pan style=”mso-spacerun: yes;”> They’ve flicked the switch and given us a 21 gun salute. They play 2 ½ hours knowing that everyone is going to leave not hearing every song they wanted to. They have played everywhere multiple times year after year. If you haven’t found time to see them by now, buy a DVD. There are some good ones out there. And while people taking their kids to see the band they grew up with may seem harmless, is that really the role of a parent. Think of the first time you got into AC/DC. Sitting in a buddy’s older brothers bedroom smoking pot while he puts on Let There Be Rock. Now imagine your dad in the room with you playing air guitar. Did that make it better? (If you’re saying yes then fuck you.) Discovery is one of the coolest parts of being a rock n roll fan and parents who make things cooler are failing as parents. AC/DC made it ok for the pretty girls at school to hang out at the same farm kegger as you. Because of AC/DC I am always about to rock. And I salute them. My life is better because of AC/DC. They don’t owe me anything more.
But the decision isn’t mine anymore than the million’s chiming in around the world. The bottom line is if they want to (They want to) they are going to. As a musician I understand the desire to carry on against common sense. So while I may disagree with it, who am I to be against it. I’ll be stopping by Best Buy to buy their new album come December. But to those of you who feel you need it. Those of you who want it. I ask why? Because the party will never be as good as last night. Hate Mail
