Not many bands could come back from the death of their lead singer (RIP the powerhouse that was Bon Scott), but AC/DC did thanks to the broad shoulders and dry wit of their two guitar heroes. And singer Brian Johnson, of course.
“We’ve survived a lot over the years,” Angus said, “but we’ve always had a sense of humour about things. We’re a rock band - we don’t have the answers to today’s problems. We create music to put on at a party to get your feet tapping. We get criticised for playing the same three chords, but so what? The simpler a song the better because it’s more in line with what people on the street want to listen to.”
There’s even talk of a new album and world tour coming later this year, despite Malcolm taking time away from the band to recuperate. Born survivors.
