AC/DC Bassist Cliff Williams Is Retiring After Current Tour

first_imgAC/DC fans have had a rough go of things as of late, as the band has lost a handful of their core members over the last few years.First it was founding member, rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, who was unfortunately diagnosed with dementia back in 2014. Then it was drummer Phil Rudd, who was arrested in New Zealand over murder threats. Most recently it was lead singer Brian Johnson, who’s hearing issues had progressed to the point where touring was impossible for him. Now, it seems that bassist Cliff Williams is the next to leave the group. Unlike the afore mentioned trio of musicians, Williams came to the decision on his own free will, saying, “It’s been what I’ve known for the past 40 years, but after this tour I’m backing off of touring and recording… Losing Malcolm [Young], the thing with Phil [Rudd] and now with Brian [Johnson], it’s a changed animal. I feel in my gut it’s the right thing.”The quote comes in an interview with Gulfshore Life, where Williams says, “When you start out, you kind of hope for success… That’s what you are working for. But you never really know. It’s been surreal, really.” The bassist has been with AC/DC since 1978, recording a total of 11 consecutive albums with them. With his departure, only Angus Young remains at the band’s core.With this news, it seems that AC/DC’s Rock or Bust tour may be their last ever. We salute you.last_img read more
