Who needs more cowbell when you’ve got bagpipes?
Who, except AC/DC would think to use bagpipes in a rock song? Well, a few other groups, like Paul McCartney and Wings, Nazareth, and U2, have done it, but none so successfully as AC/DC in their tune “It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘n Roll)” from the 1975 T.N.T. album. Bon Scott actually learned the bagpipes specifically for this song, and it’s one of my favorites.
This band has sang me through elation, and anger, and heartbreak, and horniness. I wore out more cassettes of Back in Black in my Pioneer tape deck, with the Kraco speakers, than I care to count.
AC/DC is hands-down, one of the all-time best rock bands in the history of EVER, and if you don’t agree with me, well then you can just kiss my fat bottom girl ass.
Speedy healing to you Malcolm Young, and I hope you’re back blowing some shit up with the band real soon.
Now crank it!
