    Very bummed I never got to see them during the Bon era. He was off the charts. They're still the best hard rock band of all time, IMO, but I heavily favor the early stuff.

    I saw the Midnight Special episode when it originally aired. Ted Nugent was the guest host and introduced them.

    I was in high school at the time and a kid down the street sold me the Powerage cassette and Journey's Infinity cassette. I took them to school and we listened to the Journey cassette all that week during horticulture class.

    That Saturday I watched the Midnight Special episode with AC/DC playing Sin City and I could not believe what I was seeing & hearing. In my mind this was EXACTLY what Rock & Roll was supposed to look & sound like.

    I went into class Monday morning and pulled out that Jouney cassette and told everyone in horticulture class that they were about hear the best band ever. I plugged in the Powerage cassette and rocked out.

    That video honestly changed my life. I became a HUGE AC/DC fan. My first real guitar was a Gibson SG. I eventually bought an 68 SG just like Angus had.
    In 1985 I moved from Hicksville NC to Los Angeles. I immediately answered an ad for a Guitarist Wanted for AC/DC tribute. We played to packed houses all over SoCal throughout the late 80s.

    That video has a lot of history with me.

    Bon Scott era AC/DC is some of the best rock-n-roll ever recorded!! Raw, loud, & rude.... just like rock-n-roll is supposed to be!!! :aok I'll never forget hearing them for the first time-Highway To Hell, right after it came out. That record had an impact on me and it still gets me going 30 years later! Nothing wrong with the Brian Johnson era, but I still prefer the Bon Scott era.

    Bon is the best! Tongue firmly planted in cheek, he rocked as hard as it could be done. My favourite band, fo sho. First songs I ever learned on my bolt-on fake SG were off Highway To Hell. Thanks for posting!

    I saw one of the if not the first shows in the US at a club in SF called the Old Waldorf. ACDC just killed. Angus rode around on Bon's shoulders table to table slicing the tops of everyones head off. One of the top 3 shows ever for me. This was 77 I think at the peak of the ridiculous punk thing here where if you couldn't play at all you had an audience. they were a big blast of real and they have remained true to their spirit all these years.

    That was so good. Bon 's delivery was really great there as it generally was. I think I appreciate them far more now than I did when they first came out & I loved them then. (All us kids were joyously singing "It's a long way to the shop, when you want a sausage roll").

    That's why the AC/DC cover band I sing for just does Bon era stuff. I can sing it, so why not do it? More fun than should be allowed by law.
