Next year will be the 30th anniversary of AC/DC's best selling record of all time "Back In Black," but they've been around since 1973. Brian Johnson (Vocals) is in his 60's while the youngster, in more ways than one, Angus Young (Lead Guitar) clocks in at 54. How can a bunch of blues lovin' blokes still inspire young girls to flash their boobs; even while their fathers are at the same show? It's very simple, they keep it simple.

The band has aged, but can still rock and roll like nobody's business. They play a mean 12-bar blues amped up by a wall of Marshall's along the back of the stage. Time has taken its toll on Brian's voice, but now he seems to be able to sing the Bonn Scott (Original vocals - Deceased) songs a lot better than the ones that he originated. Regardless, both eras of the band were well represented in their current tour for their latest release "Black Ice". The band banged out the hits, or should I say 'spread em' right there in front of God and everyone, much to the delight of the crowd. [Of course the Almighty was there; he was catching up with his ol' devilish friend Angus].
