That time I asked Doc Neeson if Angel City were inspired by AC/DC

By Steve Newton

Way the funk back in 1985 I did my one and only interview with Doc Neeson, frontman for Angel City, who were known as the Angels in their native Australia.

I thought Angel City were an awesome band. They put out an album called Face to Face that–with killer tracks like “Take a Long Line”, “Marseilles”, and “After the Rain”–was right up there with any album AC/DC ever released.

At one point in the interview I asked Neeson–who died from brain cancer in 2014–if his band were inspired much by the similarly riff-driven AC/DC, which also featured two guitar-playing brothers.
