AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson told the The Cowhead Show that the band’s new album plans have been delayed by illness. “One of the boys is a little sick and I can’t say anything, but he’s getting better. He’s doing wonderful. Full recovery fully expected.”

Johnson says that he expects the band to go back into the studio later this year to start working on a follow-up to 2008’s Black Ice.

“It’s a wonderful thing when we get in a room. Whenever the boys get back together, I get all excited. The boys, after a while, pick the guitars up, Phil [Rudd] will make his way to the drums, Cliff [Williams] will pull his bass out and then all of a sudden this noise comes out and I sit there with just this big old grin on my face.”
