
1974 to record another ten tracks. This time, local musicians were
used -
including George's kid brothers Angus & Malcolm (who had not

After repeated requests for a tour to support the product were turned
flat, American interest waned and album release was scrapped (it's
issue being in Australia as 'Tales of Old Grandaddy').

The Marcus Hook tracks follow in the tradition of the best Easybeats'
material - tough, perfectly structured and intelligent. A very
political and social sentiment runs through many of the songs, as does
strong soul/funk influence.

'Natural Man' has become a cult classic, adored for its exhilerating
pop/rock form; while 'Shot In The Head' (originally recorded by
Whiskey Sour and also covered by Savoy Brown) is as close to a theme
as the extraordinary duo have ever penned;

"I've Been 52 years in a rock 'n roll band, ten thousand women on a
night stand. And all I got to show is a hole in my hand, where my
fell through."

2. Remastered US CD releases


NOTE: The remastered versions of AC/DC releases are now available in
Australia. These remasters go one better than the US versions in that
they ALL contain lyrics. (The only US cd's with lyric sheets are
'74JB, DDDDC, FOTW and Ballbreaker).

In 1994, WEA released remastered versions of most of the US AC/DC
on the Atco label. The sound on all of them is superior to the
original cd 
versions which were released on Atlantic. The packaging, for the most
is superior as well. Here is a list with comments, when necessary,
musical & packaging differences in the remasters.

FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK         92412-2  Released 6.21.1994
  The photo from the lp gatefold sleeve is now included.
HIGH VOLTAGE                    92413-2  Released 6.21.1994
DIRTY DEEDS DONE DIRT CHEAP     92414-2  Released 7.19.1994
  This release of DDDDC now contains the longer version of the
  title track, with the extra chorus verses at the end.
BACK IN BLACK                   92418-2  Released 8.23.1994
HIGHWAY TO HELL                 92419-2  Released 9.6.1994
LET THERE BE ROCK               92445-2  Released 9.20.1994
  This release of Let There Be Rock contains the version of Go Down
  that ends cold (with a cool Angus riff), rather than a fade out.
POWERAGE                        92446-2  Released 9.20.1994
  The photo from the lp back cover is now included.
FLICK OF THE SWITCH             92448-2  Released 9.20.1994
IF YOU WANT BLOOD YOU'VE GOT IT 92447-2  Released 10.18.1994
'74 JAILBREAK                   92449-2  Released 10.18.1994
  Unfortunately, Atco didn't include the cool picture of Bon & Angus
  which was on the inner sleeve of the vinyl version. Shame on them...

******* Here are the original newsgroup reviews I wrote back when
        these cd's came out in 1994. Similar info as above but much
        more detail.

JAILBREAK '74    Atco 92449-2
Release Date:    18/10/94

Sound - The sound on this remastered cd is much better than the 
        original. It is louder, more full from top to bottom. Both 
        'Jailbreak' and 'You Ain't Got A Hold On Me' do not fade out 
        early, as on the original cd. This cd is about 10 seconds 
        longer because of this. All 5 songs on this disc sound really 
        good...I especially rocked to 'Soul Stripper'. Ted Jensen 
        remastered this one, and did an excellent job.

Packaging - The packaging on this disc is almost identical to the
        cd. On the plus side, the cd spine is in a format that matches
        the cover art, also the old disclaimer "The compact disc
        blah blah blah' is gone. On the minus side....and this to me
is a 
        BIG minus...the b/w picture of Bon and Angus that was on the
        sleeve of the original LP release was NOT included in the new
        What makes this especially frustrating is that the back page
        the cd insert is totally blank! Space was certainly not the
        here. The original lp was released as a tribute to early Bon,
        that picture was an integral part of the package. It should
        been included in this cd.

Release Date:    18/10/94

Sound - Hot! The sound is fuller and cleaner now, even more powerful 
        than the original cd. The guitar separation is now very
        especially noticable on 'Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be'. It is
        cool listening to Mal and Angus and their guitar interplay.
        really lays down quite a foundation with Cliff and Phil.
        of which, the drums have a real punch to them now, and the
bass is 
        a lot more noticable too. Also...background vocals on 'Rock
And Roll 
        Damnation' come through much stronger, and the the middle part
        'Bad Boy Boogie', with Mal and Angus grooving off each other,
        kicks with the increased separation. Remastered by George
Marino, who 
        did an excellent job.

Packaging -  Done well. The front picture is the same, the back is now
        full page closeup of Angus stubbed, lying on his stomach
        than the small facial shot from the front). The inner sleeve
        black, with white lettering. The spine matches the cd cover 
        lettering, it is orange and in the same font.

Release Date:    21/06/94

Sound - The first thing I noticed about this disc is how LOUD it is
        "Put The Finger On You" screams out of the speakers compared
        the original Atlantic cd. The sound is more full from top to
        bottom. The heavy duty Mutt Lange production really comes
        through. The sound on this disc just blows away the Atlantic
        version, which is a real surprise. I didn't expect a lot of
        difference on this given the care put into the production
        and recording. A pleasant surprise! Re-mastered ( an
        so) by Ted Jensen.

Packaging - The cd is packaged now to re-create the album. Thankfully
        the ugly red lettered spine is gone, the graphics are
        on the whole disc. And on the inside sleeve, the live stage
        from the album gatefold is reproduced...yes! Also, the cd
        has an old style Atco label, similar to the High Voltage/Let
        Be Rock albums.

