SQUiERS, LLC and Gregg Ferguson of Current Motion, teamed up to produce a feature-length documentary entitled, AC/DC: Beyond the Thunder, a film about how this extraordinary band has influenced so many diverse, extraordinary fans. The duo found no shortage lining up actors, authors, athletes, blues greats, CEO's, cover bands, comedians, professors, fellow musicians and more to pay homage to these rock ’n' roll Hall of Famers, including: Slash, Johnny Winter, Anthrax, Drive By Truckers, Lemmy, Eddie Trunk, Dweezil Zappa, Guns ’N’ Roses, Big & Rich, Mastodon, Dee Snider, Trevor Hoffman, Jim Breuer, Clint Bowyer, Anvil, Dropkick Murphys, Jonathan Craft, Pat Boone, Living Colour, 2CELLOS and many, many more.
Covered in ADWEEK, Spin, Kerrang!, even a cover story in Classic Rock Magazine, featuring a DVD of the film’s trailer, AC/DC: Beyond the Thunder went viral across media platforms. Eventually, a special screening of the film was requested to be previewed in London during The Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards in front of The Who, The Stones, Black Sabbath, Aerosmith, ZZ Top, Led Zeppelin, Jeff Beck, Iggy Pop, among others, with Squiers accepting the album of the year award for AC/DC’s ‘Black Ice’ on behalf of the fans. The film's trailer was asked to go on tour with The Melbourne Arts Centre, Brisbane Gallery of Modern Art, and at the AC/DC endorsed Australia’s Family Jewels Exhibition touring Sydney, Melbourne, Glasgow and Seattle. All of a sudden, the industry began discussing distribution deals for a film that didn’t quite yet exist.
Kurt & Gregg decided to dust off these wonderful stories of extraordinary fans discussing their affinity for AC/DC and harness the energy into a vehicle that just might work…a podcast. After capturing over 50 interviews and with a newfound momentum to create all new episodes with partner Eric Kielb, AC/DC: Beyond the Thunder is back, serving up inspirational stories about the fans, for the fans, by the fans. For those about to listen, we salute you! And if you really think you know AC/DC, you can test your mettle daily here on Twitter's one & only AC/DC Trivia du jour.
