    It seems as if a couple of pictures lead to a great deal of speculation and rumours. I can't find ANYTHING that would actually prove this to be true!

    It would be nice if Mal came back though! I don't think Axl would ever be there.

    Well, it would, but it would also be a bit H.P. Lovecraft. Essential saltes and formulae chanted out loud.

    It'd be nicer if the last four and a half years didn't happen the way they did.

    Well Phil and Brian were pictured.

    Question is really about Cliff, right?
  3.  
    Do we know for a fact that the pics were taken in 2018 or during the RoB sessions?

    Must admit I did think those pictures at the studio in Vancouver showed holograms of Brian and Phil, rather than real people.

    It was the big 'H' stamped on their foreheads that made me suspect, too.

    The pictures are good and Brian (and assuming the others) stayed at the Shangri-La Hotel for the month of August. And of course I discovered this after spending the majority of the month at the wrong FUCKING hotel.

    Yes, photographic evidence. If they were fake, someone official or from the band would have come out and said so; no news is also news in this instance. They’re not fake. Just take a look at Fraser’s phone in the one where he’s sat on the balcony, it’s huge. Definitely 2018, and definitely an album on the way this year
  5.  
    As much as I am pulling for Slade to stay with the band, I cannot eschew the photographic evidence that Brian and Phil are doing something with Stevie and Angus. The question is what they are doing. Album and a magical tour where the band's lawyer opens the world up to Phil? With enough money, it seems anything is possible.

    Slade has remained silent on the issue. He's content making jewelry and touring the world, playing drums and snapping photos of his adventures for the time being. Axl hasn't said a word either. Cliff is still a big question mark.

    Well, Phil was able to tour a good bit of Europe on his own, so the European leg of any future AC/DC tour shouldn't be too much of a problem. And he was apparently able to get to Canada. So, the only real question mark that remains is about the United States, since they tour it so heavily. I think Phil will be OK, here, too.

    https://www.ezborder...

    A) Phil was done on drug possession last time out. How many non-American rock stars have been done for possession of drugs, but continued to be able to tour the States and elsewhere? I'm sensing there's wiggle room in that law.

    B) His sentence was 8 months of home detention. I don't know if this is seen as the same thing as standard incarceration when it comes to getting entry into the states.

    C) Phil won't have to fill out a single form or meet with a single customs official, so there'll be no nervous scenes where he's being cross-examined at a table in a dark room with a single light bulb overhead. If his and the band's lawyers are earning their money, he'll simply get the call that he's good to go.

    Worst comes to worst, the band do their tour as a run of dates in London or something.

    Wasn't Phil cleared of any restrictions after serving the penalty in full? I remember reading an interview done after the 8 months of detention, Phil talked about him being free to travel anywhere then.

    He would have too wait X amount of time before being able too apply too go too USA or other visa controled country they have the ££££££ etc he will get it no doubt
  6.  
    He didn’t get off the hook in the first place because he probably couldn’t prove his employment. If he is indeed back it has been cleared up even if his sentence hasn’t run it’s course.

    Posted By: rideon77Phil biggest issue Is healt I think. The rest Can Be solved by money


    As the band members age, health becomes more and more of a concern for each of them, so I don't know if he's necessarily any worse or better than the rest in that regard. That's talking about physical health, though. Regarding mental health, it seems to me that Phil is the most fragile in this category. Well, that is to say he's spoken quite openly about his issues. But as far as travelling around the world goes, doing it with AC/DC has to be one of the least strenuous ways (not counting time on stage) - you travel in luxury, everything's booked and ready to go, it's private planes and private cars. I'd say Phil would survive that.

    Yeah, and now his heart issues have been fairly well fixed. Malcolm had a pacemaker installed, but he probably would have continued touring if the dementia had not got him. Maybe if Phil cuts it back from 40 Rothmans a day to 20, he'll be fine.

    I'm no doctor either, but I'd say he's in much better form to play with the blockage cleared, rather than before when it was building up.

    I saw him with his band play in 2017, so after the heart attack, and there were no issues with his playing.

    I would think so Thankass, which could also mean it (Wrigley) simply got scrapped.if they could scrap that expensive of a project they can scrap this.

    No I don’t think that happened or suggesting it. I went from no hope, to now my hopes to high, getting anxious here.

    I`m sure Brian is fit to tour - he isn't going to risk going deaf and i doubt AC/DC inc. would want to risk him bailing on another tour if not.

    Yeah, this deaf issue really needs some proper explanation if a tour in some form will be happening.

    If it is the Ambrosio device it still will raise questions; they had at least one year time (from Coachella to feb 2016) to look for every possible solution in the market. I don't think mr. Ambrosio is the first and only to come up with such a solution.
