A FAMOUS QUOTE BY PHIL RUDD

"My most memorial moment while being a rock star WAS KNOCKING THE STONES INTO THE WEEDS @ Sarsfest in Toronto"

Might be true than Smile I went to see them in Horsens xD

I won the Grand prize to go to New York City then to Penn. to see them I have to say out of all the concerts I've gone to the past 25 years this was off the charts. Angus Young jams like no other. Thanks guys for the kick ass show.
