ACDC’s legendary guitarist Angus Young visited The Howard Stern Show this morning with frontman Brian Johnson. The duo are on the promo road for their new album, ‘Rock or Bust’, which hits stores on December 2nd.
It’s been a tumultuous time for ACDC. Founding member and rock solid rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young has retired from the band, as he now lives with dementia. On the heels of that sad news came drummer Phil Rudd’s recent arrest for marijuana and methamphetamines, threatening to kill, along with a dropped charge of soliciting a hitman. Rudd’s status in ACDC and their upcoming world is tentative to say the least.
Angus and Brian were talkative when they sat down with the King of All Media, discussing about ACDC’s late frontman, Bon Scott, why they make music, the state of rock today, and much more. Check out highlights below.
