    I know Jeremy Clarkson can be a major twank at times but this interview with Brian Johnson for Top Gear is genius.

          Brian is not an aussie. He is English.

            Another cool story Dave

            Warms my heart to hear about people that make their living entertaining others whether it be musicians, athletes or actors actually recognizing that fact and not being some kind of jerk because they think they are better that the poor slob who just paid half a weeks wages to go see them for a few hours. Seems like there are a few good ones around


            I've been lucky enough, depending on how important you feel meeting "stars" is, to have met and known hundreds of major stars in my life. Big deal. I don't get star struck, or wank off to any of them, although some of the people I idolized as a kid still fascinate me.

            I got a list a mile long.
            Alot of them I've actually gotten to work with.
            Lots of them are good decent people, a few exceptional great people and some serious c#ks%#king aholes..
            Dude's like Kevin Costner and Kevin DuBrow come to mind as major toolbags, both of which I have known and worked with in a professional relationship and even friendship with Kevin DuBrow. That dude was hard to be around.

            My favorite " stars" are the ones you would never know were stars had you not been aware of their history.

            Brian is at the very top of the list of people I have met that have had major success and fame in their field and seem to have had it affect them negatively in no way whatsoever.

            He does a ****************load of philanthropic good deeds on a regular basis too.

            Extremely generous person.

            I am aware of absolutely zero negative experiences between people that have met him and if I heard one, I would have a very hard time believing it.

            Just a super cool dude.

            And as far as just watching him perform, even if you don't meet him, even if you don't like him as a singer, it is hard not to get caught up in his enthusiasm and charisma when he is performing.

            As a person, he is a hard guy not to like. I don't know of anyone that has been able to do it.

              Super cool guy. He's a major dude alright, but Bon's vocals were far superior.
              Sometimes you follow your heart. Sometimes your heart cuts a fart.

                EDIT: I types this on my phone and I am way too lazy to go back and fix all the autocorrect type errors.


                Did you type all that on your phone? I don't have the patience to type more than 2-3 paragraphs on my phone.

                  He's right up there. Brian Johnson is top notch in my opinion.

                    While that's an opinion, based on who you ask..... I think we all can agree that Bon's lyrics were far superior.
                    Actually, Brian hasn't wrote any AC/DC lyrics since 1988's "Blow up your video"...... but then again, I speculate that Young & Young have been writing 70-80% of the lyrics the whole time anyway. So perhaps it was the brothers who were younger & fresher during Bon's time.

                        I like how the interviewer asked how he still had a voice after all these years. He has a great one, but sure sounds like it should be shot by now, I'm glad it's not.

                        Dave, you should meet us over in Pinellas Park/Clearwater for our Dean guitar thing next February, it's always a good time and Elliott and the Dean crew take very good care of us!

                          That sounds cool,if I am here in Feb.

                          I've known Elliot since he owned the original Thourobred music on Nebraska Ave in Tampa back in the early eighties.

                          You should come hang out at one of our shows some time. We love having people sit in with us. We don't play around Tampa as much as we play farther north, but we do play at the Watering Trough in Largo on 66 th street the last thursday of every month.

                          Even if you are not all that much into country, thursday nights are ladies night and we get literally five to seven hundred people packed in there every show. A large percentage of them are incredibly beautiful young country girls. I've never seen a hotter collection of girls in one place, really anywhere.

                          Seeing a couple hundred country beauties at a time all out on the dance floor dancing to Red Neck Girl, or Watermelon Crawl is a sight to behold. It is one of our favorite regular gigs.

                          Anyway, we should hook up sometime. I didn't know you were local.

                          Closest we will be around here this weekend is either Zephyrhills saturday night, or Floral City saturday. The rest of our shows are alot further away.

                          The watering trough is one of the only places we play strictly country. Most other places, we play a little bit of everything. We know over a thousand songs, so chances are, if you bring your guitar, or don't mind playing a strat, we would have a bunch of songs in common you could sit in on.

                          Or play bass, or sing, whatever.

                          We love having people sit in.

                          Send me a p.m. if you are interested.
