Dean Delray’s Let There Be Talk: Episode 555 features an interview with AC/DC’s Brian Johnson and Angus Young. As a big fan of AC/DC, I wanted to check this one out. They’ve got a new album coming out next month, and I thought this would be a good one. Unfortunately, the podcast’s host is a bit too much of a super fan and spent a lot of time talking about himself and his fandom before the episode kicks into the interview. And then the interview spends a lot of time on the past – Brian joining the band, them working on Back in Black, working on set lists, and just a little bit on the new album. It’s an okay interview, and it’s nice hearing from Brian and Angus, but it could have bit a lot better.
