AC/DC Release ‘Rock or Bust’ Video
The clip makes no reference to the twin dramas that have put two key AC/DC members out of action in recent months, instead simply showing the group doing what they do best: playing awesome rock and roll while surrounded by screaming fans.
'Rock or Bust' is AC/DC's first album since 2008's 'Black Ice,' and the first since founding rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young was forced to retire after it was revealed he is suffering from dementia. Stevie Young -- nephew to both Malcolm and lead guitarist Angus Young -- filled in for his uncle during the recording of 'Rock or Bust' and is expected to do the same when the group tours in support of the album next year.
What's less certain at this time is who will be playing drums when that tour starts. Longtime drummer Phil Rudd was arrested earlier this month for possession of meth and marijuana, and for allegedly threatening to kill two men. The last charge alone could put him behind bars for seven years. AC/DC has repeatedly declared in recent weeks that their tour plans will not be affected by Rudd's potential absence.
'Rock or Bust' hits stores Dec. 2. You can watch all five parts of our exclusive interview with the band here:
