Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick About The Day AC/DC Dropped By His House

Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen says Angus and Malcolm Young, Bon Scott and Cliff Williams of AC/DC dropped by his house in 1979 and some interesting collaborations that were never officially released happened.

Talking to Noise11.com, the Cheap Trick guitarist and songwriter said, “Angus and Malcolm (Young) and Cliff (Williams) came to my house in 1979. I was the first night Bon Scott ever had Mexican food. He had Tacos and scotch. They were sweet guys. We loved them. There is a version of us doing ‘Johnny B. Goode’, with Robin (Zander) and Bon singing and Angus playing with us”.

That AC/DC/Cheap Trick collaboration of the Chuck Berry classic has been leaked online.

That night started a friendship that lasted decades. “Last time I saw them, right before Malcolm had died, I went to see them on the last show of the tour in Nashville,” Rick says. “The friend I flew down with and myself were the only ones they allowed backstage. I walked in, they said “hey Rick you still living in Rockford?” I said, “yeah I am”.”
