AC/DC ! Banging ‘Back In Black’ Birthday…

Back In Black, the seventh studio album of the imperishable Australian hard rockers AC/DC was released 35 Years ago – July 25, 1980 ! This record was a huge turning point for the band. Just before recordings started charismatic singer/frontman Bon Scott fell asleep in his car after a night of heavy alcohol consumption in a London club. He was found death, only 33, due to acute alcohol poisoning. The band decided to go on and Brian Johnson, an English singer/songwriter, was recruited as the new frontman. The fans stayed loyal and Back In Black became a Worldwide Bestseller (more than 50 million sold copies). The album’s all-black cover was designed as a sign of mourning for the sadly deceased Bon Scott.

I’m not really a devoted hard rock fan myself but like millions I can’t resist their Titanic Riffs ! Hail Hail AC/DC ! Here’s one of the album’s smashing highlights…
