On August 3rd, 1979 – The iconic AC/DC released their breakthrough studio album in the United States: Highway To Hell. Tragically, this would be the last studio album that the legendary (and late) Bon Scott would sing on. Robert John “Mutt” Lange was the producer for Highway To Hell. My favorite song on this album is: Touch Too Much. Oh, man, that song revs me up, like no tomorrow!
