AC/DC Abruzzo has spent most of the last 48 hours in its Budapest post-sovietic bunker sorting out hundreds of photos, videos and planning the strategy for the 3 shows before the break. It's definitely not an easy job but someone has to do it. The accounting situation was another delicate issue on AC/DC's Abruzzo agenda. The recession forced us to skip the 2 German shows and left us in this Hungarian "limbo". We are struggling to find a way out.

Yesterday night, we visited an old friend of ours, Isti, met in England in 2001. We ended up drinking local Hungarian wines (and liquors) with other friends while watching this video about this WW2 tank on display that was unexpectedly started by protestors during a demonstration a few years ago.

Apparently, young Hungarians really get excited watching this.  Much more than watching porn, which is supposed to be one of the main products of Hungary. Porn has probably lost all its appeal due to the fact that you can find porn dvds, wrapped in red plastic, even in supermarkets here in Budapest.

Some of you asked why we listed the Abruzzese hit "Vola Vola" in our poll on the songs you would like to hear live. The reason is that some people claim that if you play certain parts of some specific Black Ice tracks backwards you get to hear this song. Apparently it is a tribute to Abruzzo by Angus and co. We don't know if this is true but 11% of respondents would like to hear AC/DC playing this song! Here's a classic version of Vola Vola for those who don't know it with a promotional clip of our beloved Abruzzo!

It ain't easy
Livin' like a gypsy
Tell ya honey how i feel
I've been dreamin'
Floatin' down the streamin'
Losin' touch with all that's real
(Steven Tyler - MAMA KIN - 1973)

Finally, Happy Birthday from AC/DC Abruzzo to Steven Tyler, personal friend of Brian and of the band, who celebrates his 61st birthday today!
