Former AC/DC singer Dave Evans recently told Nacion Rock Mexico that he doesn’t think Angus Young can continue AC/DC without Malcolm Young, who died in 2017, but was absent for the ‘Rock or Bust’ tour due to his dementia. Stevie Young replaced him on guitar. An AC/DC singer revealed why he ‘refuses’ to forgive Angus Young earlier this week.
The interviewer asked (via translation), “What is your opinion on the current situation of AC / DC? Do you think the band could continue doing great things after the death of a member as essential as Malcolm Young?”
Evans responded, “I see it very difficult, since Malcolm was the true influence and head of AC / DC, also one of the most important composers, the riffs and the songs, his sound and vision, that was what he transmitted to us. It will be very difficult for the band.”
He later added, “However, I am witnessing that many musicians have passed through the group and I think that the sound can always be renewed without losing the essence of what AC / DC is, there could be a new line-up that works really well for what is come on; New album, new band, new label, new everything.”
Evans also wrote about his Mexican tour on Facebook, “Another fantastic show in Puebla City, Mexico with my great Mexican Badasses. The crowd was incredible and the Mexican rock fans don’t hold back with their appreciation. Cheering and chanting and had to have tight security in and out of McCarthy’s who once again gave me and my band 5 star treatment !! Gotta love Mexico!!!!!!”
He added, “MEXICO – With Damian Antreando the Entertainment and Promotions Manager of McCarthy’s extensive chain of upmarket Irish Pubs in Mexico. We are leaving another 5 star hotel accommodation during my tour of their great venues incorporated into my current tour of Mexico. Me and my band have received the royal treatment from McCarthy’s and very pleased and grateful for their endorsement.” An AC/DC icon reveals if he hates the singer after a bad breakup.
