Sounds like the perfect rock star life to me! Live the livestyle without
having to be creative and churn out product on schedule. ;-) AC/DC is
finally getting the hang of this too...for awhile they understood the part
about putting out the same album, but they're just now catching on to what
makes Boston so brilliant- their spacing between albums. And when's the
last time AC/DC toured? '95?

I figure they can find plenty of bands to sue. If I were AC/DC I'd get some
lawyers to find out which riffs they can sue a band for using without being
sued in turn by the estate of some dead blues hero.

"Money for nothin' and your chicks for free." The rock 'n' roll dream.


P.S. I like AC/DC a lot, even if all their albums are the same. And Boston
indirectly led me to purchase my first BOC tape (AOF/Spectres 2-fer), so
they can't be all bad. In fact, you could say Boston and AC/DC had a lot to
do with my eventual love of BOC and HW. Go figure.
