(10/08/2019 - 10:26 PM) Green Bastard  -  Hey C-Rida good to see you. Long time no see. Hope you're doing well.

(13/07/2019 - 03:28 PM) Green Bastard  -  The Arcade has been checked, updated and reset......clean slate on all fronts here now.
(13/07/2019 - 03:27 PM) Green Bastard  -  Guilds, user groups & membership have all been updated and cleaned up.
(11/07/2019 - 04:22 PM) Green Bastard  -  Just so you know I may have purged your account but you still will be recognized for your contributions in the past. You can rejoin if you so wish I just wanted to clean up the site and do some housecleaning, it was nothing personal.
(09/07/2019 - 09:11 AM) Green Bastard  -  Hope all is well and if you do stop by say hi and take note of the changes. The target list will be changed soon. As I said, there has been no hurry and that is why it hasn't been done yet.
(07/07/2019 - 08:18 PM) Green Bastard  -  Hope you had a good weekend.
(05/07/2019 - 06:07 PM) Green Bastard  -  Last chance to hit the big targets before it all gets downsized. Happy belated Canada day canada.gif and 4th of July usflag.gif to anyone who were a part of the perspective demographics.
(22/06/2019 - 02:22 PM) Green Bastard  -  Target list will be downsized and anyone who is still a member but not playing will go into a HOF aka Hall Of Fame Category with your stats etc..
(22/06/2019 - 01:26 PM) Green Bastard  -  Okay so in case you did or didn't stop by, old members who haven't been here for over a year have been removed. I've done some maintenance and will do some more as I go along. If you were a member and have been removed and wish to return feel free to do so but if you do you must remain active to some extent. Thanks for understanding......more changes to come....
(19/06/2019 - 11:07 PM) Green Bastard  -  No hurry and a bit of a delay but this coming weekend the purge will take place.
(11/06/2019 - 11:04 PM) Green Bastard  -  This coming weekend I will be clearing out any old members who have not visited or participated in any capacity within the past 6 months and longer. Those who fall into that category are clearly no longer interested in the site so there is no point in continued membership or subject matter they may have posted. I will also be reducing the number of targets among other things. It's time to for a summer purge that's long overdue.
(08/06/2019 - 10:19 PM) Green Bastard  -  If you're cruising by and can read this, I'll be purging old memberships and doing a reset to the game. Details to follow....
(07/06/2019 - 10:46 AM) Green Bastard  -  There's going to be some changes coming to the site soon. Stay tuned.....
(07/06/2019 - 10:43 AM) Green Bastard  -  Hope your week was good.
(04/06/2019 - 10:17 AM) Green Bastard  -  El Taco Tuesday....Ole mexicano.gif

Australian musician and songwriter George Young, who notched a long and distinguished career as a key creative force in the influential rock band the Easybeats and as co-producer of the career-defining albums of his brothers’ hard rock group AC/DC, died early Monday at 70.

AC/DC acknowledged Young’s passing on their Twitter account, saying, “Without his help and guidance there would not have been an AC/DC.”

No location or cause of death were reported.

Young was born Nov. 6, 1946, in Glasgow, Scotland. After emigrating with his family to Sydney in 1963, Young made a splash as guitarist and principal songwriter for the Easybeats, a wildly popular Beatles-styled unit. They enjoyed several top-10 singles in their home country, including “She’s So Fine,” “Wedding Ring” and “Sorry.” They burst into international prominence with the smash “Friday On My Mind,” co-written with bandmate Harry Vanda, which reached No. 16 in the U.S. in early 1967.

Further stateside success eluded the band, which split in 1969. However, Young’s Easybeats material went on to be championed internationally by such acts as Australia’s Divinyls and INXS, David Bowie (who included “Friday On My Mind” on his 1973 covers album “Pin Ups”) and such punk-era American acts as the Plimsouls and the Three O’Clock.

During the early ‘70s, Vanda and Young became Australia’s most prominent producing duo, helming the first five studio albums by AC/DC, which featured Young’s siblings, lead guitarist Angus and rhythm guitarist Malcolm, behind lead vocalist Bon Scott. They produced the band’s 1975 debut set “High Voltage” and its four successors, which featured such early staples of the band’s repertoire as “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap,” “Whole Lotta Rosie” and “Let There Be Rock.” They also worked with contemporaneous Aussie hard rock acts like Rose Tattoo and the Angels.

In 1976, Young and Vanda returned to performing with the pseudonymous studio project Flash and the Pan. The overtly quirky duo reached the U.S. top 100 with their debut single “Hey, St. Peter,” while Grace Jones covered the pair’s “Walking in the Rain.”

Young retired from the music business in the late ‘90s, but returned to the studio in 2000 to produce AC/DC’s album “Stiff Upper Lip,” which reached No. 3 in Australia and No. 7 in the U.S.

Young was inducted twice into ARIA, Australia’s pop music hall of fame: with Vanda in its inaugural year of 1988 and as a member of the Easybeats in 2005. Young’s survivors include his brothers.
