‘It can look a bit strange – ‘Who’s this old guy in a school suit?’ ” says 61-year-old AC/DC guitarist Angus Young. “Somebody once commented, ‘From a distance, he looks quite youthful.’ It’s only when you get up close that you can see the weathered look.” That wear and tear are real for Young as he leads AC/DC through their toughest and possibly final world tour, which ends September 20th in Philadelphia.

Cliff Williams Will Retire After AC/DC’s Current Tour

Bassist Cliff Williams, the second-longest tenured member of AC/DC, will retire after the band’s troubled tour in support of Rock or Bust. In the end, it seems the loss of three bandmates in quick succession was more than Williams could take.

“It’s been what I’ve known for the past 40 years, but after this tour I’m backing off of touring and recording,” Cliff tells Gulfshore Life. “Losing Malcolm [Young], the thing with Phil [Rudd] and now with Brian [Johnson], it’s a changed animal. I feel in my gut it’s the right thing.”

News that original rhythm guitarist Young would retire following a dementia diagnosis arrived before AC/DC completed their current album; nephew Stevie Young took over. Rudd, who performed on Rock or Bust, was then replaced by ex-AC/DC drummer Chris Slade after a series of legal issues. Finally, Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose ended up serving as a sub for Johnson when the band’s long-time frontman was faced with catastrophic hearing loss.

That left Williams and stalwart guitarist Angus [Young], together since 1978’s Powerage. Over the years, Williams contributed to a stunning 11-album run of platinum or multi-platinum sales. Rock or Bust then peaked at No. 1 in 12 countries. “When you start out, you kind of hope for success,” Williams admits. “That’s what you are working for. But you never really know. It’s been surreal, really.”

“To me, Brian is the most powerful voice in rock and roll, Breuer told Rolling Stone. “He is also the funniest and most generous man I have ever known. I am still in awe of how he recorded the song and forever thankful.”

AC/DC was forced to postpone ten shows of their U.S. tour earlier this year after Johnson had “been advised by doctors to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss.”

AC/DC and Axl seen leaving studio, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Well folks, it looks as though the internet rumors over the past few weeks are true. If Axl is indeed singing for AC/DC this is going to be either the greatest thing to happen to rock and roll since AC/DC found Brian Johnson or the biggest flop in music history since AC/DC dropped Brian Johnson…Only time will tell but opinions welcome!


From TMZ:

No one on the planet is about to rock as hard as Axl Rose, and we have the first photos of him leaving rehearsing with what could be his new band … AC/DC!

There are reports the Guns N’ Roses frontman is going to fill in as lead singer for AC/DC, which is rumored to be opening for GNR on its upcoming tour. Axl was at a rehearsal studio in Atlanta with Angus Young and co. on Friday … maybe running through the classics, maybe finalizing a deal.

AC/DC’s Brian Johnson “Kicked to the Curb” according to, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

his friend Jim BreuerIf the story is true, it doesn’t look like the AC/DC camp are nice people…

From: The Music

Brian Johnson-4

Following on from reports that AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson would stop touring with the band due to hearing issues, a close friend of the vocalist has come out and said that he was “kicked to the curb”. reports that Johnson told comedian and friend Jim Breuer – whose new rock album the AC/DC vocalist sung on — the news after a show at McCurdy’s Comedy Theatre in Florida last week.

The band’s situation was then broadcast to listeners of Breuer’s podcast, The Metal In Me.

In the new podcast which was posted today, Breuer claims Johnson was dumped after telling Angus Young the full extent of his hearing issues.

“[Brian] said that he called and let [AC/DC and Young] know, ‘Hey this is what the doctor said, but let’s try to figure this out. I don’t think it’s as bad as he said it is.’ Literally the next day in the press, it was ‘Brian Johnson, tour cancelled, he’s losing his hearing.’” Breuer revealed.

“[Brian said] ‘I would really like to finish and do some shows. I think we can knock this out.’ Then all his luggage that he toured with showed up at his driveway. There’s been no calls. No, ‘How’s your hearing? How’s your health?’ Boom. ‘Here’s your [stuff], nice to know you.’”

Breuer said Johnson was “depressed” about the situation.

“I’ve never seen him down before. He was upset that he feels like he kind of got kicked to the curb,” Breuer said.

The 10 postponed Rock Or Bust US tour dates will be rescheduled later in the year, but it is unknown who will take over vocal duties, with a guest vocalist said to be likely at this stage.

AC/DC over? Brian Johnson Quits…!, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

AC/DC has taken a few hard hits lately but is this the last straw? If Brian’s hearing is in danger, I don’t blame him for retiring. I wonder how the fans will react to a guest singer to fulfill their postponed concert dates?

From the Sydney Journal:

With Brian Johnson reluctantly quitting as AC/DC’s singer the question has to be asked: is this the end for AC/DC, not only Australia’s biggest band but one of the world’s biggest?

AC/DC performs at Coachella !, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

By listening to the YouTube videos I can tell that the feel and sound of AC/DC has somewhat changed since Malcom is no longer involved due to Dementia. Stevie Young is a good guitar player but feel is feel. Also Chris Slade is back behind the drum kit again after a 20 year hiatus from AC/DC. Former AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd is having some legal issues and Chris Slade kills on the drums. Be sure and check out the You Tube video for the song “For Those about to Rock”. Angus Young and his school boy antics has bloody knee caps! At 60 years old, that’s dedication! ROCK ON!
