AC/DC's Future Uncertain Says Angus Young: AC/DC News


AC/DC guitarist Angus Young is unsure what the future holds for the legendary band following their upcoming U.S. tour this fall which will feature Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose once again taking on lead vocals.

"At this point, I don't know," Young tells Rolling Stone via about the band's plans for the future. "We were committed to finishing the tour.

"Who knows what I'll feel after? When you sign on and say, 'I'm gonna do this and that,' it's always good to say at the end of it, 'I've done all I said I would do.'

"That was always the idea, especially when we were younger- Me, Malcolm, Bon. You had to show up and be on time. You'd be playing in a pub in the afternoon. Then late at night, you'd be playing a club. You got into that habit: 'If we don't play, we don't eat.'"

Young also explains how Axl Rose landed the gig with the band and discussed what it has been like to work with him, "He's been really good. He prepares himself, ready to go. We sit and chew the fat before we get on, work out what songs we want to do.

"It's gotta be fun for him, and for us. In the beginning, he was confined [with a foot injury] to that chair he borrowed from Dave Grohl. But as soon as he could, he was out and moving."

Angus goes on to explain how AC/DC hooked up with Rose, "Axl contacted a production guy who had done stuff for us. He said, 'I know these guys. They have a work ethic. They want to finish these dates.' He volunteered.

"He came to a rehearsal place we set up in Atlanta, and he'd done his homework. He had a few songs like 'Touch Too Much' [on 1979's Highway to Hell] - 'Can you play this one?' 'No, we never learned it.' We had never attempted to play it live." -
