Former AC/DC drummer regrets leaving the band

Former AC/DC drummer Chris Slade quit the band back in 1994 and has revealed that he regrets his decision.

According to Loudwire, Slade said, "I'd been doing demos with the guys in London for two months, when Malcolm called and said they wanted to give Phil Rudd a try. I said, 'That's me out then – I'm gone.' Mal said, 'No, we want to keep you on. We don't even know if Phil can play.' I told him that was his problem now."

He continued, "It was probably my stupid pride. If that was my son, I'd say, 'Just sit there – they'll come back to you.' To be honest I think they would have. But they're very proud themselves, and they wouldn’t come back now.”
