Romania. It wasn’t like playing a booked gig. It was real life and it was horrific. There was nothing in the shops, there were bullet holes in everything.

ACDC are still relevant. Always open to new influences.
Somewhere in America on the London tour; a Super 8. I woke up in the morning to find a half-eaten piece of fruit on my bed side table with a massive trail of ants which had infested my room and bitten me twice on my chest.
