Triple M Exclusive: AC/DC’s Brian Johnson and Angus Young
Rock legends Brian Johnson and Angus Young caught up with Sydney’s Triple M Grill Team on the release of their 17th studio LP 'Rock or Bust'
Gus Worland asked, “…There’s eleven tracks on the new album, all very short and punchy – was that deliberate?”
Angus Young said “Yeah it was. I guess it goes back to the time of the sixties when the songs were short and sweet…they all pack that power into a few minutes….that’s what we wanted, we just wanted to pack as much punch into each track as we done. Brendan O’Brien, he was the one saying ‘we’ve got to keep a lot of interest, we don’t want people to be bored you know, we want them to hear excitement all the way through,’ so that’s what we went for.”

Young was asked about the huge controversy surrounding Rudd “He’s in a strange place, in a strange situation…It’s something we have to get resolved, if we’re going forward, something has to get resolved,” Young said.
"We had a few problems ourselves before he got into this situation. There was a lot of strange behaviour going on. I guess you could put it down to him just not showing up for a lot of what we were doing and when you have to get to a stage where you have to convince someone to be there, you know it wears thin after a while – but it’s something we have to resolve.
“It is a bit of a question mark…we go back a long way, he is a great drummer, but I think over these last few years, I don’t know what he’s got into or anything – I guess it doesn’t help the situation that he’s in.”