HIGH VOLTAGE    Atco 92413-2
Release Date:    21/06/94

Sound - The bottom end has really improved on this one. The drums and
        especially the bass have some real punch to them. You can
        notice the difference during "Rock 'n' Roll Singer".
        is so up front and powerful. When Angus and Mark come in after
        Malcolm's opening guitar part, the song really kicks into
        This disc sounds so much better than the Atlantic cd. Get it!
        Again, a fine re-mastering job by Ted Jensen.

Packaging - The front and back are pretty much the same as the
        which was consistent with the album. The spine now matches the
        rest of the package, black lettering on an orange background.
        inside of the insert has a cool orange back color, with the
        old style AC/DC label from the cover in a lighter shade. Also,
        the disc itself has the old style Atco label.

Release Date:    19/07/94

Sound - Fuller from top to bottom. Like High Voltage, much more
        The highlights of this remaster, though, are: 1) The version
        the song "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" is the full length
        version. That is, it has four 'dirty deeds and they're done
        dirt cheap...' refrains at the end, not just two. 2) "Ain't No
        Fun Waitin' Round To Be A Millionaire" is about a minute
        than on the original cd. Yet another excellent re-mastering
        by Ted Jensen.

Packaging - Similar to the Atlantic release. The back is now like the
        album back, and not the close up picture from the Atlantic
        cd. Lyrics are still included, the spine is now custom (black
        lettering on a pinkish red background), and the cd label is
        older style Atco. That is, older than the High Voltage and
        FTATR labels.

BACK IN BLACK    Atco 92418-2
Release Date:    23/08/94

Sound - Well, I didn't think this one would sound much better than the
        Atlantic cd release, but I was wrong! Like FTATR, this cd
        screaming out of the speakers. Soundwise, this kicks ass from
        beginning to end. It's really hard to believe that this could
        sound so much better than the Atlantic cd, but it does! Every-
        thing on this disc hits hard, and combined with the great
        it's a real head snapping time! Remastering - Ted Jensen

Packaging - A re-creation of the album. The front of the insert now
        has the lettering in the same scale as it was on the album,
        the case back lists the songs. On the inside on the insert,
        inner sleeve pictures are recreated on 1 1/2 of the 2 pages,
        while the other 1/2 page has album credits. The spine is black
        with white lettering in the same font as the cover, and the
        label is cd label is older Atco, the same as DDDDC.

HIGHWAY TO HELL    Atco 92419-2
Release Date:    23/08/94

Sound - There is a full range of improvement in the sound on this cd.
        It is not as flat sounding as the Atlantic Highway To Hell
        disc. The bottom end has some real punch, and the guitars on
        top have a great edge. When Phil kicks in at the beginning
        of the title FEEL it! The bass really pumps along
        too. Quite an improvement over the Atlantic cd, thanks to the
        remastering skills of Ted Jensen.

Packaging - Another recreation of the album. The back of the cd case
        has the song titles and credits, the back of the sleeve insert
        has the picture from the album back of the band out on a
        foggy night (Night Prowling, perhaps?). The inside of the
        insert lists credits, and the cd spine is black with yellow
        lettering that matches the cover font.

LET THERE BE ROCK       Atco 92445-2
Release Date:    20/09/94

Sound - I looked at the credits for this, and my first thoughts:
        "uh-oh, they have given the re-mastering responsibilities to
        someone's no longer Ted Jensen, now it's George
        Marino?!?! Why mess with a good thing?" As for "Let There Be
        Rock", I was convinced that not much could be done to improve
        the sound on this disc. But, as on previous releases, I was
        wrong. Somehow, the sound is cleaner...but at the same time
        the music is just as raw and distorted as you remember LTBR
        to be. It really is a better sounding disc. Two specifics:
        1) The annoying crackle in the right speaker at the beginning
        of 'Overdose' is gone and 2)'Go Down' is now about 20 seconds
        longer, and rather than fadeout it ends with some cool riffing
        by Angus. A nice surprise. Excellently re-mastered by George
        Marino (who also mastered The Razors Edge and LIVE).

Packaging - Very similar to the Atlantic cd. The album front and back
        are the cd front and back. A custom lettered spine, black
        with red lettering in the same font as the cover. And they
        must have had some extra money for this disc, as the spine
        sports the AC/DC lightning bolt logo just like the cover.
        Why could't they do this on all the remasters? Also, the
        cd label is old Atco, like High Voltage, etc.

POWERAGE    Atco 92446-2
Release Date:    20/09/94

Sound - This is one I was most looking forward to. Powerage is the
        AC/DC album I played constantly. This was the one that made me
        decide these guys were my favorite band. This disc is now
        exceptionally LOUD! That first crash at the beginning of
        'Rock 'N' Roll Damnation' comes rocking out of the speakers!
        The whole disc sounds great, better than the Atlantic cd,
        which somewhat surprised me as I thought the Atlantic disc
        sounded good until I heard this. Remastered very well by
        George Marino.

Packaging - The big question on the packaging for me was - "Will the
        disc include the album back picture, which was not on the
        original Atlantic cd?" The answer - a resounding yes! That
        great raw picture is on the back of the cd case, and the
        back of the insert. The cover is the same, and the inside
        of the insert has the credits. The spine is black, with
        strangely generic looking white lettering. A nice surprise is
        the cd label, which is the red and green Atlantic label that
        the album had - a nice touch.

FLICK OF THE SWITCH     Atco 92448-2
Release Date:    20/09/94

Sound - There is a subtle, yet noticeable, sound improvement in the
        sound on this disc. It definitely has a more open sound, I
        always felt the Atlantic cd had a very narrow (for lack of
        a better term) sound to it. It really makes this more
        fun to listen to, 'Guns For Hire' really kicks in, it sounds
        great really LOUD! This is a much better recording than most
        people realize, and the improved sound drives that point home.
        A much more powerful sound, re-mastered in "sterling" fashion
        by George Marino.

