AC/DC Fans Ready For Release of ‘Rock or Bust’

Filed under: AC/DC — Real Rock News on October 29, 2014 (07:59)

Although AC/DC has been around since the early 1970’s, endured the loss of their lead singer Bon Scott, and went on to become one of the highest-grossing rock bands of all time, they do not appear ready to ease into retirement quietly just yet. On December 2nd, their latest album, Rock or Bust, is set for release in the U.S. It will be released on November 28th in the group’s home country of Australia. With the good, unfortunately, comes the bad this time around. As fans were welcoming news of the new album release, sad news surfaced about founding member Malcolm Young’s retirement from the group. Although news regarding exactly why one of the founding brothers of the group was retiring was not immediately revealed, it was later learned that the 61-year-old is suffering from dementia. The release of the new album certainly gives the appearance that AC/DC plans to Continue reading…

DVD Review: AC/DC’s Let There Be Rock

Filed under: AC/DC,CD/DVD Reviews — Real Rock News on May 25, 2011 (13:57)

The year 1979 must seem like ancient history to a good percentage of AC/DC’s present fans, kind of like when I hear my parents talk about 1952 or something. 1979 was ten years before my first son was born and during that time a youthful AC/DC was out touring the world. With singer Bon Scott still out front, the band probably had no idea the concert footage shot in Paris on that December day would be the last to include Scott. In a tragic and all-too-familiar exit from this life, he was found lifeless during the afternoon of February 20th, 1980 in a car after being left to sleep off a night of heavy drinking. Although Scott was only 33 years old at the time of his death, the time he spent as the frontman for one of the hardest-rocking bands of all time certainly provided him with experiences that Continue reading…

AC/DC Still Electrifying Fans with Plans For New Album, Tour

Filed under: AC/DC,Classic Rock News — Real Rock News on May 9, 2011 (13:55)

The year 2013 will be an important one for Australian rockers AC/DC. Die hard fans are aware that it stands as a major milestone for the group, putting four decades in the rear-view mirror since they first called themselves a band. The hard-rocking group may also be working on plans to celebrate their upcoming ruby anniversary in a way that will rival the success of their last album, Black Ice, and the nearly two-year world tour that followed. Considering the fact that the Black Ice tour was the third highest-grossing concert tour of all time, it will literally be a hard act to follow. Guitarist Angus Young reportedly told the UK’s Sun newspaper that he and his band mates were thinking about how they could better the Black Ice tour, and sounded confident when he stated that they were not yet sure how they would do it, but they would.

AC/DC A Threat To Austrian Wildlife?

Filed under: AC/DC,Classic Rock News — Real Rock News on December 28, 2009 (14:02)

Known as one of the hardest-rocking classic acts to ever grace the stage, AC/DC sure knows how to play it loud. That’s what their fans pay to see, and that’s what they get. I mean, what would be the point of playing a track like “Highway To Hell” or “Hell’s Bell’s” at any setting below eight? Despite the fans and their obvious love for the Aussie rockers’ thunderous sound, it appears that there may be trouble ahead for fans who have plans to attend the show at the Wels airport in May. The Wels Airport is in Austria, and is said by conservationists to be too close to the nesting areas of a bird known as a curlew. In fact, the area is said to be the second largest curlew nesting area in Upper Austria. Not surprisingly, the Wels airport show is already sold out, and there are bound to Continue reading…
