AC/DC Is Making Wine?

AC/DC Is Making Wine?


There's nothing sadder than seeing hardcore rockers go inevitably soft with age. Motley Crue's Mick Mars has had two hip replacements. Ozzy Osbourne tragically turned into a cartoon character. And now AC/DC is the latest to fall, in about the weirdest way possible.

They're making wine, and it's every bit as cheesy as you can imagine. Black in Black Shiraz, You Shook Me All Night Long Moscato, and...ugh, we can't make ourselves go any further. Even worse, they're not even putting out a line of beer, which you'd think would be both a no-brainer and more appealing to the fans.

True, AC/DC isn't the first band to decide to cash in all the chips and make a line of (fine?) wines. But it's usually one hit wonders like Warrant with their Cherry Pie Red or Whitesnake with some zinfandel they didn't even bother to name after the one song they have everybody knows. We expect these guys to shamelessly cash in on the one bit of fame they have.

AC/DC, on the other hand, is one of the best-selling bands on Earth, with massive concert tours that sell out. So, either the money was too good, or AC/DC all have massive gambling debts.

Either way, for the love of God, have the taste not to put out a Bon Scott Memorial Special Edition, guys. Some lines just shouldn't be crossed, even by the greatest of metal bands.
