ARS81Sydney author Jesse Fink has recently released one of the most important publications on AC/DC: the eagerly awaited ‘Bon: The Last Highway’. Fink has become something of an AC/DC detective and shines light on parts of the AC/DC story which have always been dimly lit. Music fans around the world have been waiting for this book – and it does not disappoint. On show number 81 of The Australian Rock Show we are joined by Jesse Fink to talk about the new book – a little about his background, and much much more. Essential listening !

For only $25 you get a AC/DC Coolerbag, T shirt, Cap, Flag, Playing Cards, Belt, Sunglasses, bottle opener too. How long before one of these is up on eBay? These will no doubt escalate in value – so it might be worth your while squirreling one away for eBay. Mr. Rockbrat and I remember seeing KISS’ Showbags for sale at both the 1980 and 1981 Sydney show, and those bags went for ridiculous money in later years, so the AC/DC bag may just do the same. Check it out here. 

Friday the 12th November and the Rockbrat is in Melbourne. Here are some photo’s I took of AC/DC Lane. I’ve been meaning to find this place the past couple of visits but I made it here today.

It is dirty, mean and mighty unclean – and a fitting place of worship for AC/DC fans to assemble and salute their rock heroes every once in a while. If you call yourself AC/DC fan – go check this place out when you’re next in the Victorian capital.

” The ultimate rarity in any AC/DC collection. This album was in preparation by Alberts in 1978 but was never released. No record or test-pressing was actually ever manufactured, but a very small quantity of sleeves were printed. Certainly one of the rarest AC/DC item ever, due to the small print run and the fact that all copies remained in the Albert/EMI vaults, Only a handful of collectors are known to posses this gem “
