Welcome to my Music Diary – today for the 26th October!
On the 26th October 2008, the AC/DC album „Black Ice“ went to No.1 on the UK album charts.The LP became also No. 1 in 29 different countries (including USA, Canada and Australia). Originally released on the 17th October 2008, it was the long awaited follower to „Stiff Upper Lip“ (2000). The 15 new songs were recorded in March and April 2008 at The Warehouse Studio in Vancouver (Canada) and produced by Brendan O’Brien, who also worked with Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Bruce Springsteen (just to name a few).
The four singles issued from the album were „Rock ‚N‘ Roll Train„, „Big Jack„, „Anything Goes“ and „Money Made„.
The song „War Machine“ won a Grammy in the category „Best Hard Rock Performance“ (2010).
„Black Ice„ seems to be the final AC/DC studio album featuring rhythm guitarist and founding member Malcolm Young, who retired due to health issues in 2014.
