AC/DC/Writing songs

Hi Bill: I was wondering if ACDC ever reads fans songs written specifically in mind for them to sing. I have written lyrics to about 8 songs and wanted to ask if they ever have done this. One in particular is for a friend of mine who battled cancer and is called "Skin the Beast"..would be awesome if they took a look...and be a dream come true for me..thanks for looking at my question.
Thanks, Donna

Hi Donna,

Thank you for your question. I do not believe that AC/DC have a specific outlet where songwriters can show them their work, however. Considering the vast amount of fan-mail and large variety of other inquiries that can get presented to the band (normally through the avenue of their management), it would be an enormous task to triage the large number of contacts the band would receive.

Best Regards, Bill