Packaging - Another re-creation of the album package. The front cover
        is the same as the Atlantic cd, the back of the cd case has
        the song list in the same font as the original album back.
        The inner sleeve has credits, the spine is black - again with
        strangely generic looking lettering. The cd label is an
        early 80's Atlantic label, colored red & black.

Carry Me Home - A song from the DDDDC sessions, which was released on 
the flip side of the Australian 'Dog Eat Dog' single.

Cold Hearted Man - A song from the Powerage sessions, that found its

bonus single to the LP version of an Australian box set that contained
first 6 AC/DC studio albums (T.N.T., High Voltage, DDDDC, Let There Be
Powerage, Highway To Hell). Note: The box set also contained an iron

box set. UK discography in the back of the book.

   Again, this is a history of the band through FTATR. There are some
old pictures, including some with original singer Dave Evans. There
also some errors in picture captions, and for some reason the author
decided to include some pictures of people only peripherally
with the band (backup bands, a writer.) UK discography in the back of
book, including bootlegs.

AC/DC (Monsters of Metal) by Tim Holmes   Ballantine Books 1986
ISBN: 0345332393

   No info on this one.

   Lots of incredible photos in BW and color. This is a must have for
fan of the band.

AC/DC Shock To The System by Mark Putterford  Omnibus Press  1991

   A history of the band through The Razors Edge. Lots of info about
early days in Australia. Many cool pictures, this is the best of the 
AC/DC biographies.

Highway to Hell The Life and Times of AC/DC Legend Bon Scott
		       by Clinton Walker

[Thanks to Brendan Ring <>]

First published in 1994 by Sun by Pan Macmillan Publishers a
division of Pan Macmillan Australia Pty Limited, 63-71 Balfour
Street, Chippendale, Sydney, Australia

ISBN: 0 7251 0742 1

324 pages, including discography of Bon's recordings, and a short
biography of each of the major characters in the book.

This book covers Bon's entire life, including early childhood
(with many photos) through to his death (he had japanese fish
cakes for breakfast the day he died!).

Walker was not assisted by Albert Productions and hence many of
those currently working with Alberts refused to have anything to
do with it (including Angus and Malcolm).  However, in many
respects this has been an advantage as the author has instead
been assisted by people who have no vested interest in following
"the official line".  Consequently, many AC/DC myths are shot
down.  The people he interviews include Bon's parents, his major
girl friends, members of the Valentines, Fraternity, former AC/DC
bassists Rob Bailey and Mark Evans, early AC/DC band managers etc.
interviews appear through out the text as transcripts so what you
read is exactly what they said.  This gives a great deal of
credibility to the book.  The author also includes many letters
that Bon wrote to friends throughout his career (One from 1975
ends with "PS: If you can still manage the other $50 I'd love ya
f'rever. It's no fun waiting around to be a millionaire.").

A criticism of this book is that the author really has it in for 
Angus and Malcolm, presenting them as ogres with very little
supporting evidence.  He also over-analysis Bon's life,
analysising everything as if it plays a part in his eventual

The book presents a complex picture of Bon.   It shows him to be
wild and reckless (nearly dying 3 times during the 70's), but
very polite, likable, though basically alone in the world.  At
the time of his death Bon apparently had ambitions to settle down
in California, and even to do a solo album.  The following 2
quotes really sum up the book:

Mark Evans (former AC/DC bassist)

"They (implying Angus and Malcolm) would dispute this, but I
think they viewed Bon to be ultimately disposable.  In hindsight,
it seems preposterous, but at the time, he was always in the
firing line.  And there was a lot of pressure, mainly from George
(Young), and record companies.  I think within that camp, there's
been a certain rewriting of history, about how they felt about
the guy - no that's wrong, how they felt about the guy
professionally.  Because there was no way you could spend more
than 30 seconds in a room with Bon and not be completely and
utterly charmed."

In 1978 Vince Lovegrove, Bon's friend and former member of the
Valentines, interviewed Bon for RAM magazine.  He wrote:

"(Bon said) Vinnie. I really am getting tired.  I love it, you
know that.  It's only rock'n'roll and I like it.  But I want to
have a base.  It's just the constant pressure of touring that's
fucking it. I've been on the road for thirteen years. Planes,
hotels, groupies, booze, people, towns.  They all scrape
something from you.  We're doin'it and we'll get there, but I
wish we didn't have these crushing day after day grinds to keep
up with ...... Rock'n'roll, you know that's all there is,' he
said. 'But I can't hack the rest of the shit that goes with it."

On the whole this book is well worth getting - it provides
infintely more insight into Bon and AC/DC than any of the other
books I have read about the band.

There are also many interesting comments about AC/DC in general:

Dennis Laughlin (early manager)

"The biggest problem I had with AC/DC in those early days, being
a touring unit, and not having much money, was keeping everything
together, keeping everyone happy.   There's a few dope smokers
in the band, right? Instead of giving everyone fifty bucks a
week, it's like, alright, whatever you need, we'll get it. 
Thirty bucks a week plus a bag of dope, a bottle of Scotch. 
Well, Angus was a pain in the arse, because he says, Fuck ya, I
don't drink booze, or fuckin' take drugs. I'd give him a bag of
fish'n'chips, a Kit Kat, a packet of Benson and Hedges and a
bottle of Coke."

Richard Griffiths (AC/DC's first booking agent in England, now
Epic Records CEO).

