On August 26th I am thrilled to be checking out the great AC/DC at Metlife Stadium, in my world the second greatest heavy metal band of all time, right after Motorhead and better on stage then even Saint Lemmy.
Before that I will be streaming all their albums (or at least their setlist) on Spotify (for me -my home PC is a disaster area that won’t let me download Apple Music)and so AC/DC who held off putting their albums on ITunes till last year have now gone all in and you can stream any of them.
Tidings of great joy, no doubt about it, right?
What I love about AC/DC is not just the case of form over everything else, that consistent hard rock where there are no bad songs (and only a couple of great songs) but endless great songs. Last year’s Rock Or Bust was absolute magic, a wonderful heads down masterwork of more of the same, just rockin’ the blues away till it all explodes in cheerful rockiness and energy so timeless it seems to be the same, even as age begins to disintegrate the bands.
So far I’ve gone from Highway To Hell to Back In Black to the latest and have done nothing but enjoy it. Welcome AC/DC to the 21st Century, stream em now.

a 28 song full, full blown reggae rasta brilliance
