AC/DC V's Henry Rollins & The Hard-Ons

AC/DC

AC/DC surely need no introduction. Possibly Australia's most famous and successful band. Bon Scott was from Fremantle, the port city 30 mins south of Perth.

Henry Rollins was the lead vocalist for Black Flag and has had a successful solo career, with both musical and spoken word releases and performances. He is also a storyteller, author, actor, poet, comedian, and radio and TV personality.

The Hard-Ons have had 17 consecutive number 1’s on the independent charts in Australia. TV appearances on major shows in Japan, England, Germany, Finland, Spain, France and Greece! A top 10 hit in Spain, a top 5 hit in Greece! The only Australian band still based in Australia to hit the top 5 in the NME charts (in 1989, with LP "Love is a Battlefield of Wounded Hearts"). If you don't know the Hard-Ons, it's time you did.
