We got good news on the AC/DC front this week when we learned that Brendan O’Brien would be producing their new album. He’s done great work for bands like Pearl Jam, Rage Against the Machine and Stone Temple Pilots. He also produced ‘Black Ice’ for AC/DC back in 2008. So what can we expect from the new AC/DC album? My guess is it will sound a lot like every other AC/DC album. That’s kinda been the secret to their success. If they wanted to get adventurous they could write their first ever ballad but let’s face it, that ain’t happening.
If they really want to shake things up, they could bring in fellow pseudo-Australian Barry Gibb to lay down some vocals. Check out this mash-up of Stayin’ Alive and Back In Black by Wax Audio and try and tell me Barry couldn’t contribute to AC/DC’s latest album in a powerful and meaningful way. Stop yourself!
