AC/DC Recording Tribute to Malcolm Young, Says Eddie Trunk

Brian Johnson and AC/DC are working on new music and plotting a tour, says radio host Eddie Trunk

For months now, there have been rumors circulating that AC/DC is back together with vocalist Brian Johnson and working on new music. Last week, longtime AC/DC engineer Mike Fraser told Tony “Jack the Bear” Mantz in an interview that Johnson, indeed, is back with AC/DC and working on new tunes, and now, another insider is making similar comments.

Radio host Eddie Trunk is saying that Johnson is not only working on new music with AC/DC but also planning to hit the road with the band.

AC/DC last toured with Axl Rose of Guns N’ Roses on vocals, as Johnson had to drop off the tour due to hearing loss issues that required immediate treatment. Since coming off that tour, Johnson has performed a handful of times in public — including with Robert Plant and Mick Fleetwood — leading to speculation that his health would be good enough to return to AC/DC at some point, whether that means recording, touring or both.

“I think AC/DC it’s pretty much a done deal that these guys are gonna make a record or have mad a record and a record is gonna come out,” Trunk states in the video, which can be viewed below. He added, “I have sources that have told me that they are absolutely going to tour with Brian back again. That’s all unconfirmed from their camp, but I had it from some reliable sources.”

Later in the video, Trunk reiterates, “I think it’s pretty much a done deal that AC/DC at the very least are going to release some sort of record and it’ll be some sort of record and it’ll be some sort of tribute to Malcolm [Young] just like ‘Back in Black’ was a tribute to Bon (Scott). So I have no doubt about that and I’m pretty confident they’re probably going to do shows as well but I think at this point it’s pretty much just when they announce it.”
