Vintage Rock conducted an interview with drummer Chris Slade (AC/DC, THE FIRM) at the 2012 NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) show, a massive music-products convention that took place January 19-22 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. You can now watch the chat below.
Slade received his highest exposure in 1989 when he was asked to join AC/DC as the replacement for Simon Wright. Slade played on the 1990 “Razor’s Edge” album and accompanying world tour and the “Big Gun” single, released in 1993. The Young brothers, however, asked Slade to leave after four years with the group and reinstated former drummer Phil Rudd, saying that Rudd had demonstrated a “groove” more fitting their style of rock.
