It looks like AC/DC might be about to call it quits!!
I think just about every SG head has a special place in their heart for AC/DC.
AC/DC Rumors Intensify Amid Report of Malcolm Young Stroke
I hope Malcolm a speedy recovery
I don't know about that. Personally, I want my higher strings to feel lighter than the lower ones.
