This week Allan welcomes back Angus Young of AC/DC for a brand new interview. For the first time Angus sits down to discuss the story behind each track of BLACK ICE. AC/DC has been on the Allan Handelman Show for every album and tour since HIGHWAY TO HELL in 1979. It was then Allan did his first and sadly last interview with Bon Scott.
From the time they hit the stage the explosive riffs never let up. The momentum and just amazes me. Just when you think he's got to take a break it gets more intense. When you add Brian's explosive voice and the Steam Engine, rhythm and beat from Malcolm, Cliff and Phil. The AC/DC experience is the benchmark of performance in your mind for the rest of your life.
Long time listeners to the Allan Handelman Show know that among the many great bands Allan has spoken to over the years, AC/DC still remain in a very special category. We all know with radio the way it is today, Classic Rock artists with new music can't get airtime on "Classic Rock" stations let alone "New Rock" stations. The one exception AC/DC, BLACK ICE actually premiered on both New and Classic Rock stations in October and remains in regular rotation.
AC/DC has sold more than 200 Million Albums world wide, putting them in the league with the Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd, and surpassing U2 by a over 30 million.
Also tonight, Malcolm Young from the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame. Also a great segment from the archives where Brian and Angus took calls from Allan's radio and internet listeners all night.
