Shows the initial preparation for legendary rockers never did, and former bassist Mark Evans was with the group from 1975 to 1977 - admits that he never changed his attitude as his success grew.

He said: "There were no rehearsals! My very first gig with them was totally spontaneous. This was after the audition. I went to see them at a local pub, saw them play one set, and then I went on stage with them and played the second set.

"For our first tour of England, they band rented a rehearsal space, but I think we mainly played some Elvis Presley songs.

"Real rehearsals - you know, running through the tunes and making sure everything was right - that stuff didn't happen."

Mark also revealed that they were written as a studio session recorded songs were the same as most.

He explained to website MusicRadar: "Songs would be written in the studio. No demos. Angus [Young] and Malcolm [Young] would play things for George Young, and the tunes would be assembled right there. Once we had the skeleton of a song, we'd record it.

"Angus was full-on in the studio. When it was time for him to record his solos, he'd jump around and bounce off the walls, just like he would on stage. It was impossible for him to play and sit still. For rhythm tracks, he was somewhat subdued, but for solos, he went wild."

AC/DC singer Brian Johnson is passionate about cars

AC/DC singer Brian Johnson is passionate about cars as he is about rock music and to prove it, he competed at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion this weekend, driving a 1965 Lola T-70 amid 550 other historic vehicles that competed in 17 groups.

Johnson was the first time to participate in this contest and he vowed that it would not be his last.

Johnson, 63, told Speed TV, “This is my first time here at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion and my first time at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. But I’m going to come here for the rest of my life, and that’s a promise.”

Johnson racing inevitably compared to this song, since the two subjects, two things he knows very little about, saying, “You don’t give everything away at the first corner, just as you never give away everything at the start of a show. You have to keep it steady and then you build and build, and you get faster and smoother while building to a crescendo and leaving the crowd wanting more.”

He continued, “In both, you have a team of guys who make it all possible. In actuality, the car belongs to the crew; as a driver you are just borrowing it for a while. The main thing is to always stay calm; it is always a challenge when I get into a race car. Having driven this Lola, I really appreciate the guys who raced these cars in the 1960s. It’s no wonder they called them widow makers.”

In proceedings before the weekend, Johnson showed his skills, while 42 cases have come out with an impressive seventh, traversing a thrilling track with hairpin turns and a road curve called “The Corkscrew” in order to determine his grid position.

The singer has been an avid racer for 14 years, albeit in on-off fashion. That’s due to the fact that he has a pretty killer day job as, you know, in the history of the most successful and respected singer of rock band. It’s a trade-off, but he is able to indulge both passions

Johnson said, “Unfortunately, because of my day job where I am traveling for a couple of years at a time, I have to keep coming back and re-learning the driving technique. It is such a privilege to be sitting in a car that really good drivers once drove. Keeping the car on the track and coming anywhere close to what the original drivers have done is an achievement.”

Johnson to the next pit stop? January 2012 Rolex 24 at Daytona race in the event of their lifetime dream to be dissatisfied.

Bozza glow when she came to write liner notes, says he wants "been wanting to say that stuff for a long time.”

He told Ultimate Classic Rock, “I used to be the kid at Rolling Stone who would always say, ‘Why aren’t you putting AC/DC in the “Greatest Guitar Players of All-Time” issue?’ and all that stuff”.

“They would say, ‘Would you just shut up with the AC/DC,’ but I wouldn’t,” he added. “…So, [with the liner notes and the book] I finally was completely given the chance to make the argument I’ve been wanting to make for a very long time.”

Bozza's eyes, music critics AC / DC really have not any respect yet.

He added, “It just changed recently. One of the things that I wrote about in the book, on the eve of the Black Ice tour, they were suddenly getting all of that stuff. Before, they were always begrudgingly accepted.”

He said critics, was thinking AC / DC Rock was "doing their sort of tongue in cheek" rock ’n’ roll and the musicality of the band ignored the naysayers.

He said, “There was a lack of taking them seriously as musicians. It was like grudgingly saying NASCAR was important, like, ‘Look at all these people with bad taste in the world.’”

"When I was 16 and did my first gig I was so terrified, where other guys who maybe weren't as good had bags of confidence. Of course as the years went by I got more confident. I'm just terrified these shows might knock the stuffing out of a guy who is nervous."

AC/DC's Angus Young said at the age of 56 relatively easy tour to take

Angus Young said that at the age of 56 relatively easy tour to take with, though this way of life has taken in Toll.

AC/DC in June 2010 completing two years traveling the world and think about a 2008 album Black Ice started to follow.

And
guitarist reveals secret of pulling off her school uniform to show their strength outfit's forum.

Young tells the Toronto Sun: “I’m lucky – I’ve got a switch. I’ve got another persona: I put on the school suit and I become stronger, more powerful. Even my vision becomes better.

“But you do get these things that happen. On that tour I had a leg thing. It wasn’t a hamstring – the doctor said it was something like a tube. But it was affecting me more offstage. Once I went onstage it was fine.”

With AC / DC 40th anniversary is in two years time, guitarist on the road can be taxing life merges. “After the tour I stayed in bed for about a week. But then I took the guitar down in the studio and started hammering away. I did a few jigsaw puzzles too – I got hooked on them.”

The band recently confirmed that they are working on a new album, and they show their Black Ice tour of scale competitors will follow with.

“It’s still early, but we’re hoping it comes quick. The only formula for when Malcolm and I write is: there’s no formula. Sometimes you have boxes and boxes of ideas. In our case we have rooms full of them. It’s just a matter of taking the best. And probably because we’re brothers we find it easy to say, ‘That’s good, that’s crap, that’s good,’ and so on.”

And Young and his brother Malcolm in the rhythm band set to work to undo the ability to perform election warned against: “He’s the engine room, and what he does is unique. There are very few guitarists like Malcolm in the world, who say, ‘I just want to stand here and play a good rhythm.’

“Don’t underestimate him – he can do solos and do them well. In beginning when we used to play bars he and I would swap. Then he just said, ‘I’ll concentrate on the backing and you can do all the colourful stuff.’”

Singer Brian Johnson agrees with Young’s assessment: “There’s no imitating Malcolm. I’ve seen people try to play You Shook Me All Night Long or Highway to Hell, and these are good players – but they do it wrong. I don’t know what it is, and obviously, neither do they.”
