Okay, picked up the new AC/DC CD (Black Ice) at WalMart, but only because that was the only place you could buy it. I'm not sure how I really feel about these WalMart exclusives, but it does seem to work out for the bands. In the last couple of years, I've purchased the Eagles, Loverboy, Journey and now AC/DC there. But I digress...
I listened to most of the disc yesterday while getting the oil changed, and it sounds like...AC/DC. I was hoping for more of the Back In Black days, but that will probably never come again. It's been said before that AC/DC has been playing the same song for the past 30+ years, and it sounds like it again. It rocks, but it's pretty generic rock. WalMart did have a bunch of their back catalog on sale for $7, so I also picked up High Voltage. Bought the new Rick Springfield too (stop it!), and it's decent enough pop/rock. The first song sounds a lot like "Jessie's Girl", but I suppose that's a good thing.
I'm not going to date myself, but I've been using MySpace a bit this weekend. Mainly because my son and older daughter have gotten in to it, and it's a way to have fun with them.
Also bought the entire Rock Band 2 setup for my family this weekend, it is a BLAST! I purchased Guitar Hero III for my son a few weeks ago and picked up the first Rock Band for a song (pun intended) from eBay earlier this week. While Guitar Hero III is fun, RB2 is better yet. I like having everything wireless. I see GH-WT comes out this week too. I'm wondering if the video game music business is like radio of 25 years ago...the "new" way to find out about music. It seems to have spurred music interest in my kids.
