How excited is Guns N Roses’ Slash about the prospects of a new AC/DC album? VERY…
The rumors started to fly last years when it was reported that the band was working on a new album, and also that “every track”, will feature the work of late rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young. This came from “a reliable source inside the AC/DC camp”. Malcolm had retired from the band in 2017 following the onset of dementia.
With Brian Johnson reportedly confirming that he would be singing on the new AC/DC album, if you’re a fan, you’re in heaven.
Slash said in an interview with Consequence of Sound recently that they are: “the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band ever.”
He went into detail: “Where do I start? AC/DC is bar none, with the exception of the [Rolling] Stones, the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band ever. The Stones will always come first for me and then AC/DC. There are no other bands that actually play that brand of really ’50s-influenced straight-up rock ‘n’ roll like AC/DC. I love them for that.
Adding: “I think Phil Rudd is one of the best drummers of all time. So anytime he was not in the band, I was always disappointed. But it’s great that Cliff [Williams is] going to be back because I remember being backstage with those guys at the end of the last tour and him saying that he was gone and that he was retired. So it’s great that everybody’s back, but it’s especially awesome that Brian [Johnson] is back.”
As of now, there is no definitive date for the band’s new release, but just like Slash, we’re waiting and hoping they don’t keep us waiting too long.
