Let There Be Rock

Metal Hammer (UK) - - The 1970s - By caleb shomo, Beartooth


High volt­age at­ti­tude from the cra­zi­est rock’n’roll gang of them all

“The Song that made me fall in love with this al­bum was Whole Lotta Rosie.

I first heard it on the Live At Don­ing­ton

1991 video, which is one of the great­est rock shows of all time. So I looked up what al­bum it was on, got the record and just fell in love with it.

“They were this wild group of crazy Aussie kids and their first singer, Bon Scott, is one of the great­est rock’n’roll vo­cal­ists who ever lived. That dude could do so much with his voice – scream­ing stuff, sleazy stuff. He was a to­tal ma­niac with a crazy range.

He did not give a fuck about any­thing apart from rock’n’roll.

“Peo­ple say they do the same thing over and over with their mu­sic, but what I love about them is that they don’t fuck around with any­thing else. They’re not go­ing to put out a disco record. It’s just four on the floor, Gib­sons go­ing through Mar­shalls that are about to ex­plode. It’s al­ways got a good groove or it’s fast, high-en­ergy stuff. That’s who they are, and they don’t fuck around with it. That’s why AC/DC are my favourite band. They take it se­ri­ously and at the same time they don’t care what other peo­ple think. That’s what rock’n’roll should be.”
