In a recent interview with Eon Music, former AC/DC drummer Chris Slade has remembered the time that he got call from AC/DC to re-join band in 2015.
He has revealed the story of how he re-join AC/DC in 2015. Here’s the story:
“I was not surprised, I was shocked to get that call, especially after the way it ended before. I was very pleased to get it. I was actually working in Switzerland that night with Timeline, and I got the call from the manager. It went on for about twenty minutes. In fact, I was late for the gig because of it.
At the end of it, after a fifteen minute conversation, I said; “Does this come from all the guys form the band”, and he said; “Oh yes, definitely”, and it was. So it was amazing, especially with my age; I was late-sixties at that time – so was Brian, by the way!
But it was fantastic, and the tour was great. It always has been a great honour to be in that band.”
Interviewer said “what was it like with Axl Rose fronting AC/DC, and the shake-up of set list that came with it?” and Chris responded:
“That all came from him. I was standing right next to him when he said to Angus; “Do you think we could do ‘Live Wire’ and ‘Riff Raff?” And Angus said; “Well, we don’t know them right now, but we’ll learn them”.
I love playing ‘Riff Raff’, and I’ve never stopped playing it, even when I was working with like tribute bands or something. It’s one of my favourites actually, to play.”
