Recently asked about AC/DC's upcoming 15th studio effort, the first one not to feature founding guitarist Malcolm Young, drummer Phil Rudd had one word to describe the process - "stellar."
"It was done in 10 days and I've never played better. I hope it's as good as I remember when I came away from the studio. It's pretty damn good," he said.
Explaining how mastering was also scratched off to-do list, Rudd complained about the production pace, saying, "Usually you master something and wait a couple of weeks and you go and have a listen to it. They do things a certain way - I think they're taking too long."
As reported, Malcolm's health issues have prevented the axeman not only from performing, but playing guitar altogether, sparking a series of rumors predicting the end of AC/DC. However, the group recuperated with Young's nephew Stevie and is still chugging along. Also, sharks like AC/DC, more here.
