    If hack Brett Buchanan couldn’t use the word “devastated” for one week he would have writers block.

    Brett, nice article but Chris Slade is not an AC/DC icon. He was a hired gun. Phil Rudd is an icon.
    Just like Stevie Young is not an icon. He is a family member who fills in when needed.
