31 Aug Recording “Back in Black” (the album): Interview(s) with Tony Platt
I’m seeing links disappear therefore for now, I’m posting “raw”, unfiltered and unprocessed (by me) data on the subject.
I’m posting the whole text here, then will provide the link(s) but not sure they exist all (i.e., clickbale).
I feel all of this information – already widely available on the net – has to be saved and stored for us.

It’s a whole lotta reading, but I think you may be pleased.
Let’s start with a video interview to make it more pleasant (video courtesy of member Kirk2000: thanks Kirk!):
