Brian Johnson and Phil Rudd back in AC/DC?




https://www.nme.com/news/music/ac-dc...-album-2364364

Vancouver is where AC/DC record their albums. I met Brian and Cliff when they were here recording the last one. I wonder if this means Cliff Williams is back too.

Good to know Phil has his shit together again. Wonder if they'll be able to coax Cliff back.

And Brian? Did he recover from his ear samage, or was it not as extensive as thought?

I thought that they said(awhile back) that Brian Johnson shouldn't perform concerts but performing in a studio setting shouldn't be a problem.

Honestly, I thought Axl did a pretty good job during his short stint with the band and frankly, wouldn't mind to see him continue. Johnson's voice is shot - and has been for years.

Agreed. The show I attended on the last tour was one that Axl fronted and he was amazing. He just has the vibe of Bon Scott that Brian doesn't have. To hear "Live Wire" played for the first time in 34 years was a treat.

He could always go the Paul Gilbert route and wear full headphones while performing. I think the audience would understand.

Plus, you know, Brian Johnson signature model headphones available exclusively at acdc.com.

What about the lead singer from Krokus(he is or was their lead drummer)?

He sounds more like Bon Scott than Bon Scott ever did and I think AC/DC used too open for Krokus(way back in the mid-1970s).

I just ordered Krokus Greatest Hits from Amazon(Stayed Awake All Night-one of the greatest metal songs of all-time).

Re: Brian Johnson and Phil Rudd back in AC/DC?

Possible interesting development:

Texas-based publication JAM Magazine has cited a "reliable source inside the AC/DC camp" as letting them know that Angus Young is working on a new AC/DC album that will be dedicated to his brother, the late Malcolm Young.

According to the site, the new recordings will include "Malcolm playing rhythm guitar on all tracks!"

A posting on the JAM Magazine Facebook page reads: "Turns out, five years prior to the 'Black Ice' LP, AC/DC's 15th studio release, Angus and Malcolm Young lived to together where they literally wrote hundreds of songs, many were recorded and have been stashed away until now. Angus has decided to selected the best tracks from those recordings that Malcolm played on and is now back in the studio recording and mixing them with fellow bandmates Phil Rudd, Cliff Williams and, yes, Brian Johnson on vocals."

Would be a good way for the band to end their career.

Brian Johnson tells metal band that he’s back in AC/DC: Report
The singer apparently told the band Terrorizer he's "sick of denying" the rumors
