A YouTube-er who claims that he attended to the video-shoot posted a video where he tries to replicate the guitar work on "Rock n' Roll Train".

Well it sounds like something they would do, will have to see or hear when it comes out if he was near the mark !!

but i think Phil Rudd and Cliff Williams are incredibly boring. They dont do shit.

Don't know 'bout Williams, but Rudd started to bore me a bit too. Chris Slade was more my type. He was a machine, doing things a bit more complex than Rudd (although AC/DC's style is pretty simple, in every way) and he was always smiling. He seemed to enjoy the shows more.

But anyway, it's much easier to entertain the people as a guitarist than as a drummer, having the freedom of moving around and all.

Yeah, that's AC/DC. Simple, tough rock 'n' roll.

But I think that if the drums and bass parts were more complex, it wouldn't be AC/DC no more.


Saluting AC/DC

A STAR-STUDDED line-up of local and international artists will stage a tribute concert to AC/DC at this year's Adelaide International Guitar Festival.

The AC/DC We Salute You concert will close the festival on December 7 with main-stage acts performing their favorite AC/DC songs.

Two former band members will be among about 30 musicians at Elder Park to celebrate the iconic Australian rock band.

Original vocalist Dave Evans is travelling from his home in Texas, in the United States, and early bass player Mark Evans from Sydney.

Read the whole article here!

Now this got me even more excited about the album. Hope Wal-Mart will post those song previews pretty soon. I wonder how Rock 'n Roll Dream sounds like. Well, I know it will rock, like any other song from the boys. But man, AC/DC does a sensitive song! Can't wait to hear it!

Agreed, but I'm not just talking about live. Even on the album, rhythm section is boring. I mean the bass and drums are just plain simple...can't even take them seriously.

They are what they are. Steady and tight as hell. AC/DC is a beat driven band and they make no excuses for it. As a unit, I think they are a great rhythm section. :)

AC/DC Italia fansite reports that AC/DC's Black Ice will be available in three colors, each one with different graphics too!

People got excited about 'Black Ice'. Some of the band's albums reached some high positions in this week's ARIA chart.

The mysterious 30 second sample of Rock 'N Roll Train published on AC/DC's MySpace disappeared as quickly as it appeared.

And guess what, SoloDallas, the YouTube guy who covers AC/DC songs like no other is back!

The Song Is Here!

The song is streaming non-stop at AC/DC's official website.

You can also find it at AC/DC's MySpace and on YouTube (poor quality).

The song is pure AC/DC, good old rock 'n roll, catchy riff, Brian's vocals are more than I (and others) have expected. All that topped with Angus' explosive solo...one hell of a song! Can't wait to get my hands on the full album!

later edit> found another YT vid, better quality this time!
