VIDEO: AC/DC photo shoot

AC/DC are sharing behind the scenes footage from a band photo shoot from last fall.

The session produced the first photo of their new lineup without founding member Malcolm Young, who retired last year due to health issues.

The image (above) features singer Brian Johnson, guitarists Angus and Stevie Young, and bassist Cliff Williams…noticeably absent is drummer Phil Rudd.

Rudd missed the photo session and a video shoot just weeks before his November 6 arrest on multiple charges by New Zealand police – including possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis and threatening to kill.

Rudd’s trial will begin April 21.

AC/DC brought in former member Chris Slade to replace Rudd for the band’s Rock Or Bust world tour; he made his return to the lineup when the group opened the 57th annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on February 1.
