Slash welcomes back Brian Johnson, Phil Rudd, and bassist Cliff Williams to AC/DC.
Speaking to Consequence Of Sound, the GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist said:
“Where do I start? AC/DC is bar none, with the exception of [THE ROLLING] STONES, the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band ever. THE STONES will always come first for me and then AC/DC. There are no other bands that actually play that brand of really ’50s-influenced straight-up rock ‘n’ roll like AC/DC. I love them for that.
He further added:
I think Phil Rudd is one of the best drummers of all time. So anytime he was not in the band, I was always disappointed. But it’s great that Cliff is going to be back because I remember being backstage with those guys at the end of the last tour and him saying that he was gone and that he was retired. So it’s great that everybody’s back, but it’s especially awesome that Brian is back.”
