During a recent appearance on the “Old Fashioned Rock N’ Roll Radio Show,” AC/DC singer Brian Johnson talked about his current relationship with the rest of the band.
AC/DC is rumored to have reunited with Johnson, bassist Cliff Williams and drummer Phil Rudd for a new album.
“Actually, it’s the craziest thing. Angus‘ wife, Ella — she loves to cook. And that’s what we were talking about — how to make scones. It had nothing to do with music,” Johnson said.
“And Angus is safe and well. And so is Phil [Rudd, drums]. Cliff [Williams, bass] is up in the mountains of North Carolina… Cliff’s a-huntin’ and shootin’ and fishin’ man. And I don’t know where Stevie [Young, AC/DC rhythm guitarist] is. He’s somewhere.”
He also discussed the ongoing pandemic: “I think it’s made us realize how much we took for granted. When you’ve gone to a gig or something and you hear somebody hit that guitar, like your good self, and just knock the snot out of it and you just get that shiver down your back. Now when you hear a band start up, hearing the live music – I think that’s a big miss for everybody.”
TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider said in a recent interview on 95.5 KLOS radio station that AC/DC will likely embark on stadium tour along with new album release.
Asked when fans will finally get a chance to hear new music from AC/DC, Snider said: “I think that everybody — and you’ve seen this with the movie industry; you’ve seen this across the board — not everybody, but a lot of people have said, ‘Let’s just put a hold on everything until everything until things settle down a little.’
He continued: “I think they’re planning on a tour to go with the new record, and I know they’re spoiled old brats like me — they don’t wanna do it online or something. They know they’re gonna be playing stadiums on this tour.”
In July, Snider again spoke about AC/DC‘s much-anticipated new album, saying it already “has been recorded” but had to be “delayed” because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I haven’t heard anything, but… it’s AC/DC, man. You can’t go wrong! Four chords and a dream, baby! That’s it!,” Snider told ABC Audio.
He also addressed his previous comments that the album will be dedicated to band’s late rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young: “This is gonna be a miracle of technology. What will be achieved, the reuniting of the band that we know for one more album, is gonna to be uplifting and heartbreaking at the same time. Because nothing goes on forever. But this is the ultimate ‘one more time.’”
