AC/DC -- Well, Hells Bells!! Our Bassist Is Bailing Too
So, they are almost their own tribute band.
Can AC/DC just break up all ready? This is getting undignified.
They can hire Wing
66-years-old. The guy deserves to retire.
Cliff Williams confirms his retirement
Wow!! Love Cliff .....RESPECT!!
Screw that...I'll take Cliff's gig if he doesn't want it!
I stared a thread about this a couple of moths ago.
Some older folk would argue that has been the case ever since Bon Scott died. But IMHO as a huge AC/DC fan, it has really become true in this decade as age has caught up with them. Malcolm's dementia, Brian's hearing problems, et al. Good on Cliff for having the self-awareness to know when to walk away on his terms.
When is the audition? Sounds like a plum gig to me. And if Axl hangs around, more Bon Scott songs! Gotta call my agent. LOL
Good on Cliff. I wish all these old has-been bands would retire gracefully instead continuing to milk it 20,30,40 years past their prime with most of the original members out of the band.
I wonder if Angus will hire Nikki Sixx
I sense a "super-group" in the near future. They'll probably get Jason Bonham and Michael Anthony and call themselves Axl Grease.
Congrats to Cliff on his retirement and not becoming a rock n roll statistic! I've always loved the non-flashy bassists who can hold it together solidly.
Has-been bands don't have their most recent album go gold. Nor are they under any obligation to retire just because you think they should.
I would too, but I don't claim to be dignified.
Wing used to offer personalized birthday phone calls/voice mails for dirt cheap on her website, like $20. My friend and I almost had her sing Back In Black one night.
Oh yeah, back to the topic, Cliff is leaving? Meh. They should have called it a day a couple band members ago.
Dirty deeds done dirt cheap?
If Malcolm had told them that they should have packed it in when his dementia got too much for him to continue, there's no doubt in my mind that they would have. Instead, he told them to get Stevie and continue on. Mal always called the shots in AC/DC, and his final shot was to tell Angus to carry on. And why not? They sounded great and still put on an awesome show.
