keefriff99If 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.Quote
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
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
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...

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