Baby.. I've been away too long, too long. You have my full attention, as usual. Let's try and pretend that I didn't miss last week's show. I know it's doesn't make up for it, but I listened to it 6 or 7 in retrospect. Baby.

I just read that Malcom Young died!
  11:23am GeorgeSimian:

“Today it is with deep heartfelt sadness that AC/DC has to announce the passing of Malcolm Young.

Malcolm, along with Angus, was the founder and creator of AC/DC. With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band.

“As a guitarist, songwriter and visionary he was a perfectionist and a unique man. He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted. He took great pride in all that he endeavoured.”
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 11:23am Frank Above:

Yes, Malcolm has been sick for awhile.
  11:23am zak:

Malcolm Young will never die!

that Revelons record reminds me of a topic for discussion: remember the records that got "girlfriended" - the relationship ended and you left records at her place??
  12:43pm clarke:

the worst case scenario of records that got 'girlfriended' for me: Big Star #1 Record - stax copy - ouch!!!
