For those about to rock....





Guess what I got in the mail today?

The new AC/DC, "Black Ice." Did you get it yet, Lisa? It's great!

Woooooo! Rock and roll!

While this is nothing groundbreaking, these guys can still kick it out, man. It's pretty typical AC/DC, just some good, solid rock and roll. I was playing it on the computer, so it wasn't very loud, but you know how some blogs have music playing when you go to them? AC/DC drowned it out completely. No contest. I look forward to playing it on the actual stereo and running it through my Bose 901's. Things will be falling from the walls! Ha ha!

I've only listened to it once, so I need to give it another spin or 12, but my favorites so far are "Rock n Roll Train" (the first single, getting quite a bit of airplay), "Big Jack," "Spoilin' for a Fight," "Rocking all the Way" (with a great Angus guitar solo), and the title track. My absolute favorite, though, is the anthemic "She Likes Rock n Roll," and its chorus of "She digs rock 'n roll, She likes rock 'n roll!"

How can it not be my favorite? They wrote it for me! Thanks, guys! Mwah! Mwah! Really, it's just a lot of fun. I can imagine being at a concert and shouting along with that song! By the way, I heard this morning that their Chicago shows October 30 and November 1 at Rosemont sold out in 8 minutes. They still rock, I'm telling you.

I'm going to go start the enchiladas for Ken's birthday dinner, but before I go, I'll put up my favorite AC/DC song. Angus Young may be a strange little fellow, but I think he's one of the best guitarists in recent history. I love how this song starts with just the guitar riff and low vocals, then the drums start up, then Brian starts singing and the song KICKS in. No lyrics needed...it's AC/DC, they're not known for their poetry. Here's "Thunderstruck." Turn it up!

  3. I wasn't going to rush out and buy it, but now... I'll have to reconsider.
    One of my favorite all-time concert memories was a 1981 AC/DC show in Fort Wayne. he show began with the dummer pounding on a huge bell as the song, 'Hells Bells' began.
    Back in The Day, I was still slightly impressionable and thought it was damn cool.
    Nice to see you're still rockin'.

  6. I had a bad experience once at an AC/DC concert when I was a teenager.

    On the way to the concert, I developed a bad headache. No one had anything to take.

    The opening song was hells bells with a gigantic bell coming up out of the floor, loud as hell!

    I just about crawled under the seats in head pain! LOL

    It was the longest concert I ever attended! LOL
