S3E11 - Behind Beyond The Thunder #3
Go “behind” Beyond the Thunder with this special bonus episode which wraps up Season 3 by answering listener letters while unearthing never-before-heard interviews with NASCAR driver and AC/DC super-fan Clint Bowyer, who joins the show to share his insights on the band's impact on the racing community, while Canadian heavy metal legends, Anvil, reminisce about meeting the original AC/DC lineup backstage, including a semi-sober Bon Scott. But that's not all – Australian children's entertainers, The Wiggles, also make a surprise appearance to discuss their unexpected love for the band, including an exclusive live performance of an AC/DC beloved classic from their big red car.
S3E10 - Jim Parsons
Although he does have a degree in Biochemistry from Manchester, this is not the guy from The Big Bang Theory…it’s the other Jim Parsons who is certainly a much, much bigger AC/DC fan, and plays a much more important role in the band’s history than Sheldon Cooper could ever fathom—including bringing to life the fan favorite AC/DC TV performance on VH1’s Uncut! In this season finale, we dive into Jim's 30+ years as a producer & director who's gone shootin' with everyone from Metallica, McCartney, U2, Foo Fighters, Chili Peppers & Rolling Stones—not to mention his Grammy Award winning Led Zeppelin concert film and the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert featuring Brian Johnson.
S3E9 - Simon Wright (Part 2)
After Simon Wright's career with AC/DC 'blows up', he goes on to sit behind the drum kit for even more rock 'n' roll heroes, including Ronnie James Dio, Rhino Bucket, Michael Schenker & UFO, John Norum of Europe, Geoff Tate's Queensryche and Metal Gods with Tim "Ripper" Owens, the ultimate ode to Dio & Judas Priest. Through divorce, death, and decades of drumming, Simon's musical journey continues.
S3E8 - Simon Wright (Part 1)
In this very special two-part, skin-bashing, foundation-shaking edition of 'AC/DC Beyond the Thunder', we sit down with veteran stickman, Simon Wright, the drummer for AC/DC who kept the band’s heartbeat alive throughout the '80s. After being plucked from obscurity and into the eye of the storm, Part 1 allows listeners to be a fly on the wall, from Simon's audition, to meeting Stephen King, and playing Rock in Rio...before things blow up when he decides to leave AC/DC for Dio.
S3E7 - Hayseed Dixie
This finger-licking episode takes us to Nashville, TN to visit the four-piece bluegrass phenomenon—Hayseed Dixie, capturing exclusive moonshine-inspired renditions of both 'T.N.T.' and 'Let’s Get It Up' performed by the classic band lineup. The Southern boys also discuss how AC/DC became fans of the band, listening to Hayseed Dixie before shows and even hiring them to play an AC/DC end of tour wrap party.
