S2E4 - Scott Ian

9/29/2020
From the tattoo of Malcolm on his left arm, and Angus on his right, Scott Ian would have his own 'AC/DC Beyond the Thunder' episode...if he played it right! The founder of Anthrax, and one of the BIG 4, kicks off Episode 4, discussing his love for the Young brothers, and maybe even saving some real estate on his body for a third AC/DC member!

S2E3 - Bob Defrin

8/31/2020
Ever wonder who's responsible for that iconic AC/DC logo? If you were one of those AC/DC fans who were first arrested by the sight of Angus Young impaled by his own Gibson SG, or being violently electrocuted, or sprouting devil horns and tail—even before hearing a single chord—then have we got an episode for you. Meet Bob Defrin, AC/DC's veteran art director, responsible for helping one of the greatest bands of all time become one of the greatest brands of all time. Just sit back and relax...

S2E2 - Lee Robinson

8/1/2020
It turns out that AC/DC’s search for a new singer, back when Brian Johnson's hearing loss forced him to leave the Rock or Bust tour, did not begin and end with Axl Rose, who was eventually (spoiler alert) announced as Brian's replacement. Out of the four known auditions for this gig of a lifetime, Lee Robinson, frontman of the AC/DC tribute band Thunderstruck out of Raleigh, North Carolina, shares his incredible experience how, for one day, he was able to stand in the shoes of Brian & Bon to...

S2E1 - Lemmy

7/1/2020
Are we kicking off Season 2 with a posthumous interview from Lemmy? You bet your Ace of Spaces we are! Does our favorite mutton-chopped Motörhead treat us to some juicy AC/DC stories? Well, not exactly. But it’s freakin' Lemmy! Who cares? Listen to how this beloved rock 'n' roll icon admits to likening his own band to AC/DC as “birds of a feather”, tries to impress a date by bringing her backstage (witnessing Bon Scott collapse), contemplate his favorite AC/DC track (including the one he...

Behind Beyond The Thunder - Part 1

6/10/2020
Often told by many, including the people being interviewed, that their own "behind the scenes" adventures were just as interesting as their main objective (to find out why AC/DC matters), in this 1st installment and bridge between seasons, engineer Eric Kielb sits down with co-creators, Gregg Ferguson & Kurt Squiers to discuss the origins of 'Beyond the Thunder', how the duo were shot down in flames, the unlikely metamorphosis into a podcast, and what to expect for Season Two. Maybe it is...

Episode 10 - Phil Carson

1/29/2020
Don't know who Phil is? Let's just say without him, there'd likely be no AC/DC. This former Senior VP of Atlantic Records opens up the AC/DC time capsule for our listeners, indulging us with stories told first hand by someone who was not only there in the flesh, (and in the trenches) with this undisputed Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band, but also who can take credit for saving and catapulting AC/DC's monumental career. And oh yeah, how Bon Scott broke his wife's tooth...

Episode 9 - Slash

12/27/2019
Saul Hudson would hear AC/DC for the first time, and earn his nickname, Slash...on the same day. Fate? We think so. Go behind the scenes of when this Rock & Roll Hall of Fame guitarist opened up for AC/DC, why Keith Richards loves them so much, and how satisfying it is to give the Grammy's & Rolling Stone magazine the middle finger. Welcome to the Thunder, baby.

Episode 5 - Chris Slade

7/30/2019
So just how was our next guest influenced by AC/DC? Does it count if he was actually IN the band? We thought so!

While in captivity for 11 days, you'll be absolutely shocked how AC/DC provide an anthem for Mike to soldier on.

Episode 2 - Dee Snider

5/9/2019
