Dave Evans, the original lead singer of AC/DC, is marking the 50th anniversary of the band’s earliest recordings and live performances.

Speaking with Peru’s Milenial TV, Evans revealed plans for new solo music. He shared:

“I have numerous albums and CDs out there, all available on YouTube for anyone interested. But I’m excited to announce that I have fresh material on the horizon.”

Recalling his recent studio session in Denmark with Flemming Rasmussen, known for his work with Metallica, Evans disclosed:

“I’ve recorded two original songs with Flemming. They’ll be hitting the airwaves in just a few weeks. Stay tuned for the release. I’m keeping the titles under wraps for now, but you’ll hear about them soon. Yes, there are two brand-new rock tracks coming your way.”

Evans played a significant role in AC/DC’s early days, recording their first two singles before parting ways in 1974. Reflecting on his departure from the band, Evans explained:

“We were all very young with big ambitions. But issues arose, particularly regarding payment for our performances. Despite our success, financial disagreements led to my decision to leave.”

Detailing his reasons further, Evans said:

“It’s like any job; if you’re not getting paid, it’s unsustainable. I had bills to cover while others in the band didn’t face the same pressures. So, I stood up for myself and left.”

Discussing Bon Scott, who succeeded him as AC/DC’s frontman, Evans expressed empathy, noting the challenges Scott faced before his untimely death. Evans shared:

“Bon went through a lot, and his struggles were evident. His passing didn’t come as a surprise to me.”

Evans also addressed the enduring popularity of AC/DC’s early hits, including “Can I Sit Next To You Girl”, acknowledging its resonance with fans worldwide.

Continuity After Loss

Looking ahead, Evans dismissed the idea of AC/DC’s demise after Bon Scott’s death, emphasizing the band’s resilience through lineup changes. He praised Malcolm Young’s leadership while acknowledging the irreplaceable void left by his passing.

In addition to his upcoming music, Evans recently released a compilation album titled Badass Greatest Hits, featuring 20 of his most significant tracks, including “Rockin’ In The Parlour.”
