'Play Ball' to air on radio stations worldwide today!

After a 60 second teaser, the new AC/DC single 'Play Ball' will be played on radio stations across the globe today Tuesday 6 October.  You will be able to hear the song in Belgium on Studio Brussel and Classic21 this morning.  Other international radio stations include Virginradio (Italy), Q107 (Canada), CJay92 (France) and TheLoop (US).  Listen to the 60 second cut below, in case you missed it:


The video clip for this new song has been recorded last Friday in a studio in London.  One day later, the band recorded the clip for the title track of the new album "Rock or Bust" in the same studio in the company of somewhat 400 AC/DC fans that flew in from all over the world.  Now it has been officially anncounced that Malcolm Young retires from the band, family member Stevie Young hit the rhythm guitar and Bob Richards (since 1997 in British 60's bands Man) kicked the drums, as Phil Rudd seemed to have a personal emergency.  You can read some interesting stories on those sessions on acdc-abruzzo.blogspot.com . This picture showed the small arena that was built for the occcasion:  


Stay tuned for more news on the album very soon! 

Last words in this story go to Malcolm Young.  With his departure from the band due to illness, AC/DC loses its pulse and backbone.  Ever since the very beginning of AC/DC as well as musically thanks to his steady rhythm guitar work, Malcolm played a leading role in the development of the band.  Together with his little brother Angus, he brought the band -along the long way- all the way to the top.  If Bon Scott was the 'Thunderbolt in the middle' of the band's name, Malcolm still is the secret to the band's electrifying power play.   There is little chance that we will see him again on stage with the band, but he will forever be AC/DC.  We wish Malcolm all the best and are sending him our strength to him and to his family.

Stevie Young will walk in Malcolm's footsteps.  Stevie already briefly joined the band in 1988, so he sure knows the chords.  He recorded the forthcoming studio album 'Rock or Bust' album in Vancouver together with Brian, Phil, Cliff and Angus, and will join the band on tour in 2015.  23 May is rumoured to be the French date on the (40?) show 'Rock or Bust' tour. Rock or Bust!
