So many bad feelings and sad decisions in there...Angus should
just end AC/DC and go on touring as, let´s say, "Angus Young´s
Rock´n´Roll Train".
If Phil, Cliff and Brian were still out of the picture, then I'd agree with you, but if the rumors are true, the "classic" Back in Black lineup (minus Malcolm, obviously) have patched things up enough to at least have recorded an album using Mal's old riffs, and may all tour together.

If they can pull that off, then it's worth one last go-around.

If anything about this being the last time out has been said I haven't seen it but it sure seems to fit: the amount of time between LPs has been getting ridiculous...

THE RAZORS EDGE 1990
BALLBREAKER 1995
STIFF UPPER LIP 2000
BLACK ICE 2008
ROCK OR BUST 2014

This bit from the wikipedee page is hilarious, really. ROCK OR BUST was the group's first album without founding member and rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, who had retired from the band in 2014 due to health concerns, although he co-wrote every track on the album. Bass guitarist Cliff Williams has also retired since Rock or Bust was released, while drummer Phil Rudd was unable to participate in the supporting tour after being sentenced to house arrest, and vocalist Brian Johnson was forced to exit the band after the fifth leg of the album's supporting tour as a result of hearing loss. Further on about the tour, no mention of Johnson's departure and Axl taking over at all.


Although, when compared to the Stones...

STEEL WHEELS 1989.................THE RAZORS EDGE 1990
VOODOO LOUNGE 1994............BALLBREAKER 1995
BRIDGES TO BABYLON 1997......STIFF UPPER LIP 2000
A BIGGER BANG 2005................BLACK ICE 2008
BLUE AND LONESOME 2016.......ROCK OR BUST 2014


ac/dc though everything is an event. they rarely release hits packages or live albums and when they do they make it an event itself. the stones stopped making live albums a real event imo after stripped. from what I've heard starting with the razors edge there was some agreement to pretty much tour an album about 2 years and then release something that wasn't a studio albums. that's why we have
THE RAZORS EDGE 1990
AC/DC live-1992
BALLBREAKER 1995
Bonfire-1997
STIFF UPPER LIP 2000
Family Jewels- 2005
Plug me in- 2007

BLACK ICE 2008
Backtracks- 2009
Iron Man 2 soundtrack -2010
Live at river plate- 2012

ROCK OR BUST 2014


the things I bolded were things promoted a lot by the band as new product. there were live videos after ballbreaker and stiff upper lip but the band didn't seem to go hard pushing them

Huh, I never even realized that the Stones' and AC/DC's releases over the past 30 years lined up so perfectly. Good catch!

Seems like the guys in AC/DC just decided to slow down and enjoy life a little after a hectic schedule in the '70s and '80s...nothing wrong with that, but as someone relatively younger who didn't get into them until the mid '90s, it sucks that I haven't had more opportunities to see them live.

Yeah, that paragraph makes the band sound like a walking MASH unit.

yup they simply toured an album longer, take a year or so off. release some project that's not a new studio album and then start ramping up again for the next 2 year your and studio album. my guess is something is really happening then they tour will end in 2022 and that's it for AC/DC

Some truth in that indeed. However, No Security is the only live album they have toured, so that one deserves a mention as well.

you got me. I forgot about that one altogether and it was really promoted by the band a lot. since then after the 40 live licks, which was more like a companion to 4 flicks, the band just drops live albums left and right as they are usually vault releases and there isn't a big push

Sammy Hagar and the Circle’s newest Lockdown Sessions video is a cover of the 1977 AC/DC classic “Whole Lotta Rosie.”

the only thing we need (musically) more than a new Stones single (and album) right now is a new AC/DC single (and album)...

"let there be rock!"
