AC/DC Bassist CLIFF WILLIAMS Sells Fort Myers, Florida Mansion For $7 Million

According to, AC/DC bassist Cliff Williams has sold 13,223-square-foot, seven-room south Fort Myers, Florida mansion for the full asking price of $6,995,000. The rocker purchased the house in 2010 for $5.1 million. The home sits on 2.5 acres and features seven full bathrooms, two half bathrooms and two guesthouses.

Back in 2010, Williams listed his Savannah, Georgia townhouse and a Fort Myers, Florida home. The Georgia townhouse was said to be a restored home that was originally built in 1872. Williams and his wife bought the home in 2006 for $1.5 million to stay there while they visited their son who attended college in the area. They spent over a year renovating the four-bedroom home and added an English pub-style bar. The three-story townhouse had a side garden and a carriage house with two bedrooms. This home was listed at $1.95 million.

The couple was also selling a four-bedroom home in Fort Myers, Florida. That home was a two-story Mediterranean-style home with a courtyard in Edgewater of Gulf Harbour. This home had a outdoor kitchen with gas grill and bonus soundproof music studio/exercise/hobby room over garage. The courtyard lanai included a woodburning fireplace with a gas starter and the pool is screened in. The home was prepared for storm season with a whole house backup generator with 500-gallon propane tank, as well as new impact windows. It was listed at $1.375 million.

AC/DC's sixteenth studio album, "Rock Or Bust", has sold around 529,000 copies since debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard album chart back in December.

It's the band's first album without founding guitarist Malcolm Young, who is suffering from dementia. He has been replaced by nephew Stevie Young.

AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was arrested last November at his home in Tauranga on charges of threatening to kill and possession of methamphetamine and cannabis.

Although Rudd played on "Rock Or Bust", he did not appear in photos or videos for the disc.

One-time AC/DC drummer Chris Slade officially joined the band's lineup for its performance on the February 8 Grammy Awards telecast. Slade is also behind the kit for the group's current world tour.

The band will return to North America later this summer for 13 more tour dates, starting on August 22 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts and wrapping up on September 28 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
