  • The AC/DC of Bon Scott was never ever matched by the Brian Johnson AC/DC. Johnson really did a heroic job in handling the job that Bon did, but he was never ever a shade from tha late Scott. Scott had a better voice, MUCH better lyrics, much more charm and tone variations in his voice.Johnson managed to be a part of the marvellous BACK IN BLACK album, but a few years later his voice was totally shot. He’s a very important part of the band, that lives like the Stones do, for example: an entity, a myth.DIRTY DEEDS DONE DIRT CHEAP was released in Australia in 1976, but Atlantic shelved it for the American market and simply did not release it. THey simply tought it was not good enough. Only after Bon died and after the success of BACK IN BLACK, they released it in America, in 1981 (FIVE YEARS LATER!!). In doing so, they simply destroyed the original album, cutting from it possibly the best song: JAILBREAK. Go figure why…LOVE AT FIRST FEEL is a good song, but nowhere as good as JAILBREAK. And they added ROCKER, which was already available in the original Australian album T.N.T., sacking R.I.P (Rock In Peace).
