Speaking in a recent interview with Eonmusic, former legendary AC/DC drummer Chris Slade has revealed his thoughts on upcoming AC/DC album.
Interviewer said “who would you say is playing bass on these sessions?”, and Chris responded:
“I’m not sure about that. But Stevie [Young] and Angus both play bass. Would Cliff come out of retirement? It depends on if he’s bored or not, because all he will want to do these days is go fishing with his son, who is a professional fisherman.
So, I don’t know. It’s possible, of course, but there again, it’s all rumours. But Angus is very big, family-orientated, a la Stevie, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a nephew or a cousin or something who plays bass So, that’s just a thought.”
As you know, AC/DC’s legendary bassist Cliff Williams was retired in 2016. We are expecting that he will not return to the band. We’ll see what happens.
Chris Slade also mentioned about Axl Rose rumors for new album, he said:
“Yes. If it works, good luck. It’s great. And why not? There’s all sorts of rumours; Axl’s going to be doing a track, Brian’s going to be doing a track; there’s so many variables here. And I’ve learned with AC/DC also, not to believe the rumours, because even fans fake things; things just get faked.
But Angus is now over sixty, I think, so he’s still got a few years to go, if you go by me and Brian. That’s all he does; he relaxes by painting, and he smokes fags, and that’s about it, so the rest of the time, he’s playing guitar.”
