Can’t believe it has been 39 years since AC/DC released ‘Back in Black’ ~ what an absolute ripper album!!! It went straight to number one and has gone on to sell over 50 million copies! ‘Back in Black’ ended up being a tribute to Bon Scott and the first LP with new singer, Brian Johnson. Bon may have died, but Rock and Roll didn’t…
