In an old interview with Classic Rock magazine, AC/DC’s Malcolm Young and Angus Young talked about former singer Dave Evans.
The interview was published recently by the magazine.
Angus Young [sounding slightly irritated]: How many bands has he f**kin’ got?
Malcolm Young: Every time we go back to Australia there’s something in the local paper about, ‘I made the band AC/DC into what they are’ [cackles dryly]. The day we f*ckin’ got rid of him, that’s the day the band started. How we got rid of him is quite a good story. We were playing at this pub in Melbourne.
Dave was almost like Gary Glitter in the gear he’d insist on wearing. It was ridiculous. All these hard-nosed, beer-drinking Aussies were after him, so we told him to go for a walk for ten minutes and we’d play a boogie number. But it went on for half an hour and the place was rockin’. After that, we realized that we didn’t need a singer.
Angus: No, we realized we didn’t need that singer! Actually, to call him a singer is being a bit polite.
Recently legendary rock band AC/DC posted on social media for the first time in almost 2 years. They have strongly hinted at new activity from the band. AC/DC posted a short 8-second video on Facebook celebrating the 40th anniversary of their highly successful album ‘Highway To Hell’. Whether it’s 40th-anniversary tour celebrating ‘Highway To Hell’ or a new album. Only time will tell. We may also have a new album coming soon. Only time will tell! AC/DC was in the midst of making — or at least planning — another album, with Rudd and Johnson both back in the lineup. Online reports have also indicated Angus Young will dedicate the new AC/DC album to his late brother.
