Rock 'N' Roll Train

The School Of Rock reopens after an eight-year recess with a textbook lesson in bludgeoning, beer-swilling brilliance. In any other context, a 60-year-old Geordie in a frayed sleeveless shirt leering over “a schoolgirl with a fantasy” (not to mention his wizened mate in the prefect’s uniform) would be the subject of a tabloid scare campaign. But this is just AC/DC doing what they do best. If you expected – or wanted – anything else, you’re a fool.
