Wie bereits berichtet, wird das bei uns am Freitag erscheinende Album "Black Ice" von AC/DC in den USA ausschließlich über die Supermarktkette Wal-Mart vertrieben. Sänger Brian Johnson dazu: "Maybe I'm just being old-fashioned, but this iTunes, God bless 'em, it's going to kill music if they're not careful [...] It's a...monster, this thing, it just worries me. And I'm sure they're just doing it all in the interest of making as much...cash as possible. Let's put it this way, it's certainly not for the...love, let's get that out of the way, right away."
Zu den prompt aufkommenden Ausverkauf-Vorwürfen sagt er folgendes: "A lot of people were saying 'Ah man, you're going to the big Wal-Mart, you're selling out'. Wal-Mart were the only big store to stock all of our albums, every single one of them, and they've never deviated. And they sold AC/DC shirts and pajamas for kids, which we thought was really cool."
