AC/DC’s back catalogue is now available to stream for the first time.
They’ve long held out against putting their material on streaming services and were initially reluctant to issue their work on iTunes.
In 2011, mainman Angus Young told Sky News (via the Guardian): “We are a band who started off with albums and that’s how we’ve always been. We always were a band that if you heard something on the radio, well, that’s only three minutes. Usually the best tracks were on the albums.”
Their catalogue became available on Apple’s download service the following year.
Drummer Phil Rudd will be sentenced for threatening to kill and possession of drugs on July 9. He’s been replaced in the touring lineup by returning sticksman Chris Slade.
Former frontman Bon Scott is the cover star in the latest edition of Classic Rock magazine – out now in print, digitally and via TeamRock+.
