How many musicians can you name that have played and recorded with Tom Jones, Manfred Mann's Earth Band, Denny Laine, Uriah Heep, David Gilmour, The Firm, and AC/DC and many others?
Well, if I did not mention AC/DC, you probably could not name such a person. As it is, AC/DC has been in the news for months, mostly about their new album “Rock or Bust” and most recently, about their Feb. 8th performance at the Grammy's.
Chris Slade is the well traveled, man of the world and probably the only musician to have played with so many other great artists.
Chris will be filling in for longtime AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd. Phil is embroiled in a mess of personal legal troubles that prevent him from working with the band at this time, and AC/DC have called on Chris Slade to fill in for the band's upcoming world tour in support of “Rock or Bust.”
This is no surprise, Chris Slade worked with the group years ago, recorded with them 'The Razor's Edge” and toured with them, so bringing him back was an obvious choice.
For fans everywhere, this is good news.
Welcome back Chris!
