AC/DC‘s Brian Johnson and Angus Young are featured in a BBC Radio 6 Music interview with Shaun Keaveny and Steve Lamacq discussing their new album, Rock Or Bust. You can now listen to part one below.
AC/DC‘s 16th studio album, “Rock Or Bust”, arrived in stores on Tuesday (December 2), following perhaps the toughest stretch of time in the band’s 40-year history since the death of singer Bon Scott in 1980. First, founding guitarist Malcolm Young was forced to retire from the group due to the onset of dementia, with the band recruiting nephew Stevie Young to play in his place. Then drummer Phil Rudd put his own future with the band in doubt, showing up late for the recording sessions, missing a video and photo shoot entirely, and finally being arrested on charges of murder-for-hire, threatening to kill and drug possession. Rudd showed up for a court hearing last week but his status with the band remains unclear.
