Guesting on The Rock Show With Johnnie Walker, which airs via BBC Radio 2, AC/DC guitarist Angus Young discussed the band's new Power Up album, and discussed moving forward without brither / bandmate Malcolm Young, who passed away from dementia in 2017 at age 64. Check out the interview here.
Angus: "He was also very practical in how he would do things. He knew exactly, when the band was formed, how he wanted it to sound, and the style of the music which we would play. So it was all his direction, and it was that direction we followed all the way through our career. I miss him when he's not there in a physical sense. But I feel him when I've got the guitar playing. I can feel him around me."
Last week, AC/DC landed at #1 on charts in 18 countries with their 17th studio album, Power Up. The band took the top spot on charts in Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Norway, New Zealand, Portugal, Sweden, UK, and the US, where the album entered the Billboard 200 chart with over 117,000 copies sold in the first week.

For Power Up, the band reunited with producer Brendan O’Brien who helmed the double-platinum Black Ice in 2008 and the gold Rock Or Bust in 2014. Charged up for the next decade, AC/DC cut twelve new tracks for the album, proudly maintaining their signature sound and all of its powerful hallmarks.
The AC/DC lineup of Angus Young (lead guitar), Brian Johnson (lead vocals), Cliff Williams (bass guitar), Phil Rudd (drums), and Stevie Young (rhythm guitar) is firing on all cylinders once again.
