The Band’s (Almost) Back Together

Colby Dell

It looks like the classic AC/DC lineup, aside from Malcolm Young, is getting back together to tour throughout 2019! Vocalist Brian Johnson has all but confirmed he’s back in the band. Drummer Phil Rudd was spotted at the studios where the band was recording. And now, there is evidence that longtime bassist Cliff Williams is back in the band too. Williams retired from the band at the end of their Rock or Bust touring, but now it seems he’s gone back on his retirement claims. A photo has surfaced of Johnson and Williams training in a Vancouver hotel, the area where the band is believed to be recording, leading to rumors that Williams is back in the fold.

At the time of his retirement, Williams said, “I’m ready to get off the road and do what I do in between tours.” Later he added “Losing Malcolm, the thing with Phil and now with Brian, it’s a changed animal. I feel in my gut it’s the right thing.”It’s rumored that Malcolm Young will appear on every track on the new album.
