    Highway to Hell

    My almost 14-year old daughter's current favorite song is 'Highway to Hell'. I tried to explain to her that it was from AC/DC an Ozzie band back in the late 70's.

    Her response was that I knew nothing about music...

    I love being a parent.

    Be happy that she's not blasting Justin Beiber out of her stereo and has good taste in music

    Who performs the version that she likes? AC/DC or a cover?

    Best let her keep thinking you know nothing Hilly. You sure don't want to explain the origin of the band's name.

    The high pitched screeching on Highway to Hell is similar to the high pitched screeching heard on most Thai TV drama programmes . listen so to some Thai lady screeching on TV for a few minutes, then go and listen to ACDC screeching for a few minutes .
    Neither are for me

    Better to find them there than not. A safe kid is one who has the tools to protect themselves as well as the knowledge.
    A wise parent will make sure they have them.

    Does that remark come from personal experience?

    Hey Billy, you also need to tell her that they started in the seventies and are still as strong and popular as ever today.

    Poor old Bon is banged up in Freo cemetery only 3k away from my gaff, not unusual to see the devotees gathering to pay there respects. They have an entrance devoted to him.

    The Bon Scott Gate.

    An Ex girl friend of mine was good friends of his parents, they lived in Spearwood just outside Freo.

    She told me they had a shit load of his Gold records hanging on there lounge room wall.

    I seen AC/DC back in 74 at Freo oval just as they hit the big time, next time was 76 when they supported Suzi Quatro at Beatty park pool here in Perth.

    Good memories I have. Might pop in and see Bon on the way home today.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    There is a statue of him on the waterfront at Freo.
    I have a great picture of a busker who plays regularly a lot of AC DC stuff on bagpipe at Freo Market but cannot post it.l

    I think AC/DC has now sold more albums that the Beatles, amazing given they don't sell online.

    Yes, the Bon Scott statue was debated for ages on where it would be placed, the vast majority wanted it in the park opposite Fremantle train station so it would be viewed by the masses that use that service everyday.

    Most tourists use the Train into Freo.

    But no, the bloody council went against popular opinion and placed down at the waterfront.

    Bunch of wankers.

    I might take a picture and post it up, bloody good statue actually.
