Former AC/DC drummer Chris Slade spoke in an interview with Eonmusic and explained his thoughts about the rumors that ‘AC/DC recording new album right now in Vancouver’. Here’s the statement:
“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.
But Angus is now over 60, 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.”
On bassist Cliff Williams’ retirement and who would play bass on new album, he said:
“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 rumors. 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.”
