You could set a clock to this guy. So good.

Check out this flawless isolated track from a live performance on stage.

Bummer. I was lucky enough to catch them at Dodgers Stadium a few years ago before Axl replaced Brian Johnson. Killer show, even for a bunch of old dudes. Always thought Malcolm's playing was under appreciated.

I thought he was already dead?

Saw this in the news yesterday.  I caught them on the Razor's Edge tour.  Not their finest album, but they played all the hits I loved and teenage me was so impressed by the cannons in For Those About To Rock I don't think which tour it was mattered in the least.

His brother George died last month. You may have heard about that. He was also a famous Aussie rhythm guitarist

I only saw Malcolm played once. That was with AC/DC at the Queenstown Memorial Hall on Feb 29th 1976.
It was only a crowd of about 400. But that was almost every person under 25 in my hometown  ;)



Angus was so young, he didn't look creepy in his schoolboy outfit  ;)

One of those odd coincidences to see the local paper note that long-time AC/DC vocalist Brian Johnson lives just a couple miles from me in my new Florida town, though in a much ritzier gated community. Apparently he did not succumb to the blow-your-money-and-health fate of so many in that business.

Although I came of age on some pretty loud rock and roll bands, my ears were troubling me by the time AC/DC emerged and I didn't find them that appealing with the volume turned down.

The first live show to bother me was Meshuggah.  It wasn't so much the volume as it was the lights.
