Did that sound screamy enough? Be honest.

Okay, lemme try it again. Uhh-aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!!!!!

Yep, that’s the one. I’ll stick with that one.

Bootleg City is back! Or rather, you’re back in Bootleg City. (You sure did skip town in a hurry last year. Now, where’s that $5,000 you still owe us?) So open yer yaps, boyos, and prepare to take in AC/DC’s “Live in Concert” bootleg, taken from an August 21, 1978, performance at Boston’s Paradise Theatre that was broadcast on WBCN. At one point the disc jockey refers to the Australian band’s lead singer as “Bon Tyler” instead of Bon Scott. Was he daydreaming about Boston’s own hard-rock pride and joy, Aerosmith? I know for a fact he wasn’t daydreaming about Steven Tyler’s movie-star daughter Liv — in the summer of ’78 she was only 13 months old.
