AC/DC is back with its beloved frontman Brian Johnson, drummer, Phil Rudd, and bassist Cliff Williams. NME reported the band has confirmed the lineup — which is rounded out with co-founder Angus Young and nephew Stevie Young on guitars.  Williams had retired from the band back in 2016 at the conclusion of the “Rock Or Bust” global trek — which featured Axl Rose replacing Brian Johnson, who was suffering from hearing issues. Drummer, Phil Rudd, who battled both drug and legal issues, is back behind the kit for the first time since 2015.
