“What’s his name? Tell me the bass player’s name from Kiss?” – Bon Scott
Tune into the Fuzz Factory TONIGHT from 8-11 PM (EST). Tonight, I compare/contrast AC/DC and Kiss. Why? Well, they’re both two bands from my earliest record buying days. As a kid, I bought vinyl from both bands. Also, as a young boy, it’s easy to see how both bands caught my attention with their looks and hooks. I still remember listening to Kiss albums after Cub Scout meetings. Kiss and AC/DC grabbed my ear with their riffs. Especially those from AC/DC, who are far superior musicians overall.
In addition, it’s so true. Neither AC/DC and Kiss are known for their sophisticated lyrical content. In fact, they’re masters of the obvious sexual innuendo as well. Sometimes it’s good to just say fuck it to eloquent language. Seems right for a hot summer night.
The word is out that Malcolm Young has suffered a stroke serious enough to affect the way he plays guitar. Malcolm Young was the glue. Therefore, AC/DC is no more, after 41 years. Sad but true.
