The Globe Liked AC/DC, Too

I don't really have enough superlatives to describe last night's show, which still has me shaking just a little bit. The Boston Globe, to its credit, produced a very good review that sums up pretty well my thoughts about the concert. Also, check out the Globe's small collection of reader comments on the AC/DC spectacular. This show is getting pretty much universal praise.

Hopefully the youngsters out there who are trying to rock (if there still are any) will take a lesson from these guys. Keep it simple, keep it fun and never deviate from your roots. In-your-face, hard-driving rock 'n roll works every time, especially live. AC/DC doesn't get fancy and hasn't ever deviated into sappy ballads (hello, "November Rain") or stilted protest songs. I know what I'm going to get from AC/DC, and I know that I'm going to like it. I just hope that I get to see these guys again before their touring days are done.

And Angus Young, please tell me how you do it. Your energy is amazing. I was physically whipped after just watching that show last night. I can't imagine what it must be like for Angus (who must be 50-something by now) to go out and put every last ounce of his being into every show, night after night. Simply amazing.