"It was clear to me it was Malcolm's band.  Bon was a great guy. 
But even then, I sensed, off Micheal (Micheal Browning, their
manager), that he wasn't sure that Bon was the singer to take the
band all the way.......  He (Bon) was sort of seperate from the
rest.  Phil, he was off on his own, he was actually pretty
obnoxious,.  Angus and Malcolm were thick, obviously.  And then
Mark, you knew Mark wasn't going to last, he was just too much
of a nice guy....."

Some other interesting points:

-    So who has heard of a rare album from early 1973 called
     "Tales of Old Granddaddy" by the Marcus Hook Roll Band
     (Angus, Malcolm, and George Young, and Harry Vanda). 
     This has actually been re-released by Sony Australia this year -
     it's not easy to get a copy though.

-    Bon's girl friend at the time of his death claims that the
     title of "Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution" was a line
     Bon used in an argument with his landlord during the time
     he was preparing the lyrics for the album to follow Highway
     to Hell!

-    In the epilogue the author claims that AC/DC recently
     considered sacking Brian Johnson, though they thought
     better of it (though he presented no evidence)!

And in 1978 a compilation album called "12 of the Best" was to be
released. Its release was cancelled in favour of If You Want Blood.
The book shows the album cover and lists the tracks as:

Long way to the top
High Voltage
Problem Child
Whole Lotta Rosie
Let There Be Rock
Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
The Jack
Dog Eat Dog
She's Got Balls

   This book contains musical transcriptions of 20 AC/DC songs and the
Angus plays in them. There are many good BW pictures of Angus in here.
book is interesting because the author knew little of the band when he
the transcribing. His comments in the introduction and with each 
transcription provide some interesting insight as to AC/DC's music and
playing from a musicians standpoint.

*********************The following is a comic

AC/DC  Rock-n-Roll Comics  Jay Allen Sanford, Mike Sagara, Todd Loren

   A history of the band through release of The Razors Edge, in comic
book form. It's decently put together, but there are some questionable
perspectives on things. Ex: The book states that Phil Rudd left the
band because he thought they were stale and could not keep up with
Has anyone ever heard that story before? The book does include a
Malcolm Young quote at the end, which originally was published in a
Musician magazine interview with Charles M. Young (no relation.)

       "Most people, when they progress, they progress right up
	their asses...we just try to keep it exciting."

				      Malcolm Young

   There is also a short cartoon at the end of the comic book about a
drunken young man helped out of the gutter by a stranger who warns him
that a bottle, like any drug, equals death. The stranger's identity is
revealed at the end of the story...he is Bon Scott.

8. AC/DC Multimedia

AC/DC Collector's Companion CD-ROM

   This cd was released in a set of 500 in early 1996. It features
over 1200
AC/DC collectibles, 1200 known tour dates, 600 taped audio/video
shows, as 
well as tour programs, books, promo memorabilia and more.

9. AC/DC Bootlegs

   There are countless AC/DC bootlegs in many that
could fill a FAQ all their own. Rather than try and duplicate some
excellent cataloging, my suggestion is to check out some AC/DC
as many of them have thorough bootleg lists. Also, the AC/DC
companion CD-ROM is an excellent source of info.

Additional info:

From: Gary Campbell <>
  At Donington in August, they dropped Sin City, That's The Way...,
The Razors Edge and Who Made Who and added Hell Ain't a Bad Place
To Be.
  On the Australian tour they played the same set as Donington but
added Sin City. They also used two bells during Hells Bells.
  Therefore, in summary, AC/DC played the same set all around the
on the first leg of the Razor tour (i.e. all gigs up to the Monsters
of Rock) except for Glasgow where they played Fling Thing and one
concert in the US where they played If You Want Blood (I'm not
sure which concert it was).
  AC/DC played the same set on the second leg (i.e. Monsters of Rock)
all over Europe and made the changes listed above for the final leg
in Australia/New Zealand.

2. What's "The Jack" about?

   "The Jack" is an Australian term, slang for Venereal Disease (like 
"The Clap" in America.) The song is said to be based on the AC/DC's
days, when women, and any diseases they had, were shared by the band.

3. Why wasn't Malcolm on the 1988 tour?

   At the time there were two reasons (rumours) as to the nature of
absence from the tour. The public one was that he was tending to a
sick son, 
the real one was that his drinking was getting out of hand and he
time to regain control of himself. He was replaced on the tour by

   Stevie Young is a cousin of Malcolm and Angus (and George, and
Alex, etc.)
who played rhythm guitar in a band of his own called Starfighters back
in the early to mid 80's. I think they were based in England, and had
style and sound very much like AC/DC. which explains why Stevie fit in
naturally on the tour.  By the way, the Starfighters albums (there
were 2
I know of) are pretty interesting. Same approach as AC/DC - I heartily
recommend the first (self titled), while the second (In Flight Movie)
is ok, but not as good as the first.

4. What kind of guitars do Angus and Malcolm play?

   Angus plays one type of guitar, a Gibson SG.
   Malcolm has played a Gretsch Jet Firebird stripped of all controls
but the
volume for a number of years. He used to have a Gretsch White Falcon
as well, but says that after someone "fixed" it, it lost the sound he
liked it for and he got rid of it. In the "Are You Ready" video, he is
playing an orange Gibson, supposedly he was working with them on a
new guitar, not for endorsement, but for himself since he only has one
that he likes. 
   In 1995, Malcolm got together with Gretsch and they came up with a
version of his guitar. The "Malcolm Young Autograph" is based on his
Jet Firebird, and comes in one and two pickup models. It comes factory
with .012's, which is the gauge that Malcolm uses. Malcolm played
of these, along with the old reliable one, during the Ballbreaker
   [Thanks to Dazgoulash for the following info]
   On the SUL tour, Malcolm had a new 3/4 size single cutaway Gretsch
that was resprayed black. According to Malcolm, this guitar is the
to his "Number One" (the Jet Firebird).
5. Is 'Who Made Who' an AC/DC Greatest Hits cd?
   Who Made Who is the soundtrack to the Steven King movie Maximum
Overdrive. It is NOT an AC/DC greatest hits collection, despite a
company sticker on the package that says "AC/DC's Greatest Hits". The
sticker was added after the movie closed, no doubt an attempt by
to increase sales of the collection.

