      AC/DC rock music: Badlands
    • Jan 28th 2019
     
    Just a bit of fun while we wait for some news, something occurred to me so I wanna put it out there I'm guessing this will be done in 5 comments max but here goes
    What's the most glaring difference ( in my opinion ) between Bon & Brian where the band is concerned and I'm not on about vocal capabilities ?
    Go...........
  1.  
    This one is easy.

    Bon: great lyrics
    Brian (and Malcolm and Angus): CRAP lyrics.

    Nothing to do with lyrics ( although I agree ) like I said just a bit of fun

    Bon is definitely more menacing whereas Brian seems more of the party animal. I love them both dearly.

    Yeah, definitely the other way around. Bon wasn't menacing at all. He was all funny and tongue in cheek, Brian was definitely more "menacing".

    Bon was sly and clever. Brian more the in your face type of guy.
  4.  
    Bon - Carry On Doctor
    Brian - Rita, Sue and Bob Too.


    *those outwith the UK might not get this.

    Bon used a Roget's Thesaurus to craft his lyrics
    Brian used Roger's Profanisaurus

    Bon was a double entendre man
    Brian more of a single entendre chap

    Again all very valid points however I'm thinking more of maybe a promotional angle rather than a performance angle

    Nope. Just a long time fan of the band.

    Not 100 percent sure I know what you mean by 'promotional' Badlands, but this would be my take:
    Great guys with great voices and big hearts.
    I would say the obvious difference is that Bon walked it like he talked it - and you can hear that in the songs.
    Brian feels more down-to-earth, a more in-control kind of guy - but there'a steadiness and reliability and in-it-for-the-long-haul commitment about him that, in its own way, is as rock n roll as anything.

    You see for me Brian is way more Carry On :) There's a toughness to Bon's wit - it's more Joe Orton!
  9.  
    Bon is way more vivacious. Brian is way more down to earth.
  10.  
    The most glaring difference?

    Brian wears a hat. Bon didn't.
  11.  
    bon sang about what he had done
    brian sang what he was told to sing

    A little fun. My totally reasonable thread about KISS doing playback now vs would you go IF acdc would do it was deleted. I find that funny.
