A couple of years ago it was a damn sight more entertaining than the Crystal Palace vs. Manchester United FA Cup final.

Who would of bet that in the 10 years after the eventual release of Chinese Democracy that Axl would have reunited with the near original line up of G'N'R and seemingly replaced Brian Johnson in AC/DC :lol:

I was having a conversation about AC/DC the other night and said that Angus isn't the type to retire. Funnily enough the other person was adamant that they had officially* called it a day. Seems I was right if that link is legit. :D

I don't think he knows anything else apart from playing TBH. I can't see him sitting at home wearing carpet slippers somehow.

*Officially in having made official statements that they were no more, which had been published in the press.

He doesn't feel the need to explain himself (which is why the promos with Axl looked odd prior to the tour!) - apparently (usual caveats) he had a 10 year plan for the end of ACDC and Jonno's hearing issues upset that, so no stopping, no sentimentality, get on with it.

I think Cheddar Man looks like Ian Gillan after a holiday in the Bahamas.

It seems to me there are only about 3/4 the number of street lamps there used to be, and the light is not as bright either.

It's to compensate for car headlights being 5 times as bright as they used to be, I swear I'm nearly blinded looking in the rear view mirror sometimes, it's like being followed by someone using floodlights.

the proliferation of builders skips in london means that you can't go for a walk at night because you can't see the dog crap on the pitch dark pavement- might have to take a torch out

Notifications for all!

Also, does that work just for the post I clicked "quote post" on, or does it automatically happen to the email of anyone who's username I quote?
