In Jack's reply to one of my posts here; I'm a long-time fan (there's another pun...) of AC/DC. Lead singer Brian Johnson was originally from Dunston, Gateshead, Newcastle upon Tyne which is only a couple of miles from where I live now. I went to school with one of Brian's nephews, but enjoyed listening to AC/DC before I met his nephew.

p.s. Top song - by the way.

Funny story, my kids (currently ages 3 and 5) love AC/DC ... especially older stuff with Bon Scott (no disrespect to Brian Johnson who is mighty talented in his own right). One day my daughter came home from school and asked to listen to "Rain to the Drop". Well, at school they listen to lots of music and often I can find it on Youtube. No dice for anything like "Rain to the Drop" or variations thereof. She wasn't able to sing or hum a recognizable tune so I just gave up. Days later, listening to some AC/DC in the car she yelled out "Rain to the Drop". As you might have guessed by now, the song was "It's a Long Way to the Top". :D

Yeah, and I remember a certain 2 year old requesting "Bells" every time she got in your car a few years back. :cool:

I don't mind who sings/screams as long as Angus Young is at the guitar :)

^^^^^^^Nice version, but you can't better the original version of "it's a long way to the shops if you want a sausage-roll" with the original band members! Made right here (last century in 1976) - in Swanston Street complete with Melbourne trams!

Sorry Uwe - Just a cover band for the original line-up in your video. Even the Angus Young look-alike in the Munich clip just ain't the same!!

^^^^A clear instance of "ACDC meets the pinball wizard"! Is that a very young Roger Daltrey?
