"AC/DC fans followed hennemusic for updates throughout the year as they anxiously await news of the band's future, especially following reports of recording sessions in Vancouver this summer," says Publisher Bruce Henne, "while vintage Pink Floyd enjoyed a resurgence thanks to a number of reissues, an online video series and a return to live performances by drummer Nick Mason."
