Man Plays AC/DC on Flaming Bagpipes

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

For a funeral or Thanksgiving Day parade, bagpipes are great. But for a rock song? An Australian man will leave you thinking differently after watching his performance of AC/DC‘s ‘Thunderstruck’ on the instrument. Making the whole thing even more awesome: The bagpipes shoot fire. 

Cam McAzie, a Perth native who has been playing for more than 15 years, is better known as the Badpiper. He’s released three albums (at least according to his Facebook page), including the recent ‘Burn,’ which includes his version of ‘Thunderstruck.’

The video has picked up quite a bit of attention — which seemingly confounds McAzie. “This viral video has spread so far and so wide,” he wrote on Facebook. “I’m not a very good tech guy, so if anyone has any info on how far this has reached please let me know. And a big welcome to all the new fans, welcome aboard!!”

But it didn’t take long for him to embrace his new fame. “I WANT LETTERMAN!!!!!!!” he posted a mere 30 minutes later.
