    True, but Brian's voice compared to now and around Back In Black has gotten Horrid.


    Just listen to AC/DC live

    Duh.

    I was only kidding about how AC/DC sucks... Bon was obviously better than Brian.

    Bon couldn't have done what Brian does, and Brian couln't have done what Bon did. It's easy. When you know it's all AC/DC no matter the singer then you can start noticing changes in eras and just how terribly Fly on the Wall was produced!

    that's what they say about Billy Joe Armstrong :D guy couldn't sing a decent vocal line to save his life.

    regarding this ACDC thing going on here, Angus said so himself "I only know one solo, but play it in different ways" not bad but not as fantabulous as all claim.

    Oh yeh, brilliant tracks. I just think the producer got a bit power mad with the reverb on Brian.

    FWIW - You do know that Angus and Malcolm produced "Fly On the Wall" and "Flick Of The Switch" themselves? Perhaps a little lesson there on keeping outside producers when needed.

    Also, the remastered version of "Fly On the Wall" corrects the Brian Johnson vocals that sounded like they were in the background and raises the volume on the almost inaudible bass lines.

    I have Let There Be Rock on vinyl where the sleeve has the international version's artwork (band on stage, and Angus close-up on back) but the Australian version's track listing, while the record is the normal international version (with Problem Child replacing Crabsody in Blue). Pretty weird stuff right?
    I'm not even really a fan of the band, but this could be worth something(probably not though.

    Welp.... I think I'm getting either this: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Gibson-Les-Paul-Melody-Maker-Electric-Guitar?sku=517842
    or this: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Gibson-Faded-SG-Special-Electric-Guitar?sku=517222
    Probly this^^^

    in fact, I could save up for this: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Gibson-SG-JR-P90-Electric-Guitar?sku=518932

    But why get that when I could save a little more and get this: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Gibson-SG-Menace?sku=517378
    ^That's the most expensive thing I could probably get.

    The days and cash cannot come and rack up quick enough till I get my Gibson.

    I've only got like, 2 months now till my bands first gig, and still need a good reliable guitar to gig with. Eek!
