AC/DC Member Dismisses Lineup Changes Criticism


(Classic Rock) AC/DC drummer Chris Slade has dismissed criticism of lineup changes, described the band as a jigsaw where every piece slots into place. In the brief video interview it seems he couldn't disagree more with predecessor Phil Rudd, who last month said he didn't want to rejoin Angus Young's band while Axl Rose was fronting them.

Slade says in the clip, "AC/DC is an institution for a start. Fans feel part of the family and it's a good feeling - a really good feeling." The Welshman explains how his brother gave him his first drumming lessons at the age of 10, and how his head-height bass drums became part of his stage set. He adds: "My role is to keep time and drive the band as much as I can. Playing with these guys is a jigsaw, and everything slots into place."

Meanwhile, in a separate video, AC/DC crew members Trace Foster and Greg Howard have discussed how working with the band is "both the easiest gig and the hardest gig" due to the relative lack of equipment used by guitarists Angus and Stevie Young. Watch both videos here.
