The Daily Telegraph reported that AC/DC's Angus Young was named Australia's "greatest guitar player in history" by Australian Guitar magazine. Tommy Emmanuel, Cold Chisel's Ian Moss, Chris Cheney from The Living End, and Rick Brewster from The Angels are also among the top five.

Brother Malcolm told Classic Rock that work on the new record is going well but it will likely not be heard until 2013.

"It'll be a little while — a year or two anyway," said Malcom. "I've been doing some jamming on some song ideas but I do that all the time, as do the rest of the band. We are still working. But we had a long rest between "Stiff Upper Lip" and "Black Ice," so I think we need a couple of years to recuperate and work on it a bit more."
