Tim Cashmere sets the record straight on AC/DC
Leave it to veteran rock journalist, Tim Cashmere, to set the record straight on these wild rumors about a new AC/DC album. Here's the real scoop from Undercover Music News.
AC/DC Are Not In The Studio
by Tim Cashmere - January 10 2008
"AC/DC are not in the studio, they are not recording with Mutt Lange and they don't have a title for an album which has been widely reported to be called 'Strap It On'.
Following stories that the band have returned to the studio for their first album since 2000's 'Stiff Upper Lip', Albert Records' Danny Keenan has told Undercover they're hopeful, but it's not the case.
"If you ask me if they're in the studio today, I can tell you they're not. If you ask me if they were in the studio last week, I can tell you they're not. If you ask me if they're in the studio next week, I can tell you they're not.
"We're pretty hopeful, but unfortunately there is no word of an album at this stage."
The band's last album was 'Stiff Upper Lip' in 2000, and after the accompanying world tour they've remained fairly quiet.
Despite a now 8 year absence from a new recording, the band had the number 4 DVD in Australia last year with 'Plug Me In'."
So there you have it, AccaDacca fans. Calm down for the moment and let's see what develops about this supposed gig in Switzerland, too. (Hint: Not gonna happen!)
By the way, this isn't the first time Mr. Cashmere has helpfully squashed the Strap It On rumors as evidenced by this story from December 21, 2006.
