February 28th, 2016: Certainly it's been yet another long wait since the last update on this website, and I apologize for that! AC/DC has since been enjoying a very successful and massive WORLD TOUR supporting their fantastic album "Rock or Bust", now on the 2nd leg of the tour and still going strong.
Many new an cool AC/DC collectibles have surfaced since my last update, including some cool new AC/DC swag designed specifically for the different shows during the tour, you can find these all on the official AC/DC website

There are loads of great and rare photos in the book, which is printed in hard cover and is 203 pages. The back of the book also includes som great 8x10 photos of AC/DC from their 1976 Swedish photo session.

September 24th, 2014: AC/DC Announces title and release date for their new album "ROCK OR BUST"! Slated for a December 2nd release date in North America (November 28th in Australia), the brand new AC/DC album featuring nephew of Angus & Malcolm, Stevie Young on Rhythm Guitar. Sadly, it was also officially announced today that Malcolm will be retiring from the band due to his health complications.

July 23rd, 2014: A copy of AC/DC's rarest 7" (45RPM) single (featuring original singer Dave Evans on vocals) just sold on Ebay for a whopping $4,471 USD! The New Zealand-only Polydor label pressing of "Can I Sit Next To You Girl" b/w "Rockin' In The Parlour" fetched this new record price on the auction site Ebay today, July 23rd 2014. The obscurity of this single makes it one of the most sought after AC/DC records for collectors.
July 20th, 2014: Phil Rudd slated to release new solo album! Surprise ACCA DACCA fans! But AC/DC drummer, Phil Rudd has recently announced that he will be releasing a brand new solo album titled "Head Job" which is due August 29th.

April 16th, 2014: AC/DC make an official statement on acdc.com concerning Malcolm Young and AC/DC. This comes after the unfortunate circumstances of an idiot Australian "journalist" who decided to put Malcolm's personal health issues out to the public, stating that AC/DC are retiring, and reporting a variety of issues pertaining to Malcolm's situation (though nothing was ever confirmed by Malcolm, his family, AC/DC, AC/DC's management, or AC/DC's record company, go figure!...) Poor journalism at it's best. Here is the official statement from AC/DC & their management posted on the band's official website:
"After forty years of life dedicated to AC/DC, guitarist and founding member Malcolm Young is taking a break from the band due to ill health. Malcolm would like to thank the group’s diehard legions of fans worldwide for their never-ending love and support.
In light of this news, AC/DC asks that Malcolm and his family’s privacy be respected during this time. The band will continue to make music."
Here at ACDC Collector want to say... WE SALUTE YOU MALCOLM!! and GET WELL SOON, friend! We wish you all the best, and we THANK YOU for all of your years of music, dedication, and committment not only to AC/DC and to your fans, but to rock music in general. Thanks for keeping rock 'n roll alive. We're here for you now and always!
March 31st, 2014: Happy Birthday Angus Young! We salute you!!
March 22nd, 2014: Brian Johnson made a special guest appearance live on stage last night (3/21/14) at Billy Joel's concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City to perform AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long" to lucky fans!

According to BRIAN JOHNSON, AC/DC will be entering the studio (The Warehouse Studio, Vancouver B.C. Canada once again) this MAY to begin working on the follow up album to "Black Ice". According to Brian, who stated in a recent radio interview, tha the band will be heading there to record in May, and will likely be doing a 40th anniversary tour- probably playing 40 shows to commemorate the bands 40th anniversary. He also referred once again to one of the members of AC/DC being ill, but does not disclose any further information regarding the severity of the illness. Best wishes to a full and speedy recovery from acdccollector.com! We salute you, and will see you again on the Highway To Hell soon!
New AC/DC Bootlegs. Well there have been droves of those coming out yet again, and it's hard to keep up. I've spotted many for sale on sites such as Ebay and other collectible-vinyl sale sites and auction sites. Here are the most recent ones for the record:
Feel it When I Turn The Screw (3LP)
Welcome To The Circus LP (available Blue Vinyl, Green vinyl)
Guess Who Came To Play LP (available Blue Vinyl, Green vinyl)
If You Want Blood You've Got Munich LP(available Blue Vinyl, Green vinyl)
Long Promised Road LP
The Forgotten Jewels LP
Go On LP (Adelaide 15-4-76)
Cannons VS. Monsters (3LP)
AC/DC Kant Kino (7" single available "normal" release, gatefold, and test press (very limited)
Skool Daze (7" single, EURO version - available gatefold version, deluxe sleeve version)
Paris box set (picture disc box set, different than the Omnisport box set that's been around for a while, but probably the same concert?)
High Voltage Live in 75 LP
Soul Strippers Box Set
Then there are of couse a large number of picture discs turning up for sale for OUTRAGEOUS prices being peddled as "Japanese promo" picture discs, "UK promo" picture discs, and/or "test promo" picture discs with asking prices in the average range of $100-$250 (!!!)... (eg. Let There Be Rock, Fly On The Wall, Big Balls, Back In Black, Big Gun, Guns For Hire, The Razors Edge, 74 Jailbreak, The Rocker, Ballbreaker, Rock N Roll Train, Cyberspace, Who Made Who, ....and others!)... Some 10" some 12" picture discs. Not certain where or how such a price point has been determined for these apparently home-made picture discs, but they are certainly not "rare" and as "collectible" to ask for such a fee. Value of these discs $25-$40 USD+/- TOPS! So, a word of caution to unsuspecting collectors- these are not as RARE as they are made out to be, nor are they official or "promotional" releases as they are made out to be. Novelty collectibles that would be nice to have at $25-40 each at most.
Another similar situation are a large number of 7" and 10" vinyl records surfacing from Greece, which are apparently lathe cut (custom/homemade) vinyl releases. Sure- unique/cool picture sleeves/ artwork, which also would be nice as a novelty addition to ones collection, however the asking prices are a bit far fetched for home-made lathe cut's (typically an average range of $45-50USD!).
