AC/DC’s Secret To Being The Greatest Rock And Roll Band, Chris Robertson Explains

In a recent interview with ‘Paltrocast,’ Chris Robertson shared his feelings about the ‘Southern rock’ tag that is sometimes attached to Black Stone Cherry’s name and AC/DC’s secret to being the ‘greatest rock and roll band that ever existed.’

The singer first shared his feelings about the ‘Southern rock’ tag name and whether they qualified for the genre:

“Hell, I don’t know. I talk like I talk, I’m from where I’m from, but at the end of the day, I like Black Stone Cherry just being classified as good music. If that’s what you think, and if you think it’s shit music, classify it as that. But it’s music for any kind of feeling. At the end of the day, you’re putting yourself in a box; it only does that. So we’ve never said, ‘We’re this kind of band’ or ‘We’re this kind of band.'”

Chris then continued by revealing why AC/DC was regarded the ‘greatest rock band’ of all time, saying how ‘simplicity’ was the key for both Black Stone Cherry and the Aussie act:

“At the heart of it, we’re a rock and roll band, but we’re a lot more than just a rock and roll band at the same time. And there’s nothing wrong with being just a rock and roll band. AC/DC is the greatest rock and roll band that ever did exist, and they do it in a way that nobody can f*ck with them when they do it.”

All in all, the singer believes the band is about making great music no matter the label. For fans who are on this journey with the Black Stone Cherry, the band is gearing up to release their eighth studio album, ‘Screamin’ At The Sky,’ on September 29th. In the meantime, you can listen to the band’s cover of ‘What’s Love Got to Do With It’ in honor of the late Tina Turner below.
