AC/DC MEMEBERS LEND TALENTS TO ‘CLASSIC ROCK CARES’ WITH NEW SONG:
June 18, 2007
Chain Gang On The Road, by Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams, Steve Luongo & Mark Hitt.
AC/DC bassist Cliff Williams and former John Entwistle Band drummer Steve Luongo met at a hurricane relief concert produced by the John Entwistle Foundation in 2005. The year that followed found Cliff and Steve jamming together when the opportunity arose. In 2007 they were joined in the studio by guitar virtuoso Mark Hitt and AC/DC vocalist Brian Johnson for a bit of fun.
In the months that followed this group of musicians did what all musicians do. They wrote and recorded music together. In the spring of 2007 Cliff and Brian agreed to lend their talents to a fund raising tour dubbed Classic Rock Cares. The proceeds from the tour will go to the foundation.s primary mission of free music education and instruments for underprivileged children through the public library system.
It was decided that in addition to their AC/DC hits Cliff and Brian would perform some new material as well. Chain Gang On The Road (which can be heard at www.johnentwistle.org/crc/crc.html) is a sample of what people can expect in addition to the AC/DC hits. There was never a plan for this music and the only plan currently is to enjoy performing it while helping those in need.
