Former AC/DC member Dave Evans has asked Angus Young to record a new album in order to keep the band going.
Recently the band has experienced problems as Brian Johnson was replaced by Axl Rose for live dates while Cliff Williams retired shortly afterwards. To make matter worse, drummer Phil Rudd was dismissed after he was charged with possessor of drugs. As health related events saw Malcolm Young forced to take a break, Evans has asked the band to keep the band going as they will eventually need to get back to studio.
During an interview with the Australian Rock Show, he said, “I like the fact that the brand is still out there because that’s all it is these days – it’s just a brand.”
“Angus is the only original member left and a lot of the others are all gone, too. If he wants to keep the AC/DC brand going, which he can do, they need to settle on a new singer – whether it’s going be Axl or not. And they need to record a new album to make it legitimate.”
“They’ve had many lineups along the way. They were on their third bass player and third drummer by the time I left the band.
“There has been four singers now, including Axl, so it’s been a revolving situation since the very original first lineup with myself and the other boys.
“If they wanna keep the brand going again with a new lineup, with Angus, they need to record a new album and see how the fans take that.”
