    Just listened. Yes, very AC/DC, as everyone observes. Not exactly another Thunderstruck or Back In Black, though.

    I'm always happy with the arrival of new AC/DC songs, but I can't work out whether the guys are just too old to fire that much energy in to the music, or if I'm hearing it with tainted ears because that's what I'm expecting them to be like.

    I have to say that, for me, AC/DC died when Bon Scott died .... not that HE was the singular representative of the collective band but his voice was so very, almost uniquely, distinctive and intrinsic to the style of music they wrote and played, it was always going to be difficult to replace that without accusation of outright imitation. However, I do, personally, think they missed a number of opportunities to get a singer with the characterisitc vocal style and presentation that would better suit - Marc Storace of KROKUS or Tom Keifer of CINDERELLA for example.

    I saw AC/DC live a number of times, most memorably at Hammy O where the sight of Angus - still playing an extended lead solo - led a line of "imitators", complete with cardboard/wooden 'guitars', down then back up the balcony steps before re-appearing on stage! But I had to make a very swift exit from Donnington MoR when the 'new' AC/DC debuted. I couldn't get past the first BJ number .......

    Even McVities can roll a milk chocolate Digestive off the production line. (For Those About To Choc)

    She looks like she's teaching Angus how to cross the road. And he's not getting it.

    "If you step on to the road without looking, Angus, you may be hit by a YZF1000R."

    "So you I mean I could be..."

    I have a mate who thinks the same way. I started my AC/DC journey from Back In Black so I don't have that standard of Bon's voice in my mind. My equivalent is Fish leaving Marillion. Just not the same afterwards. Eventually I accepted that they're two versions of a good thing.

    I went to "An evening with Noddy Holder" a few years ago, at Buxton Pavilion, and Noddy told us that he was asked to replace Bon Scott before they asked Brian Johnson. He turned them down, as his allegiance was still to Slade. If only..........
