University of Calgary, Department of Economics Discussion Paper 2007-08 -- On the Efficiency of AC/DC: Bon Scott versus Brian Johnson

I would, however, argue that the superior lyrics to "Shoot to Thrill" are at the root of any effect deemed more desirable vs. "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock & Roll)."

Oh fuck, I am laughing so hard right now.

I would have loved to sit in on a meeting with that dude and his faculty advisor.

I'm a Bon Scott man. I'd totally write a thesis on how HIGHWAY TO HELL was AC/DC's pinnacle, not BACK IN BLACK.

The brother is a grad student at Calgary. What are they doing to him up there in the Great White North?

I'll assuage y'all's fears -- it was a joke by an economics professor at Calgary. So he says. ;)

@ Mark -- Both BS and BJ have their places in my heart. Have you ever heard Mark Kozelek's cover of Bon Scott era AC/DC, What's Next to the Moon? Brilliant.

Yup, I've that album hanging about. As I say, the BS era: more interpretative, more bluesy.
