If true, I am glad to see the joke of Axl/DC is over.Well well... who'd expected that. Brian Johnson and Phil Rudd are probably back in the band. Sighted @ recording studio.
Yeah do feel sorry for him, really like his drumming on the Donnington DVD I have and the Razor's edge album. But it will be good to hear some more songs from Angus and Brian, unlikely to add much to the legacy, but always nice to have a slightly larger back catalogue to delve into when the mood takes me.Bit disappointed to see Chris Slade getting dropped (again), but the prospect of one more album is a tantalising one nonetheless.
I did not bother getting tickets for the Rock or Bust tour as I had already noticed the ageing on the Black Ice tour: sloppy playing from Angus, long breaks between songs... I would rather live with the memories of the times I saw them live (1996, 2001 and 2009).I though there was a noticeable aging of the band from the Black Ice tour to the Rock of Bust tour, particularly Brian. I don't think getting Brian and Phil back will help in that regard.
I saw them on Black Ice at Wembley, but I’d imagine that seeing them earlier at the NEC or a shed would be preferable. I’d consider seeing them again if Johno is back, even better with Phil too.I hadn't ever seen them before Black Ice but saw two gigs on that tour, one indoor and one outdoor, both really excellent gigs, seeing angus outdoors spinning on his back 30 feet in the air in the pissings of rain playing Let There Be Rock is an all time iconic gig memory. I can only imagine how good they must have been in their heyday if they were already in decline at that stage.
The Rock or Bust gig was by no means a bad gig, but it was obvious that they weren't as able for the physicality anymore, even minor things like that Brian wasn't swinging out of the bell for Hells Bells.
