History about AC DC Music Rock Band "Back in Black". AC/DC - Back in Black is a 43-minute album by AC/DC hard rock band from Australia.

The Back in Black album was released on the 25th of July 1980, and it was the first AC/DC album, recorded with the absence of Bon Scott, who was the former escort singer. This happened because Scott died at his 33rd age on 19th February, and the album was devoted to him. The rock band considered disbanding after his bereavement, but eventually, they decided to continue, with the support from the parents of Scott. Subsequently, the band soon engaged Brian Johnson as their novel lyricist and lead singer. Robert John Mutt Lange, the producer of the album, who had formerly worked AC-DC hard rock band on a music album, “Highway to Hell”, was once more introduced to produce the AC/DC Back in Black. The album was mixed and recorded at the Nissan Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas, and the New York Electric Lady Studios.

This is for the reason that their recording equipment was at first held up by customs, and the island was trounced with tropical tempest that wreaked disaster on the electricity of the studio. Brian Johnson, the singer was having trouble in adjusting to the setting, and even referenced the awful climate on the opening lines of the music album.