6. What are some WWW (World Wide Web) sites for AC/DC?   

   There are many excellent AC/DC websites. My best suggestion is to
go to Yahoo's music section (
and proceed from there. Many of the sites have links to other sites.

7. What is Bon saying at the end of High Voltage?

   Something like: 
     "Stars, bars all around...spotlights, footlights...I'll take

   Not sure about "...I'll take 'em", but am pretty sure about the

8. What are "Lurex Socks"?

[Thanks to Ken Hillcoff]

   Lurex was a trademarked brand of socks back in the late 60's and 
early 70's. The stitching patterns were done with a sort of metallic 
thread, which gave them a shiny look. Therefore, a "rocker" would wear
Lurex socks, because of the metallic quality (HEAVY METAL!!!!).

9. Does AC/DC do a version of "My Favorite Things"?

[Thanks to Kyle Bichan <> and Ryan Vickmark <>]
   "My Favorite Things" is a song from the musical 'The Sound of
The song in question is actually called "Jingle Hells Bells", and is a
parody of AC/DC. It is performed by 'Bob Rivers and Twisted Radio', a
from Seattle that parodies rock songs. At the start of the song they
chant "Ho! Ho! Ho!", ala the "Oye! Oye! Oye!" chant of "TNT".
   It is available on a Christmas music compilation that also includes
hilarious parody of Black Sabbath's Iron Man called "I Am Santa

10. Are those real bagpipes on 'Its A Long Way To The Top'?

   Yes, those are real bagpipes on 'Its A Long Way To The Top (If You
Wanna Rock 'n' Roll). They are played by Bon, who in his youth played
bagpipes and drums in the Fremantle (Western Australia) Scots Pipe

11. Where did AC/DC get their name?

[Info taken from 'Shock To The System' by Mark Putterford, & from
 "Behind the Music" profile of AC/DC]

   The Young's sister Margaret suggested something she'd seen on the
of a vacuum cleaner: 'AC/DC'. According to Angus, "It had something
to do with electricity, so it seemed to fit...". The Young brothers
were ignorant of the bisexual connotation that the term carried, and
after opening for bisexual rocker Lou Reed, many gay clubs tried to
them...convinced they were a bisexual group.
   Malcolm tells a slightly different story in the VH1 "Behind the
profile of AC/DC...he says it was Margaret's sewing machine that
the inspiration for the band's name.

12. Does Malcolm play lead guitar on any AC/DC songs?

   Yes. During an online chat in 1995, Angus confirmed that Malcolm
lead on 'Soul Stripper', 'Show Business', 'You Ain't Got A Hold On
and 'Can I Sit Next To You Girl'.
   Also...Angus has confirmed in an online chat that he (and NOT
plays the lead on Ballbreaker's "Whiskey On The Rocks".

13. Is Rosie in the song 'Whole Lotta Rosie' a real person?

[Info taken from 'Shock To The System' by Mark Putterford]
   Yes. Bon wrote the song about a huge Tasmanian woman he had shared
'wild time' with in Melbourne.  Interestingly, the band ran into her
in Hobart, Tasmania...but she had lost a lot of weight and Bon was
disappointed that she was no longer the '42-39-56' that he remembered.
did know the song was about her, and took it as a compliment.

14. Is Ruby in the song 'Go Down' a real person?

[Info taken from 'Shock To The System' by Mark Putterford]
   Yes. Bon wrote those lyrics about a well known rock and roll
named 'Ruby Lips'.

15. Why does Angus wear the schoolboy suit?

[Info taken from 'Shock To The System' by Mark Putterford]

   Angus and Malcolm wanted to have a visual focal point to go along
their music, and their sister Margaret suggested Angus wear the
getup. It was something Angus had tried in one of his previous bands,
only once. Early AC/DC performances saw Angus in a variety of
including a gorilla suit (where he'd bust out of a cage), Zorro, 
Spiderman (with a huge rope spider's web at the back of the stage),
Superman (with a phone booth om stage where he could change). Former
Michael Browning remembers once that Angus was in the phone booth and
door got stuck!

NOTE: I remember early AC/DC press info that explained Angus'
suit as something he wore because he would rush to practice with the
right after school. Of course, he was out of school by the time he
with Malcolm in AC/DC, and this was just another bit of creative
However, it is possible that he did do this with earlier bands he was
while still a student.

16. Wasn't there supposed to be an AC/DC comic book from Marvel?

   Yes, it was mentioned in an MTV 'Week In Rock' story about the
Ballbreaker tour broadcast in 1996. They even showed some pictures
the comic book. But as of 3/97 no comic book has been released.

17. What is Bon saying at the end of 'Night Prowler'?

   Bon says "Shazbot...nano nano". This was Robin Williams' catch
from his old sitcom "Mork & Mindy". As to why Bon says it, I suspect
was trying to lighten up the mood at the end of a particulaly intense
vocal. It occurs well after the song is finished, and he probably
expect it to be on the album.

