AC/DC To Tour North America


Those age-defying rascals in AC/DC will be touring North America later this year, and we’ve got all of the scheduled dates. The band’s fresh from its performance opening the Grammys. They’ve been rejoined by Chris Slade on drums. The “Rock Or Bust” tour will kick off in Massachusetts on August 22, mere days before my […]

Chris Slade Rejoins AC/DC

Chris Slade

Blabbermouth claims Phil Rudd won’t be playing with AC/DC at the Grammys this weekend. Instead, rumor has it Chris Slade will man the kit.

AC/DC Rumored To Perform At Grammy Awards


Ah, who gives a fuck? Really, that’s kinda fucking lame. I know AC/DC stopped being cool a while ago, but playing the Grammys certifies it for the unwitting. The Grammy Awards don’t matter. They’re essentially a celebration of all things pop, with the rest of the genres basically ignored during the televised show. The Grammys […]

Phil in court

That was quick. A New Zealand police charge of “attempting to procure murder” against AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has been dropped.

Phil in court

Phil Rudd’s been a very bad boy. The AC/DC drummer has been charged by New Zealand police with attempting to procure a murder. He pulled a Tim Lambesis. Rudd also faces charges of possessing the drugs methamphetamine and cannabis, and of threatening to kill. I’m surprised cannabis isn’t legal in New Zealand. Seems those folks […]

AC/DC Detail Next Disc

Rock Or Bust

I know most people could give a flying fuck less about AC/DC, but they’re an important band for reasons I don’t care to get in to with you right now. Sorry, but, I simply don’t have the time to ramble on about the social and musical merits of AC/DC. Not right now. So fuck off. […]

Readers’ Bands: Are Love Cream For Real?

Love Cream

So, I can’t figure out if Love Cream’s a joke band or what. I mean, part of me feels like they’re Australia’s Steel Panther without the hair nation getups. But listening to them, you can tell that they’ve got chops. They almost sound like AC/DC crossed with Def Leppard. But, they’re called Love Cream. Cum, […]
