Shit!! George the other week and now Mal.

RIP Malcolm you crazy diamond.  The founder member and driving force of the greatest rock 'n' roll band ever (IMO).

With Brian being a bit shaky these days I suspect this is probably the end of AC/DC now. :(

All those riffs, man !
He was fantastic.
He took the gospel of Chuck and made it harder.
We shall never forget you, Malcolm.

Unfortunately some (American ?) christians have taken it upon themselves to spout their hateful bullshit again with stuff like he's taken the highway to hell and all that.
That those people still talk about the love and forgiveness of jesus christ is beyond me. Fuck them all.

Just stumbled across this, a Korean girl playing Thunderstruck on a gayageum, a traditional Korean instrument.

In other news it seems the band are recording at the moment, as usual the band are being very private but apparently,  Brian Johnson, Rudd and Williams are on board.

Another one of the band gone. Albeit a minor player, he was still part of the band at one point.

Early bass guitarist Paul Matters died yesterday.

Sacked By Bon and the Young brothers.  One of the reasons cited was him being "Too pretty".

"Matters quit music after his departure from AC/DC in 1975 and sold his bass guitar. He lived on a disability pension for the rest of his life". (WIKI)

RIP

I always think it must be excruciating as musician to be sacked from a band then see them go on to achieve stratospheric success.  Paul Di'Anno from Maiden also springs to mind.

Pete Best might be the biggest example of being ditched at the wrong moment.

Really like the new song they’ve released ahead of the album, unfortunately it’s often the only good song on the album these days. However it’s definitely one of their better songs in the past 20 years or so, so hope there’s a few more on the album at least.
Seen them on ever tour since the Razors Edge and get the feeling this is the last hurrah after the chaos the last tour descended into, so will be going again whenever they’re able to tour.

Also amazing to hear the work Brian’s put in with this magic technology that’s being used to allow him to hear and sing again. Best he’s sounded in a while, hope he’s able to replicate it live.

Anyone listened to the new album yet?

It’s better than the last couple, a few highlights, in particular Shot in the Dark might be the best song they’ve written since Thunderstruck.

I thought it was a solid album, definitely the best they've done in a couple of decades. Shot in the Dark is so fun, I liked it upon hearing it as the single, but it's the 3rd track on the album, and I really liked the opening two tunes, so it sounded even better in 'context'

I'll definitely be trying to see them on the next tour as I wouldn't be surprised if it was the last. They may have another album in them, but if this is the final one I can't say they've ended things poorly. I do think they'll make another, though.

Yep the first three songs open the album up really well, bit patchy after that but that’s pretty much part for the course with almost all of their records since Back In Black. I’ll be looking to see them again when they tour once that’s possible. Always brilliant live.

"The mists of time" reminds me of good old AC/DC more than many recent songs.
