    From the brief clip it appears that Phil, Brian, and Cliff are on board.

    Showing that genius for innovation ACDC are known for.

    Have you seen Brian's YouTube series On the Road? It's not about AC/DC; it's about his pals in the business. He's a wonderful interviewer too.

    No point in reinventing the wheel, yknow?

    I'm working my way towards that direction.
    To me, that brief snippet could've been off the "Flick of the Switch" album, and that's a very good thing

    It could have been from that era- I am a big fan of the band, but I have a friend who is a superfan and he told me a couple days ago that they used a lot of recordings of Malcolm playing over the years to make this album. You could very well be hearing some early 80's Young brothers' guitar playing. That bit of slapback I perceived lends itself to the production their early 80's albums had...

    There is something a bit magical to me about how AC/DC makes simple, but effective music. They have perfected their art, and it brings me joy to hear it.

    I only found out a couple days ago. I am most pumped that Phil, Brian, and Cliff are on this record. After the last tour, with Phil having his personal issues, Brian with the hearing loss, and Cliff saying he was going to retire, I didn't want to see Angus try to keep the rock n roll train going with replacements.

    Sounds like good old fashioned AC/DC to me. I'll take it!

    He seems like he'd be a fun hang.

    I agree and I'm most surprised about Cliff. Brian said early on in the hearing loss thing that gigs were the real problem, and that he could record at a lower volume just fine. Phil has wanted to remain a member I think - he has just had a lot of personal issues that have gotten in the way at times. But Cliff seemed ready to retire.

    Genius in the simplicity of the Young's plan. People like it so don't change a damn thing.

    “Oh, look. It’s Dr. Williams, doing another open heart surgery. Sure, he pioneered the procedure, but what has he innovated lately?”

    It's only rock and roll. You don't have to buy the CD if it is not innovative enough for you.

    Imagine a world where each AC/DC release was completely different and innovative from the last. Imagine the size their fan base would have shrunk to.

    Imagine AC/DC innovating with diminished 7ths and 3/4 waltz time. Polka? Rock operas? String sections? Accordion breaks from guest artists? Hammond organ? Brass section?

    Yes i can see that, music is exactly like heart surgery. And I'm totally sure nothing at all has changed in heart surgery since the first surgeries in the 1950s. They do it all exactly the same, right?

    The article below on the history of heart surgery seesm to suggest ther's been quite a lot of innovation, but I guess you'd prefer the guy who did it the way they did it back in the 50s?

    "Surgeons have begun to use lasers to perform a procedure called transmyocardial laser revascularization. The laser creates new channels through which oxygenated blood can enter the myocardium from the intracavitary region"

    None of your lasers for me, Dr.!
