A day after a photograph of longtime AC/DC members Brian Johnson and Phil Rudd was posted online, purportedly taken outside Vancouver's Warehouse Studios — where the band's last three albums were recorded — a picture of Stevie and Angus Young has emerged, apparently showing the pair at the same location.
Like the first photo, the new picture was taken by hardcore AC/DC fan Crystal Lambert, who has an apartment located near the studio, and shows Angus and Stevie having a cigarette.
Canadian journalist Steve Newton, who broke the news of AC/DC's presence at the studio, writes in his latest blog that there might not be any newer photos to come, because word got out that the legendary rockers were being spied on, and now there's a big umbrella on the deck blocking the sight of any of them hanging out.
The assumption is that AC/DC is in the midst of making — or at least planning — another album, with Rudd and Johnson both back in the lineup.
Ever since AC/DC completed the tour cycle for its 2014 album "Rock Or Bust" nearly two years ago — a turbulent trek that weathered the forced retirement and eventual death of co-founder Malcolm Young, plus the departures of Johnson, Rudd and bassist Cliff Williams — fans have wondered whether sole remaining founding member Angus Young would keep the band going or decide it was time for AC/DC to pack it in.
Johnson was forced to leave AC/DC mid-tour due to a dangerous level of hearing loss, and was eventually replaced on the road by GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose, while Williams decided to retire at the end of the cycle.
Rudd's spot behind the kit for AC/DC's "Rock Or Bust" world tour was taken by Chris Slade in 2015 after Rudd was arrested for drug possession and threatening to kill an employee.
Angus has not said publicly what he has planned for the future of AC/DC.
The Warehouse has been AC/DC's studio of choice for the band's last three albums: 2000's "Stiff Upper Lip", 2008's "Black Ice" and the aforementioned "Rock Or Bust".
