Cary denizen Kurt Squiers is a ginormous AC/DC fan, which isn't surprising. He's spent the last two years and a huge sum of money working on a documentary about the band, "Beyond the Thunder," inspired by his longtime AC/DC obsession. What is surprising is that his Maine-based partner in this filmic endeavor, Gregg Ferguson, actually isn't a huge AC/DC fan.
"No, Gregg isn't a big fan," Squiers says. "But the funny thing is the first big concert I ever saw was AC/DC in Worcester, Mass., in 1985 -- and he was at the same show! He was from New Hampshire, I was from Maine. And from the way he describes it, we were probably even sitting in the same section. Decades later, here we are. We did not know this until we were filming. Finding that out was a very zen moment."
