AC/DC Reunite With Chris Slade
(Classic Rock) Former AC/DC drummer Chris Slade reunited with the band to fill in for Phil Rudd during the band's performance at the Grammy Award ceremony in Los Angeles, and has been pictured signing AC/DC memorabilia at a pre-event charity bash.
Also pictured at the event were the band's Brian Johnson and Cliff Williams, further fuelling speculation that Slade was to fill the drum stool vacancy created by Rudd's ongoing legal battles.
Rumors began to circulate earlier this week that the Welsh drummer had been asked to return, and he's now released a statement. "This is an amazing opportunity for me," says Slade. "After all, most people don't ever get to play with their favorite band once, let alone TWICE!
"I would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming support I have been shown personally, on the Facebook page and other social media. Not one comment has gone unread and it has been very humbling. Thanks so much."