18. Is there a version of 'Back In Black' with Bon on vocals?

[Info taken from 'Shock To The System' by Mark Putterford]

   No. Bon had several lyrical ideas for the album, but those were
abandoned by the band in favor of new lyrics by Brian, Mal and Angus.
Former AC/DC manager Ian Jeffrey claims to still have a folder that
contains lyrics of 15 songs written for 'Back In Black' by Bon.

19. Who are the "Dutch Damager" and the "Gorgeous Glaswegian" credited
    on the 'Flick Of The Switch" album?

   They are Harry Vanda and George Young, who lent AC/DC a hand in
recording FOTS. 

20. Are Dave Evans and Mark Evans related?

21. Why did Dave Evans/Mark Evans/Phil Rudd/Simon Wright/Chris Slade
    leave the band?
[First 4 entries taken from 'Shock To The System' by Mark Putterford]
   Dave Evans: Failed to make a show, and was booted. The Youngs were
   not crazy about his "glam" musical direction to begin with. Bon -
   was the band's drummer at the time - successfully auditioned for
   singing job.

   Mark Evans: Left the band due to a personality clash with Angus.

   Phil Rudd: Phil became burned out due to a combination of Bon's
   tragic death, and the pressures of the road. Excess pot smoking,
   irresponsible behaviour with women, and a bitter physical
   with another member of the band led to him being sacked.

   Simon Wright: Simon Wright left AC/DC of his own accord to drum
   Chris Slade: Angus and Mal replaced Chris with Phil Rudd, as they
   wanted to get back to the original drum feel they had with Phil.
   Phil was interested, and healthy, so the change was made. The
   band made a point of praising the work Chris did with them, and
   stressed that the change was not due to ill will towards him.
22. Did I hear some AC/DC lyrics in the movie "Mad Max"?

   Yes. At the beginning of the movie, the "Night Rider" character
steals a police car, and during the chase he is ranting over the
police radio. One of his rants is...

    "I'm a rocker, I'm a roller, I'm a right out of controller!"

   ...which is from the song "Rocker".

23. What is the "smoke" that Bon refers to in "Ain't No Fun..."?

    The "smoke" is an Australian slang term for the big city. When Bon
wrote "Well I, left my job in my hometown, and I headed for the
smoke...", he was referring to the fact that from a small town miles
away across the Australian plain, a city could be located by the
pollution it generated. So, "headed for the smoke" meant "headed for 
the city."

24. I really like the sound that Vanda & Young got on the early AC/DC
    albums. Did they produce any other Australian hard rock bands at 
    the time that I might like?

   There are two other noteworthy hard rock bands that Vanda & Young 
produced at the time. The Angels (known as Angel City in the US) and 
Rose Tattoo. Both bands trod the same club circuit as AC/DC, and their
early releases have the same raw, intense, rock and roll approach.
The Angels, and Rose Tattoo were considered the three top hard rock
in Australia during the mid to late 1970's.

   Angels: The Angels were recommended to George Young by AC/DC after 
   they toured together in 1975. AC/DC considered them a "hot new
      The best introduction to early Angels is the US cd 
   'Face To Face'. It is available on Epic, under their US moniker
   Angel City. Also available in the US is 1984's 'Two Minute
   Warning', on Metal Blade, and in the US cutout bins you can find
   1989's 'Beyond Salvation' on Chrysalis.
      Two interesting coincidences between the Angels and
   AC/DC: [1] The guitarists are a brother duo where one plays lead 
   and one plays rhythm (Rick and John Brewster), [2] The singer has a
   three letter nickname (Doc Neeson).
      For more Angels info:
	Alex Carranza's:
	 Martin Mathis':

   Rose Tattoo: Bon helped Rose Tattoo get together with  Vanda &
      The first three Rose Tattoo albums are considered the classics,
   'Rose Tattoo', 'Assault & Battery' and 'Scarred For Life'. These
   are available in Australia and Europe. The first album has also
   issued under the name 'Rock and Roll Outlaw'. There are also
   which contain many of the early songs.
      Two interesting notes regarding Rose Tattoo: [1] Rose Tattoo's 
   singer, Angry Anderson, was in the bands "Coloured Balls" and
   Brown" with Phil Rudd (Phil Rudzevecuis), pre-AC/DC. [2] Rose
   slide guitarist Peter Wells was asked to join "Guns & Roses" after
   Izzy Stradlin left.

25. Brian Johnson and Jackyl?

   Brian Johnson appeared on stage with the hard rock group Jackyl
at a concert in Florida on Sunday, 4.6.97. 

[Review thanks to (GOZONE1)]

sunday afternoon i made my trex to zepherhills ,fl. to see the 7th
livestock concert event. this year was to be special, above all the
bands, one special guest was set to perform. the guest was brian
of ac/dc! brian joined the band jackyl on stage late sunday afternoon
the shows closing act.  the performance was something out of the
brian shared vocals w/ jesse dupree, each would sing a differnet verse
the songs, all and all they pulled it off very well. the 1st song
was a new track written by brian and jesse called "locked and loaded"
hard to describe the song, except to say it was rockin' and filled
nice guitar breaks , tempo changes, and lets not forget great vocals.
band kicked into back in black next, followed by shoot to thrill, i
alone. brian later returned for the encore singing along w/jesse on
lumberjack song, they finished the song w/brian and jesse weilding
chainsaws cutting up a burning chair. it was a fun show, something
different and all for a good cause, the proceeds were givin to the
make a
wish foundation. one final thought, it was nice to see someone on
namely brian johnson, who seemed to genuinely enjoy performing. brian 
interacted w/ the crowd throughout like the true rock n roll veteran
is, it was a great gig/party thanks to brians performance.

