40 years ago one of the greatest rock albums was born , featuring Brian Johnson on vocals and songs that have become rock staples Back in Black is
probably in all our record collections , dust it off and give it some love.... it's 40 !
Back In Black is the best title track ever , pure class.
I must say I was a huge Bon Scott fan and was devastated when he passed, I never thought they'd play again. When I heard they were recording with a
new singer I was pissed - it seemed like a sellout and a hugely disrespectful to Bon's memory ( I was 19).
I bought the record anyway just so I could hate on it, and I was blown away. Brian Johnson was the perfect fit, same fire and swagger without coming
off like a Bon wannabe. The backstory about him joining the band made it even better.
Long live ACDC!!!!
Although, now that we have tobacco and alcohol Prohibition in South Africa, sorry boys, I can't offer you a drink.
Whatever I can scratch together is going down my own hatch.
But nevertheless, I recall when I posted this song on social media in 2009 I immediately had to copy some jumble of letters and numbers to confirm I'm
I'm like what's this? They got sober people on social media?
What ever happened to that? Copy these digits stretched in all conceivable acid trip directions to confirm you're "human"? Was that just Mark
Zuckerberg having fun?
Anyway, time to shake a leg and rock out.

Ah that means it was 40 years ago that a teenage me, walking through hills in Northern California, came across a herd of cattle, decided to show my
posterior by pushing play on my boombox with my brand new AC/DC Back In Black cassette in it... Only to discover that AC/DC apparently makes herds of
cattle charge whoever is playing the AC/DC in their general direction.
Learned a couple of valuable lessons that day. One that I really loved that cassette and, two, that cows can run a LOT faster than one might assume.
