Slash told Consequence of Sound about the AC/DC new, “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. 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.”
Axl Rose replaced Brian Johnson in AC/DC in 2016 when he was forced to bow out of the ‘Rock or Bust’ tour due to hearing issues. Cliff Williams announced that he would retire after the tour concluded, with many speculating that he did not want to continue the band without Johnson.
Eddie Trunk recently discussed the rumors surrounding a new AC/DC album and a possible tour announcement coming very soon at select stadiums. I think it’s inevitable that we’ll see an announcement that will basically confirm Axl Rose is no longer in the band, which makes me happy so he can focus on a new Guns N’ Roses album.
