During an interview for Sonic Perspectives, AC/DC drummer Chris Slade answered questions about the upcoming AC/DC tour, and apparently, it will not happen any time in 2020.
The talented drummer of AC/DC, Chris Slade, formerly performed with the band between the years 1989 and 1994, drumming on their 1990 album ‘The Razors Edge‘ along with their first live album, ‘AC/DC Live.’ Later, Chris returned to the band in 2015 to replace Phil Rudd for the ‘Rock or Bust World Tour.’
During a recent interview for Sonic Perspectives, Chris was asked about the possible upcoming AC/DC tour and he stated:
“There are always going to be rumors with AC/DC. The only person who knows what will happen is Angus. It isn’t going to be this year. I can actually say that it will not happen in 2020.”
Furthermore, they asked Chris what he would think about rejoining the band if they invited him for the next year.
Here’s what Chris Adler stated about his possible return to AC/DC:
“I’m always ready to go. I love to travel, playing drums, and being on the road as not many people can say that. I hope I will be doing it for many more years.”
Chris played both with the band’s frontman Brian Johnson and Guns N’ Roses vocalist Axl Rose who replaced Brian after he was forced to leave AC/DC mid-tour because of severe hearing loss. During the conversation, Chris also compared working with the two iconic frontmen:
“I think Brian was doing the best he possibly could do. I could hear him so well, because I was using in-ear monitors. He didn’t sound anything like he thought he sounded. But, of course, he felt really bad that he couldn’t do what he considered his best. I was shocked when he was no longer around. I was even more shocked when they said they were trying out Axl Rose. I was, like, ‘What?’ because I heard all the stories.
Turns out he was the nicest guy, and when he started singing, I didn’t realize that he had that voice. He was phenomenal and could cover all the eras. He was never late for anything, as AC/DC goes by the second, not the minute when they start a show. Only once did they not start a show on time in 45 years, and I happened to be in the band. It was due to an issue with Angus’s guitar not being set up properly. As far as they were concerned, they have never been late on stage.”
