Chris Slade Records AC/DC Tribute Album

Apparently, it’s a comparatively short way back to the top for former AC/DC drummer Chris Slade, who recently recorded the band’s classic track “It’s A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock & Roll)” (from AC/DC’s first American LP High Voltage) with Lizzie Borden guitarist Ira Black. The track is slated to appear on the upcoming Versailles Records release, Rock & Roll Train: A Millennium Tribute To AC/DC. In addition to Slade and Black, the album promises to feature a veritable cavalcade of metal sidemen from such bands as Guns ’N Roses, Megadeth, Fuel, Hanoi Rocks, and L.A. Guns, among others. DRUM! publisher Phil Hood still hasn’t announced whether he’ll pose in his Angus Young naughty schoolboy uniform for the cover photo. Stay tuned for further details.
