A Podcast Where Extraordinary Fans Salute This Extraordinary Band

    S2E5 - Wade Sickler

    S2E5 - Wade Sickler

    How much would you pay for a guitar lesson with Angus Young? Meet Wade Sickler, investment manager from Bozeman, Montana, who back in 2000, doubled down for the chance of a lifetime to receive a one-on-one guitar lesson from none other than Angus Young himself. How did he pull that off? Well, let’s just say, Moneytalks!During Episode 5 from Season 2, this bus boy turned money manager goes into great detail for the first time about the bidding war, being gifted a signature cherry red Gibson SG from Angus, jamming for hours with the entire band, and essentially landing a golden ticket to see the band play on tour anywhere in the world. For fans where no dollar value is too great to celebrate this magic thing called AC/DC, this episode honors those who put their money where their mouth is.

    S2E3 - Bob Defrin

    Ever wonder who's responsible for that iconic AC/DC logo? If you were one of those AC/DC fans who were first arrested by the sight of Angus Young impaled by his own Gibson SG, or being violently electrocuted, or sprouting devil horns and tail—even before hearing a single chord—then have we got an episode for you. Meet Bob Defrin, AC/DC's veteran art director, responsible for helping one of the greatest bands of all time become one of the greatest brands of all time. Just sit back and relax as Bob curates the stories behind every single one of his AC/DC album designs, cover to cover. If You Want Bob (you've got it).

    S2E2 - Lee Robinson

    It turns out that AC/DC’s search for a new singer, back when Brian Johnson's hearing loss forced him to leave the Rock or Bust tour, did not begin and end with Axl Rose, who was eventually (spoiler alert) announced as Brian's replacement. Out of the four known auditions for this gig of a lifetime, Lee Robinson, frontman of the AC/DC tribute band Thunderstruck out of Raleigh, North Carolina, shares his incredible experience how, for one day, he was able to stand in the shoes of Brian & Bon to sing in the presence of rock ’n' roll icons.

    S2E1 - Lemmy

    S2E1 - Lemmy

    Are we kicking off Season 2 with a posthumous interview from Lemmy? You bet your Ace of Spaces we are! Does our favorite mutton-chopped Motörhead treat us to some juicy AC/DC stories? Well, not exactly. But it’s freakin' Lemmy! Who cares? Listen to how this beloved rock 'n' roll icon admits to likening his own band to AC/DC as “birds of a feather”, tries to impress a date by bringing her backstage (witnessing Bon Scott collapse), contemplate his favorite AC/DC track (including the one he covered), and answering the immortal question: Lemmy or God? Forget the Joker on this episode, Lemmy's got the Jack...& Coke.

    Behind Beyond The Thunder - Part 1

    Behind Beyond The Thunder - Part 1

    Often told by many, including the people being interviewed, that their own "behind the scenes" adventures were just as interesting as their main objective (to find out why AC/DC matters), in this 1st installment and bridge between seasons, engineer Eric Kielb sits down with co-creators, Gregg Ferguson & Kurt Squiers to discuss the origins of 'Beyond the Thunder', how the duo were shot down in flames, the unlikely metamorphosis into a podcast, and what to expect for Season Two. Maybe it is the journey and not the destination, after all?
