Lars Ulrich Explains What He Felt When He Saw AC/DC’s Live Performance With Bon Scott
During a recent interview with Classic Rock Magazine, Metallica drummer and mastermind Lars Ulrich talked about his experience seeing AC/DC live with Bon Scott.
In the conversation, Lars shared his thoughts about being in lockdown for a long time and revealed how much he missed being on the stage and playing in front of the audience.
Furthermore, he talked about the time when he saw AC/DC live as the opener band for Black Sabbath in 1976 and as a headliner in 1977. In both of them, Lars only impressed by one musician, Bon Scott.
Lars mentioned that Bon was looking so great on the stage that you couldn’t take your eyes off him. Also, Lars revealed some of the moves Bon did on the stage that really looked cool during the show.
Here is what Lars Ulrich said:
“I just think of how lucky I’ve been in the past, all the great shows I’ve seen. I saw Thin Lizzy multiple times between ’76 and ’80 – incredible. I saw Motörhead multiple times, ’79 to ’81 – insane.
I saw AC/DC open for Black Sabbath in 1976. And I saw AC/DC headline in Copenhagen in ’77, and Bon Scott was so great, you couldn’t take your eyes off him. That was Bon in his heyday, with the tight jeans, the tennis shoes, the shirt off.
And I loved the way he would hold the mic with the cord rolled up two or three times. And he would stand out there at the very edge of the stage when he wasn’t singing, stand over on Malcolm’s side and let Angus bounce around in front of him…”