26. Who are the nephews of the Young brothers that are in rock bands?

Stevie Young: Guitar player who had a band called 'Starfighters' in
early 80's. Released two decent hard rock albums that are no longer 
available. Stevie filled in for Malcolm on the 'Blow Up Your Video'
Also played in a hard rock band called 'Little Big Horn'.

James Young: Drummer for 'The Poor', a hard rock band that started out
in Darwin and eventually moved to Sydney. Released a few EP's in
and their major label debut album is the excellent hard rocker 'Who
on Sony/550 music. Supported AC/DC on the 'Ballbreaker' tour in the

27. What does Bon say on the live version of "The Jack" from IYWBYGI?

On the live album "If You Want Blood...". after Bon sings "She told me
was a virgin", he asks the question, "Any virgin in Glasgow?". Much of
this album was recorded at the Apollo Theatre in Glasgow, Scotland.

28. Brian and Cliff rocking in Florida?

Brian Johnson and Cliff Williams appeared at a fundraising concert in
Florida on 3.28.98.

[Review thanks to (GOZONE1)]

Hello everyone, heres my review of Brian Johnson and Cliff Williams
the opera house Saturday, March 28, 1998. The gig was a benefit/fund
for a local theatre in Sarasota, Fl. There were several performers and
comedians throughout the night including Jim Breuer, Bob Nelson, Jesse
Dupree, Billy Leverty, Donald Duck Dunn to name just a few. 

On to the show, Brian, Cliff, and Jesse Dupree were the highlight of
jam session at the end of the night. It was a long night, but well
the wait, lets face it when is there a opportunity to check out a
couple of 
the living legends of rock up close in a opera house of all places.
Most of 
the time vocals were shared by Brian and Jesse, both were excellent.
came out 1st and did a old song called Mustang Sally, it was a rocking
version, well done. Next Brian and Cliff made their entrance, the band
Billy Leverty on Guitar (he was magical on guitar, the man can play!),
kicked into Back in Black, I was on the side stage, it was shaking
Cliffs thundering bass and Brians hurricane vocals, these guys are
rock veterans the sound was incredible. I think Brian and Jesse made
of the paint peel of the walls of the opera house. Next up was You
Shook Me 
All Night Long, the song is a classic, and sounded brilliant, Cliffs 
backing vocal was on the mark as always. The band played through
classic rock tracks. A couple of the surprises were, Old Time RnR, yes
Bob Segar song, it was the most heavy, pounding rendition I had ever
With Brian, Cliff, Jesse, Billy Leverty playing the song it added a
twist like no other. Another track I thought was maybe the best of the
night was the Beatles, I Saw Her Standing There, this tracked rocked!
offense to Paul McCartney fans, but with Cliff adding his own bass
it added a special thumping boost to the song. To top it off Brian
just tore the vocals up, the 1st verse he sang along, but by the
verse he really reached down to the classic Johnson wail, I think I
some glass breaking in the opera as he hit some wicked high notes. The
was played the way it was meant to be done, at least in my book.

Well that was just a few of the highlights for the evening, I'll
it forever. I did get to speak to Brian, Cliff, Jesse and several
they were all very down to earth and nice people. Oh yeah, AC/DC is
on a new cd, there still undecided on a producer. For everyone who

Sleeve Notes

Dave Evans was born in Carmarthen Wales. The family emigrated to
when Dave was five years old settling in North Queensland. After a row
his father, at the age of sixteen, Dave headed for Sydney, Living in
Cross, until returning to Queensland a year later. It was at Charters
in Queensland that Dave formed his first band "In Session". Realising
to pursue a serious singing career he needed to be in Sydney, Dave
here to sing with a number of local musicians. It was at this time he
up with Malcolm Young, Colin Burgess and Larry Van Kriedt and agreed
to form
a band, yet unnamed. Malcolm's younger brother Angus joined the band a

It was Malcolm and Angus' older sister Margaret who came up with the
of AC/DC which signified power and energy and so marked the birth of
of the greatest rock n roll bands ever.

AC/DC played their first gig at Chequers nightclub in Sydney on the
31st of
December 1973.

AC/DC went on to gain a strong following in Sydney over the next few
before recording their first single  "Can I Sit Next To You Girl"
(B/W "Rocking in the Parlour")

At this point Angus donned the now famous schoolboy uniform, and with
single racing up the charts nationally, AC/DC started on a National
beginning at the Sydney Opera House. Before the end of the grueling
playing to packed houses all around the country, frictions and egos
their toll and after a punch up between Evans and the manager life on
road became unbearable and a split between Evans and AC/DC became

Bon Scott who had been a friend of Malcolm and Angus's older brother
Young of EasyBeats fame had seen the band perform in Adelaide. Scott
AC/DC which by this stage was well and truly established as a leading
band in Australia. AC/DC went on to become one of the World's greatest

Dave Evans moved to join the exciting up and coming band "Rabbit"
established itself as the leading rock band in Newcastle and
areas and a few months later signed with CBS Records releasing their
album, self titled "Rabbit". Their second album "Too Much Rock and
was released internationally in Japan, Germany, Luxemboug, Holland,
and Scandinavia where it met with considerable success. Rabbit
itself as a wild almost frenzied rock act described by one rock
as savagely heterosexual.

The band finally split in 1979 with Evans moving to Melbourne, forming
"The Lineup" and "Hot Cockerel". Hot Cockerel featured in the Erotic
feature film "Coming of Age" with Dave Evans in the lead role.

