AC/DC: Rock Or Bust

Album Review

Oz rock gods overcome their annus horribilis

The exhilaration that accompanied the news that, far from splitting up, as was heavily rumoured, AC/DC were to return in 2014 with a new studio album has rather been eclipsed by recent events. The revelation in September that the Australian quintet’s redoubtable leader Malcolm Young is suffering from dementia delivered a harsh, sobering jolt of reality for fans of a band that has always been larger and louder than life, while drummer Phil Rudd’s November arrest on charges of plotting to arrange a double murder was unquestionably the most jaw-dropping moment of the year.
