Maynard Keenan of [mp3com-artist]Tool[/mp3com-artist] may make wine as well as song, but he’s by no means the only one. This past week the legendary hard-rock group [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]AC/DC[/lastfm] announced its own collection of song-inspired wines with names including “Back In Black Shiraz,” “You Shook Me All Night Long Moscato” and “Highway To Hell Cabernet Sauvignon.” What a sense of humor, right?
We’ll buy five of each, please.

Tired of the same old stuffy wines? Try some WhitesnakeZinfandel 2010 described by band leader David Coverdale as, “a bodacious cheeky little wine, filled to the brim with the spicy essence of sexy, slippery Snakeyness… I recommend it to complement any & all grown up friskiness & hot tub jollies…”
