Let There Be Rock
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.”
