    Airbourne does work, well they work for me. O’Keeffe isn’t deliberately trying to sound like Scott or Johnson, he just does. Yes, Airbourne’s sound is very similar to AC/DC, but the difference is in the songs.

      I think it’s just an Aussie rock sound…Oi.even Angry Anderson of Rose Tattoo has an AC/DC influence to his voice.

      PS-Went there back in ’01, LOVED it. But, the 22 hour plane ride? Not so much.

    I would love to visit Australia, but I don’t think I could handle a 22 hour flight! A cruise, maybe, but not a long flight like that.

    • Dana on

      A cruise would take weeks to get there, maybe even a month or more? Yes, the plane ride was ponderous.

      I think I watched over six movies,and the flight plan. I remember seeing the plane fly over Japan, and there was still 10 hours to go!!

    The GRAMMY’s also awarded Jethro Tull best of in the Heavy Metal category, so GVF being nominated, is basically a nothing burger, and quite expected, since the NARAS voters are completely clueless.

    22 hours? Did the seats recline enough? How was the food? Did they serve drinks?

    I saw Rose Tattoo too, I am trying to remember who they opened for… I want to say Aersomith on the Rock in A Hard Place tour…I am going to see if I can google something..I was right…that was the tour…I liked them enough when I saw them….I thought they were weird…lol…I won’t get into it with you about Airbourne, Dana…Doug R., ….lol…
    You know, another reason that these classic records work so well, I hope Ed is reading this..is because of all that pre-production…i.e., that material was lived with for a good four weeks before they recorded it…that’s why Phil Rudd is so slamming on those records; he had the luxury of getting really comfortable with the material and that intensity comes through on the records….now, they just learn the song, play through it a couple of times and then piece it together on pro tools…With pre-production, those grooves get to this whole other level…like with those classic AC/DC records; those songs are so simple and you wonder why they sound like that; it’s the pre-production time where Phil sat in those grooves for a few weeks first and attained that muscle memory where there’s this reflex like action in the grooves…that’s what sets those classic records apart too.

      22 hours? Did the seats recline enough? How was the food? Did they serve drinks?

      Yes, we flew Quantas out of JFK International Airport in NYC. It was six hours from NY to LA. Then, we had a one hour layover at LAX, so they could refuel the plane, and pick up additional passengers.

      Unfortunately, a flight was canceled, so our plane ended up being totally full from LA to Sydney, which was 16 hours.

      My mother was smart enough to get us bulk head seats (which they charge extra for now), so we had some additional leg room. The seats reclined, and I think they served quite a few meals (I can’t quite remember, maybe four or five?) but I slept through a few of them, after being awake for many hours. I cannot sleep on planes, but after being up for so long, I eventually fell konked out.

      On the plus side, Australia is 16 hours ahead of NYC, so I had no jet lag. On the negative side, we got stuck sitting next to a couple who boarded in LA (from the canceled flight), and the female had a NASTY cough. She explained that she caught a bug in Morooco (God knows what it was) and I was just praying that my mother and I did not get catch it. Thankfully, we did not.

      While I LOVED Australia, I don’t think I could make that kind of trip, again. If I did, I would have to spend a few days in LA, before flying 16 hours to Australia.

      FYI, my mother and I went there right after 9/11. Since, we live four miles from ground zero, I wanted to get as far away as possible.

    Dana, I liked that you mentioned the Aussie band Rose Tattoo. I think it’s nice to mention great “under the radar” bands on this site to give them some exposure, too. Who knows, you may have inspired somebody to check ’em out, they way you inspired me to check out Tora Tora and Airbourne…

    • Dana on

      Thank you, Rattle,

      I am so glad you like T2 and Airbourne, I love ’em both.

      D 🙂
