Cool. I'm also glad to see a good AC/DC table. Everyone goes crazy over the Kiss table....and while I can appreciate the table itself, I was never a huge Kiss fan. They have a few good songs, but more than anything they seem to be a merchendise machine. AC/DC is a band I am willing to support a bit more.

With that said I want an Iron Maiden pinball table. If they were to make that pin, I'd prolly pay full price and find a way to pre-order it. HUGE Maiden fan. And from their album artwork and of course the Eddie mascot, they could do SO MUCH with a Maiden table. Sorry.....just had to get that out of my system.

With all due respect, I have never heard of a Big Buck Hunter making $800 a week. I have worked for operators for over 10 years in Virginia! Still enjoying the interview however. Very cool.

Great job guys! I can't believe you pulled that type of interview off as well as you did: Seamlessly.

Thanks. It was challenging. As some of you may know Steve has a hearing disorder and couldn't hear us so we had to email questions to him vs. our normal back-and-forth interview style. Steve did a great job answering them in the order we presented them and then UK dubbed our questions in editing. It worked out well for all of us and UK worked his magic to put it all together. Glad you enjoyed it!

Enjoyed the interview. Great work guys!

It was nice to hear Steve talk about working on Star Trek: The Next Generation - one of my favorite pinballs.

What a great interview. Steve Ritchie is always a pleasure to listen to. I remember seeing him speak about 2 or 3 years ago at California Extreme and enjoyed him talking about the inspiration for 1985's High Speed. Which by the way was a question that I asked. Great memories.
I can't wait to play the new AC/DC machine and hope to see it at this year's California Extreme or at the Pinball Hall of Fame.
