AC/DC bassist Cliff Willams hints that he may retire after the band’s current, Rock Or Bust, tour ends.

Williams tells Gulfshore Life “It’s been what I’ve known for the past 40 years, but after this tour I’m backing off of touring and recording. Losing [guitarist] Malcolm [Young], the thing with [drummer] Phil [Rudd] and now with [singer] Brian [Johnson], it’s a changed animal. I feel in my gut it’s the right thing.”

“When you start out, you kind of hope for success,” Williams says. “That’s what you are working for. But you never really know. It’s been surreal, really.

    i would like to see the show with axl as well,but no can do…it was a time though!!!!time to say goodnight rosie

    His gut feeling is certainly the right feeling – this isn’t AC/Dc anymore (even though Axl did better than I expected) – and without Cliff it mostly definitely will not be so. Finally someone in the business who knows when it is time to stop before becoming a sad money-grab tribute to your own past. The AC/DC we all know and love will and has already come to an end. So now it is up to Angus to carry on with some kind of tribute band or show some gut feeling too and know the right point for retirement and going out on top.

    exactly without Brian it is worse than a tribute band it is paying full price to see them in an arena to hear that banshee butcher truly incredible songs. The mystique of AC/DC is destroyed. I had tix to the Buffalo show then heard what was replacing Johnson and i went to get the refund.
