    it obviously won't sound as a true DC tune, it was written by Alex Young for the band

    I'm convinced it's AC/DC with Alex singing.

    EDIT: Well well, it looks like my gut instinct was correct? ;)

    It is only Bon that is featured in this song.

    Bon Scott – background vocals
    Gerhard Wahl – guitar
    Wolf Hoffman – guitar
    Udo Dirkschneider – lead vocals
    Dieter Rubach – bass guitar
    Frank Friedrich – drums

    Hardly AC/DC then is it?

    That begs the question - why did Wolf say AC/DC's is way better if they never played it? Not only that, but why would Wolf himself say that Alex brought a tape of the band playing it with Bon singing?

    There's no fucking way that's Udo singing, That's Alex for sure. The drums are also extremely Rudd-like. Also, why would Bon pop into the studio JUST to record two choruses for a lesser-tier band's shitty demo?

    Well, to be fair, Alex Young practically took it to the grave refusing to have this released... But what a load of shit.

    That bit where the chorus starts..."I'm a.." sounds so much like Bon, I felt chills..

    Anyone still have a copy of this that they'd be willing to shoot my way? Lost mine. :(

    I need a copy too.. Everyone who said this was a big let down, pfft.. It wasnt the holy grail we'd all been talking about for decades, but still a really cool document of what happened with that song, and Bon singing the chorus gave me chills as well. No doubt that is Bon

    It didn't hit me until a few months later how fucking awesome the recording is.

    Despite powersurge words, for me the matter is not clear. I mean, for years accept people said there was an ACDC version.
    By the way, i do like the song too.

    Pete from Accept said AC/DC's was much better than their result a few years ago. I think he heard it again when the band was on the BI tour. Makes me wonder if there's a full-fledged demo out there that doesn't sound like it was caught on one mic.
  19.  
    Maybe, but i was meaning another thing. I was talking about the musicians who recorded it. I still think that beside Bon, could be more ACDC members in this recording.

    Only non-AC/DC member I can hear is Alex.

    Yep. Nice to hear it again though. Although I did snag it at the time I haven't played it for years.

    I wonder if they also recorded some other stuff at this session?

    The Accept version sounds like the best song The Darkness never wrote.

    Hi, yes it's the same, my first upload was deleted by Youtube few years ago, so I upload it again, but for how long ? ;)

    Did Angus or Mal ever comment on this track?

    Alex apparently had a son also called Alex - anyone know what happened to him? I know Alex snr died a while back.

    So many of them are a fricken mystery. I can’t find much out about any of them. I couldn’t even find a photo of George’s wife Sandra after he died. I was just curious. Even Angus and Malcolm have always been careful and tight lipped about anything not band related, and even then a lot of that is unknown. Lol. I know very little about Alex, and Nothing about Steven (Stevie’s Dad). That family is tight lipped. And that’s ok too. I don’t fault them for that. They wouldn’t be so much of a secret in the US though. The media here is very nosy. I did read Alex died of Lung cancer I think. Everyone in that family must smoke like a chimney. =)
