We are DIRTY DC.
Dirty DC was formed in 1998 and have played throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe. They quickly made a strong reputation amongst the serious die hard AC/DC fans. Dirty DC have always been renown for their heavy stage presence, authenticity and most important the delivery of the music AC/DC has become so famous for.
Dirty DC have seen some line up changes over the years but their attention to detail has always remained accurate to the band they portray. Now in early 2017 Dirty DC have just made a new and exciting line up change but still promise to deliver that accurate AC/DC experience the fans have grown to love over the years. Chris who has been playing Brian Johnson for many years has decided to stay as lead singer, Colin is still laying that perfect Cliff bass line and Steve Wilson has returned after a 12 month break as Malcolm on rhythm guitar, new to the line up playing drums is Connor who is a fantastic and highly talented drummer and finally current Dirty DC member James has moved from rhythm guitar to playing the Angus’ role on lead. James is a well established guitarist that has played in the USA with former Ozzy Osbourne bass player Rudy Sarzo, Whitesnake drummer Brian Tichy on the Randy Rhoads remembered tour. More importantly James has now returned to the role he is best suited to, James has played Angus for tribute bands before and is back to the role he knows and loves.
