In heavy metal news today, the latest report of AC/DC working on a new album has received a photographic proof, and a major plot twist.
The initial report claimed that the band was at the Warehouse Studios in Vancouver – the same location where their previous three records were made – with Axl Rose and classic drummer Phil Rudd.
The latest photo shows that Rudd is indeed in Vancouver at the deck outside the studio. However, he’s hanging out with none other than Brian Johnson.
Canadian journalist Steve Newton, who shared the initial report, wrote on The Georgia Straight:
“Vancouver resident (and hardcore AC/DC fan) Crystal Lambert has an apartment located near Warehouse Studios in Gastown, and she and longtime friend Glenn Slavens have been keeping an eye on the studio’s outside deck, where various band members seemingly retreat to get some air, use the barbie, and drink coffee (or perhaps Jack Daniels) from white mugs.
“As you can see from the above photo, taken by Glenn two days ago, Rudd appears to be sharing a laugh with none other than Brian Fucking Johnson! He’s the longtime AC/DC singer who was replaced on tour by Axl Rose when hearing problems took him down after the release of 2014’s Rock or Bust album.”
