Last night, AC/DC brought their run with vocalist Axl Rose to a close. The tour wound it’s way across the world before finishing up in Philadelphia, PA at the Wells Fargo Center, with Rose replacing long-time vocalist Brian Johnson after he was forced to retire due to his deteriorating hearing.Original rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young was also forced to retire earlier this year as he is battling a debilitating case of dementia. While the tour pushed on, bassist Cliff Williams announced back in July that he would be retiring at the end of this tour, with it not feeling right to go on with so many original members dropping out due to health reasons. With that in mind, last night in Philadelphia was Williams’ final show with the band.Anyone who has seen AC/DC knows that it is the Angus Young show, with his schoolboy outfit, energetic stage presence, and wild guitar playing. It proved a truly touching moment when Young walked Williams out to the front and center of the stage as the band rang out the final notes of “For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)” in Philadelphia.See below for a HD video of “For Those About To Rock”, and watch as Angus Young salutes Cliff Williams during his final moments as a member of AC/DC:Video courtesy of YouTube user Jim Powers.

Honey has been used for a variety of culinary and medicinal applications for centuries, and it’s still in high demand today. Beekeeping is becoming increasingly popular in cities, suburbs and across rural landscapes throughout the country. Using both traditional and modern tools, today’s beekeepers are providing friends and neighbors with honey while supporting strong pollinator populations.
