Bon Scott was *not* born in Perth but made his name there so Bruce opened the show last night with "Highway to Hell"

The uptight cork sniffer AC/DC fans won't like this due to the key & capos.
But Bruce isnt a tribute act, he's a fan, and fans of rock and roll understand.

Morello, Lofgren, Bruce and Little Steven all solo.
Tons of fun.

Actually, Bon was born in Kirriemuir, Scotland. He is buried in Perth. The cork-sniffing 'DC fans will take you task on that well before criticizing da Boss paying homage ;)

Seems like Springsteen's been having some fun with his opening songs this tour, he opened his first show in South Africa with The Special AKA's "Free Nelson Mandela". I'm not a Bruce fan but I thought that was pretty cool.

Mmm...not on TGP.
My comment was not about his birthplace, like I said it was about key/tone/capos, etc...instead of just enjoying it.

Corrected.
Born in Scotland but emigrated to Perth at 6yo and is credited as an "Australian musician" from Perth.

Are there really cork sniffing acdc fans? That doesn't compute.
It may not compute but, yes, yes they have. :eek:

Sorry, I should have said I enjoyed it, capos/key et al, as I said, nice to see them getting props. Love Morello too, king of the stupefying squawk. Cheers for posting it.
