Some Information about me- the webmaster, for those who really need to know...

Here I am at the Hard Rock Cafe in NY City finishing a beer before getting to ask AC/DC a quesion live on the air. Phil, Angus, Malcolm Brian, and Cliff await in the background! What a night!

Thank you for visiting my site. I maintain the AC/DC "HIGHWAY TO HELL" Fan and collector's site which has become one of the most popular AC/DC sites on the net over the past several years. I try to update the AC/DC news section as often as possible, bringing you the very latest in AC/DC and AC/DC-related news. Other areas of the site are being updated often.
