Word via Eddie Trunk is that not only is AC/DC recording (or having recorded) a new album, but plans to tour with Brian Johnson. The band themselves have only acknowledged that they have recorded "something for a project" but apparently its an open secret.
I'm not a big AC/DC fan, but didn't they also lose a member or two? Do they now fall into "that category"?
Unfortunately, Malcolm Young recently passed away. He was diagnosed with dementia and replaced by his nephew Stevie Young prior to the release of their 2014 album Rock or Bust, which is the last album they released.
Phil Rudd, their long time drummer has some run ins with the law around that time and was replaced by Chris Slade, who drummed with them in the early 1990s. But, I've heard that Rudd could be brought back into the fold.
If Rudd and Johnson return, you have 4/5 of the Back in Black lineup, so if that's the case, I wouldn't put them in "that category."
Very interesting...Songs inspired by Southern California pop records from the late 60's/early 70's. I hope they sound like "Girls In Their Summer Clothes". So, this isn't an E- Street Band album? And orchestral arrangements? You have to think one or a couple songs will be Brian Wilson-influenced. Interesting album cover, too. First single, "Hello Sunshine" comes out...tonight!
B.E.: I skimmed the Mark Linett interview recently posted on SSMB. He said he’s hoping for a Fall release for the box set.

Sheriff John Stone: Was hoping for a spring/early summer release, however, I hope for a spring/early summer release with EVERY Beach Boys' album! I can wait for fall.

Kapitan: Maybe we’ll get that BW doc that we heard about way back when, Long Promised Doc 😀

kds: I get the feeling that documentary will one day be mentioned in the same breath as the 50th Anniversary Doc that was supposed to happen in 2012
Feb 27, 2020 20:55:14 GMT
Kapitan: And Pleasure Island!?

Sheriff John Stone: I'm skeptical about that Long Promised Road doc, not whether it will eventually come out, but the quality. If the highlight is Brian and an interviewer driving around and Brian commenting on BB songs/albums, I can only imagine how that'll go...

Sheriff John Stone: ...Brian, what do you think about the song, "Long Promised Road"? Brian - "I thought Carl sang it great." Brian, what do you think about The Beach Boys Love You album? Brian - "There's some great songs on that album."

Kapitan: I'm skeptical about EVERYTHING. But that doesn't mean I'm not interested in seeing and hearing it all.

Wata: I hope it would include some rarities - hopefully with the accompanying soundtrack. And it's time we got to listen to snippets from the rendition of "Long Promised Road" Brian supposedly recorded for the doc. I'm not holding my breath for it, but still...

kds: From the description, it sounded like a new version of the Brian Wilson On Tour doc.

Kapitan: Except as I recall, they were focusing on driving around LA for a lot of it. Just Brian and whoever the eventual filmmaker was (there had been a replacement) seeing the sights and chatting.

Kapitan: btw, it's just a couple weeks shy of a year since they released the movie poster.
Feb 28, 2020 13:31:24 GMT
kds: And, didn't they do the driving around bit in the IJWMFTT doc?
