I love Brian but I do not think we'll see him again on stage with AC/DC. I hope I'm wrong but the page is turned Imo.

Another evidence of "no Brian" is the way the guitars were tuned in ACDC. From 2008 on they were tuned to E flat and when Axl got the gig guitars were back to standard E.
Translation : Brian asked the guitars to be detuned (and all the songs to be played a semitone lower) cause it put less stress on his vocal chords.

I'm sure Angus was glad to see Axl had no problem with standard tuning : it gives the guitars an edge and aggression E flat tuning lacks.

Nice recording. Man, no one can make a stupid-simple 4/4 backbeat swing and groove like Phil Rudd. All in the hi-hat...the man is a magician.

I'm not a musician so I wasn't aware of this! Saw them on the Black Ice and Rock or Bust tours, bought both CD's as well as live DVD and the songs sounded the same to me, didn't seem like a lower key.

It's subtle but noticeable. It was definitely done to accommodate Brian's vocal limitations as he entered his 60s.

Well his natural speaking voice certainly is. I don't know how he screamed like that for over 30 years while smoking like a chimney.

When you listened to Bon talk, you could tell he had a naturally high voice, so his singing style was probably pretty natural-feeling to him, but Brian was practically putting his balls in a vice-grip to hit those screams.

Lol, I love his natural speaking voice and that Geordie accent. I wish AC/DC had taken more advantage of his low voice and did more blues over the years.

Listen to this cover of John Lee Hooker's Boom Boom on a French radio station (I think during promotion for Ballbreaker in 1995):

[www.youtube.com]

Could have been killer if they'd recorded a whole hardcore blues record in that vain.

exactly. he always had to use every ounce of his being to hit the notes in bon songs. the fact they eventually had to drop the tuning to songs isn't a shock

One of the coolest things as ever. I love how tiny Angus looks next to Keith, who's not that tall as it is. That guitar is just swimming on him.