Dave Evans finally formed his own band "Dave Evans and Thunder Down
and recorded the self titled album which had a limited release with
independant record label "Reaction Records"

With the demise of Reaction Records and because of legal sqabbling
album had until now sat in limbo.

Listen to the voice which launched AC/DC and the music which is "Dave
and Thunder Down Under"

32. AC/DC did a version of the Little Richard song Lucille?

There is a bootleg single with the Bon tunes "Carry Me Home" and 
"Fling Thing" on the A side, and a live version of "Lucille" on the B
AC/DC played "Lucille" at Brussels Forest National on January 25, 1981
with Atlantic Record's Phil Carson (on bass). To this day, this is the
known time where the band let another musician share their stage. 

33. So how many songs came out of the Stiff Upper Lip sessions?

According to news reports at the end of the sessions, 17 songs were 
recorded, but only 12 were selected for the album. The rest were seen
as possible bonus tracks on imports or maxi-singles. The 5 titles that
didn't make the album are: "Let It Go" "Rave On", "Whistle Blower", 
"The Cock Crows", and "Cyber". Two other interesting notes: 
(1)"Give It Up" was identified in these reports as "R.I.P. It Up". 
(2)The working title for the album was reported to be Smokin'. 

34. What is BOD?

[Thanks to "To The Top" for this explanation.] 

It is currently under debate whether it is a friendly NG tribunal, 
or a power hungry unholy society. I vote for the latter.
BOD refers to the Board Of Directors here at this NG. Who is in it? 
Pretty much anyone who declares themselves a member. It is a self 
appointed group of self important people such as myself who mostly 
admit to being members. Tenure also plays a part. There are some 
who are members by virtue of posting here for years who wrongly deny 
the title. (They are usually herded up and shot) Some are silent 
members who run various web sites or who contribute things such 
as the FAQ. In short, its just another something to do. Computer 
geeks who need to get a real life (who me?) perhaps. But in the end, 
its AC/DC, and recognizing that you are somehow connected to the glory
and success of the band (power hungry part) and showing our
without having to join a 'fan club.'

The BOD does have standards, rules, and punishments (double and now 
triple secret probation thank you Bob) Members come and go as they
There is also an official NG BOD building, a secret BOD handshake, a 
corporate jet (NG-1) as well as a special underground room where
sessions are held.

35. Does Bon Scott sing a version of "Back In Black"?

NO. What you heard is from the "Thunderbolt" tribute, with Joe Lynn
on vocals. For further info on this and other tributes check the
Tributes" section of this document.

36. Is there a reference list of acronyms for AC/DC songs?

Yes there's an alphabetical listing...thanks to DOOF for

our first Video with A Fine Young Russian Lady

Posted by rw_man under background, richness Sexiness, ordinary, info, european Women, Why euro Women?She was very shy about her English and didn want to do this at first but I told her that I thought her accent would be quite endearing and pretty darn cute too.

If you folks enjoy this then please give Mascha your support and illustrate.

You are very correct in recognizing that Mascha and many other girls like her are COMPLETELY Comfortable in their own personal skins as Women.

They simply know who they are and tend to be quite happy and proud because of it.

of course mainstream American Women may also be dis respecting these women with any mix of hostility or jealousy for the obvious reasons. This tends to close off American [url=]russian flirt[/url] Women from learning anything of value from traditional feminine women like this and that is also quite a shame.

Nice article, And she represents a far better option to American women.

for the, with the Caucasus region, Russian women are drooled over and are seen as the best women ever too. I have to disagree and say that this is but their distinction. last week I had two RW come on to me. They were fat and not stylish, it's that I thought they were western women. They kept recurring to my table and I was offended that they could not accept that I was not into them. This Women are the best in the field, starts to infect their thinking as this young girl illustrated.

visit the Balkans, this Caucasus, And Central Europe purchase into the hype.

Mascha still gets a thumbs up for giving us that window into a realistic Russian girl, And her English was indeed charming.

This lady radiates a sense of class that is so seldom felt in America amongst the younger generation. She is poised and chic. Expressive yet carried an air of mystique and reservation. The part that is so saddening is I know you will find some American women watching this video and making crude comments. Let notice, She in form, urbane, delightful, Has long blonde hair, And russian. I certainly recognise beauty when I see it. Heh, I know there is some person out there reading my response and thinking I a lesbian too. What a world sign of true class is when a woman can wear something enlightening and still make it classy. This lady is doing that.

I liked your last comment about how a Russian girl like Mascha can wear something uncovering and still make it classy.

You are absolutely right which is a true sign of class.

And I share diffrent with you.

I was the model who shot the photo. It was taken about 3 months ago on a incredibly hot summer day.

Mascha was completely comfortable in her own skin walking on in what you see in this photo. She decided to rest a bit in the shade of a Merry Go Round and I just simply snapped the picture.

What you see in the photos and videos is how this young lady actually is right through. And this has been the case since the very first time I met her previously.

What you instinctively feel from the images of her and many other on this blog is the real thing. Traditional Russian culture promotes and embraces a level of pride and cultivation for it Women that is amazing and infectious.

Or let me try to put this in a different view.

I could spend my expereince of living taking photos of Women in the US and never get a deeply meaningful shot like this.

But here in Siberia it feels like all I have to do is to raise my lens and press the shutter button.

And this is any particular item above.

If that the real deal no wonder some American women don like it. It a reflection of what they usually are.

Of course they would be different since Russian culture differs from American culture, even so femininity is femininity. They don need to gyrate their hips and party with the guys t (...)
