    Here's a live show, that's got some great playing. Uli Roth's brother started a band Zeno (Zeno Roth), which eventually became a band, rather than a solo project, which became this:

    And this is one of the songs I had on my mind.

    One of my fave Bon verses. I love the not so hidden meaning here.

    :naughty:

    "It wasn't the first
    It wasn't the last
    She knew we was making love
    I was so satisfied
    Deep down inside
    Like a hand in a velvet glove"

    And this verse reminds me of those women that know how to gently, patiently and oh so giving take care of their man.

    "It was one of those nights
    When you turned out the lights
    And everything comes into view
    She was taking her time
    I was losing my mind
    There was nothing that she wouldn't do"

    Regarding the rhythm guitars in that song, I have always wondered what that effect is there? Is it some type of flanger being used? Very rare to here these guys use any effect on their guitar tone.

    Looking for something I don't remember what.
    I may be wrong on this as I'm by no means an expert AC/DC historian, but I'm pretty sure Malcolm wrote all the lyrics. Which is why the songs had the same character (and subject matter :naughty:) after Scott's sad departure.
    I know what you mean about Malc's rhythm tone on "Touch Too Much".....it almost sounds like a speaker was busted. Really effective, then Angus comes in with punctuation chords, great rock and roll solo, awesome middle riff after the solo into the dropout, build into the outro solo and finish.
    Jeepers what a great tune. :woot:

    Man, they're awesome! I'm going through the Kawasaki performance right now, and it looks certain I'll be looking for more by them. :)

    Highway To Hell was the world-class AC/DC album breakthrough, much more polished. I like the original format Let There Be Rock album for its rawness, and Powerage straddled the two, with rawness and polish. AC/DC at their finest, those three.

    I just had a memory come to me. I was about 15 years young and hanging out with my cool Uncle who was 5 years older than me. He took me to his friends house, as this friend had an insane sound system in his home. I remember looking through his massive collection of vinyl LP's and had him put on the Highway to Hell album. That opening track on that album coming through his sound system at a volume level equivalent to a live band in the room was an experience I will never forget. And not just loud, as it was an amazing clear pristine tone. That had a HUGE impact on me as a kid just starting to play guitar.

    They were talked about on, or on, the weekly TV rock show (Countdown), and got regular radio play here, from '74 onwards. They were part of an Oz kid's life, every school kid knew it was "a long way to the shop if you wanna sausage roll..." We loved it all, the film clips were funny and the buggers ROCKED

    -HENDRIX was always humble to talk to, but HENDRIX was a mutha f*ckah to other guitarist's, especially if he felt they disrespected him, he would purposely take there songs and do it better, that entire film where clapton says "oh,.. whats ya gonna do now" -(when HENDRIX's guitar was out of tune from using the vibe with the previous song)- is HENDRIX at his best, watch his fretting hand, he's making the guitar in tune by bending individual notes in the chords and runs, they-(clapton, beck, townsend etc.)- werent rooting for HENDRIX ya know, HENDRIX ate it up, kicked all there ass's, what do ya do when you get bitch slapped with the truth?... there is no come back,.. as far as HENDRIX used "studio magic", there isnt one studio album i would take over anything HENDRIX did live,

    -AC-DC- BON SCOTT was AC-DC,..... they died when BON died, BON wrote the lyrics, BACK IN BLACK was "in the can" with its writer and singer BON SCOTT before he died, follow the time line of when BON died, AC-DC hires brian johnson, and the release of BACK in BLACK, tell me you cant hear and picture BON SCOTT singing, is it no coincidence that AC-DC turned to sh*t immediatley after BACK IN BLACK?

    Agreed with the bulk of your post but not that they went to shit following Back In Black. There were some good tunes in the few very poorly recorded and produced albums after For Those About To Rock and then they came back strong, albeit with a different sound, for The Razor's Edge. I loved that album for the very sharp sound...it was more like a 90s metal record than traditional rock n roll. A large part of that due to Chris Slade on drums I think. The AC/DC Live album from that tour has some searing guitar tones, especially the Live at Donington video release.

    Ballbreaker is another excellent album the whole way through with a more true to their old sound but still heavier but more in a heavy blues way than metal.

    Stiff Upper Lip showed signs of decline and the 2 following albums were huge disappointments. The most recent being their worst album of all time, period.

    Just my $.02

    I have to agree with Mike on Van Halen 1 but an equally good one has to be "Women and Children First".. that's an Incredible album too..


    AC/DC Back in Black
    DIO "Holy Diver"
    Yngwie "Marching Out"
    Metallica "Ride the Lightning"
