Every guitarist I would cross paths with would tell me that I should have a flashy guitar, whatever the latest fashion model was, and I used to say, 'Why? Mine works, doesn't it? It's a piece of wood and six strings, and it works.'
I'm sick to death of people saying we've made 11 albums that sounds exactly the same, Infact, we've made 12 albums that sound exactly the same.
I just go where the guitar takes me.
We're a rock group. we're noisy, rowdy, sensational and weird.
There are all sorts of cute puppy dogs, but it doesn't stop people from going out and buying Dobermans.
Yes, we're still five little people with a noisy attitude.
I saw Deep Purple live once and I paid money for it and I thought, 'Geez, this is ridiculous.' You just see through all that sort of stuff. I never liked those Deep Purples or those sort of things. I always hated it. I always thought it was a poor man's Led Zeppelin.
A lot of people say, 'AC/DC - that's the band with the little guy who runs around in school shorts!'
When I'm on stage the savage in me is released. It's like going back to being a cave man. It takes me six hours to come down after a show.
A lot of times you'll hear bands and it's a different sound coming out than what's on stage. Because you can clean it up through a PA and make it sound completely different than what they really sound like.
My part in AC/DC is just adding the color on top.
Soloing was pretty easy for me because it was probably the first thing I've ever done.
I wouldn't know any newer bands. We're past the pimple stage.
Actually, because I'm so small, when I strike an open A chord I get physically thrown to the left, and when I play an open G chord I go right. That's how hard I play, and that's how a lot of my stage act has come about. I just go where the guitar takes me.
I remember one of the first gigs I played with that amp was at a local church. They wanted someone to fill in with the guitar and my friend say, 'Ah, he can play.' And so I dragged the amplifier down and started playing and everybody started yelling 'turn it down!'
