Australian rockers AC/DC have been appearing in the news recently, but not about their music. Longtime guitarist Malcolm Young left the band permanently as he faces the next phase of his longtime battle with dementia from a nursing home, and drummer Phil Rudd was recently charged with attempting to procure a murder (then dropped), threatening to kill, possession of methamphetamine and possession of cannabis. All this just as they prepare to tour in support of their latest album release Rock or Bust.
However, AC/DC singer Brian Johnson, lead guitarist Angus Young, replacement guitarist (and nephew to Malcolm & Angus) Stevie Young, and bassist Cliff Williams all appear in the new music video “Play Ball,” directed by longtime music video director & AC/DC go-to helmer David Mallet. Phil Rudd does not appear in the video.
You can see the recently-released video here, along with a great behind-the-scenes video with Mallet. Check it out below, and don’t forget to grab their latest album Rock or Bust.
