ACDC australia 1973



One of the biggest Rock bands ever, they sold more than 200 million albums worldwide!
Formed in 1973 by the brothers Angus and Malcolm Young ,their music was described as hard rock, blues rock and heavy metal but they just called it simply Rock and Roll.
The first album, High Voltage in 1975 was an instant success and gave stability to the band members.
After touring the second album Power age was released in 1977 with a change of bass player Mark Evans.
The third album, Highway to Hell came out in February 1980 and sadly only a few months later lead singer and co-writer Bon Scott died of an acute alcohol poisoning!
The band wanted to disbanding but stayed together and luckily found a replacement singer in Brian Johnson.
Later that year they released the first album with singer Brian Johnson ,Back in Black, dedicated to their former lead singer Bon Scott.
The album became one of the best selling albums of all time.
Following albums are : For Those About To Rock, The Razors Edge and the album Ball Breaker in 1995.
Black Ice ,released in 2008, with the smashing song: Rock N Roll Train, reached the number one position on all charts worldwide.
The lineup of the band remained the same until one of the former band Malcolm Young had to step out due to dementia problems and unfortunately died in 2017.
Problems keep haunting the band : Brian Johnson had to stop instantly due to severe hearing loss!
Because of set tour dates, and million tickets sold, Guns N’ Roses lead singer Axl Rose came to replace Brian Johnson for the rest of the Rock or Bust World tour
It is still uncertain if the band will come back with a new album or touring the world.
