Greta Van Fleet bassist Sam Kiszka revealed the secret behind Angus Young and Malcolm Young’s trademark AC/DC guitar sound amidst rumors that the Australian band are returning for a tour with Brian Johnson, Phil Rudd, and Cliff Williams back in the fold. Alternative Nation transcribed Kiszka’s comments about AC/DC, and if he might visit a historic site from the band’s history when Greta Van Fleet come to Australia for a new tour, after canceling a previous run of shows for a heartbreaking reason. AC/DC made a bombshell announcement in New York on Friday.
The interviewer said, “Who are some of your favorites? There are so many like you said, AC/DC, who are some of the bands that you grew up listening to from Australia?”
Kiszka responded, “Man oh man, I think, I mean really, AC/DC is kind the epitome of the hard chordy rock. Something that I really appreciate that came from Australia is Vance Joy. I’m a fan of his work too, a contemporary artist.”
The interviewer asked, “When you guys play in Melbourne, when you play at the Forum theater, if you walk one block back towards the city, you’ll actually be standing on the corner where AC/DC shot ‘It’s A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock and Roll)” video.”
Kiszka laughed and responded, “Well, maybe we’ll check it out when we’re in the area.” Chris Cornell’s daughter revealed the bold truth about Greta Van Fleet a couple of days ago.
