First I think we should establish the types of bands we are comparing while most people would both say they are both rock n’ roll bands I think they are both two different types of such. I would say AC/DC is totally hardcore rock and roll and that is their style. While Aerosmith has a bit of a mix, they have some hard rock, some ballads and some rock blues and a decent mix of all.
Now I think it’s important to note the difference in songs for the next item I am going to talk about, the atmosphere of the crowd. Now in a previous blog I talked about how Germanys and WAY more chilled at concerts then we are so for this I will be comparing my two Germany concerts. Now also I might add that it may be different because my “seats” were total opposites. For Aerosmith, I was sitting up in the balcony and for AC/DC I got my first floor experience. And boy let me tell you, I am totally going to pay the extra money to get floor ticket to my next Aerosmith concert. It was totally freakin’ awesome! I mean everyone was rocking and having a good time and these were the people who wanted to be there. These were the fans! I mean it was raining most of the night and we still rocked and had a good time. But compared to back home, well us Americans know how to rock, and well we should, we perfected Rock and Roll!
I feel I should also note, how grateful I am my boss picked me to go with him. It was a great time and it was a good time to bond with him. Before this I had felt we were sort of on the outs, he hadn’t been saying much to me, good or bad. I had started to worry he might not care about whether I stay or go or what I do with my life, but this time has proved just like all the other bosses and people I have in my life he is interested in where I am going and all I have to offer.
So as for which band is better, well I have to say as a whole I love those bad boys from Boston (they’re cuter) but when I want to get down and rock and roll….well I have an AC/DC playlist for that. =)
P.S. You guys are in for a treat I will be posting tomorrow about hitting my one year mark!
