The Razors Edge was released in 1990 🤦♂️
First time I've ever heard this man speak.
Cliff doesn’t get as much of the praise as some of the others, but he really should. I’ll say this, I’d be nowhere near as thrilled to be watching an AC/DC show and see anyone else but him in that position.
He did an album called The Razor’s Edge” with us. He might have added we had a small hit called Thunderstruck
You rock , Cliff 🤘
Love ya daddy Cliff!
Cliff: you have the best position of ANY R&R player of all time. You’re tall, have a full head of hair, are never shaken, and rock solid. Lord, I wish I had your height , hair and talent!
The thing I love about AC/DC is that they make me feel like I've been friends with them for years, even though I haven't met them. I feel like I'm having a conversation with them when I watch stuff like interviews even though I've never been able to say anything to them. They always puts a smile on my face and make me happy, ever since I first got into AC/DC before I could walk. thank you AC/DC. You've inspired me as a 17 year old to pick up my guitar, microphone, drums and bass and give it my best shot to make more rock n roll in the world.
As a bass player myself and a big AC/DC fan I've always loved listening to Cliff bring it out and lay it down, I'm always looking at bass tab of AC/DC's music and i incorporate a lot of Cliff's licks and runs into my own music he's one of the best I've ever seen
Criminally Underrated Bassist Cliff William Is Awesome But As Usual A Lot Of Bass Players Don’t Get The Recognition They Deserve
What an absolute legend
So glad the band got together again to bring us the 2020 highlight of a difficult year with PWR UP!
But all that era was lucky, these days that opportunity does not exist!! And Australia also is no where what it used to be!!
Bass player in AC/DC is the best job in the world. Playing one note for fifty years and getting paid for it? The only job that comes this close is the Cowbell player in Blue Oyster Cult. Man, what a gig.
The coolest guy in rock. Does his job perfectly, is modest, and is super-cool. I’m bald, 60 years old, and am very envious of his long hair and how he has stayed in shape. Then he said “God Bless”. That’s all I needed to hear. A great ambassador of rock and roll!
Love ya cliff bass on new album good
AC/DC so good
cliff & phil together might just be unbeatable, idk
All of the AcDc band mates are so polite and humble, soft spoken. You'd never guess they were rock n roll stars if you didn't know them.
Cliff plays with all the power of a Thunder God! Silent legend.
I must admit I was never a fan but I can now see how amazing the band are ...didn't this all first begin with the Easybeats ? That is where the seed was planted.
I met Cliff at Target. He has a winter home right down the road from me.
@Chicken Parma Yes I do.
You live in FL?
THE BEST BAND IN THE WORLD
Where can I get a pair of those horns?!
Go to Amazon and type in "ac/dc horns" or ac/dc horn hats". Hope you find what you're looking for! 👍🏻
Cliff is a bass genius, period. Then he's gentle like all the members of the band.
The real Bass Man💯🤘
Thank you Cliff for coming out of retirement to reform the band in 2018-2019 to give us an excellent album in late 2020.
I've met cliff and he's a down to earth kinda guy.
He was hiding his true feelings in this interview because he left shortly after this because he said it just wasn't the same without Phil and Brian, and that's why he came back now because they are back, and the new album kicks ass I think it's the best album since Back in Black.
A shy and quiet guy, but no one understands AC/DC like he does and because of that, this band has that great sound.
Glad to see ya back
Cliff is the Best..a super great Bass player & perfect fit for AC⚡DC..!!!
Glad to see Cliff back for their new album.The chemistry is still there.👍🎸
I appreciate the man he is, he is humble, I respect him and he is a very good bassist
To me Axel Rose 'ruined' the band when he was 'onboard' with ACDC, I'm 'glad' that he's gone now!!!!
Jesus, another one. I think Axl is as much of a douche as the next guy but everyone bashing him on this is either tonedeaf or are just bashing him for his personality, which I'll admit, usually does suck. The truth is musically he did a pretty damn good job. Far better than he sings his own stuff live, which is what I expected when I heard he was hired for this and like most I thought Angus was nuts bringing him onboard. For the vast majority of the performances the truth is he was on key, in time and he even managed to behave himself. It wasn't perfect, especially with Chris Slade drumming without a swing in his beat the whole time which personally drives me up a wall lol. To each their own I guess. I enjoyed it even though what I heard were cell phone recordings with a potato for a microphone. If they ever release a live cut, I'd buy it.
Fuck Axl Rose.
Nice to see him talk a bit. Dude wasn't even MENTIONED, let alone was interviewed, for their Behind the Music back in 2000-ish.
Angus said when they hired Cliff, it was because his style was a good fit, and he was a very good bassist. They also thought his good looks would attract more women fans. lol
Cuando sacan um dvd en vivo con axel rose o del año 2015 con brian
He's still got the hair style he had in the 70s
Esse é o famoso 1 nota KkKkKkKk?
Such a humble sweet guy. Not like most of these celebrity musos.
Great to have you back Cliff! Power Up!!
Hows the tinnitus?
Glad your back Cliff but I would have loved you with or without AC/DC, and the same for Brian, we (the fans) really love you no matter what. But I am glad your back!

Absolutely one of the all-time greats. You don't need to be fancy, you just need to be.
N he's back
Very underrated bass guitarist. His bass on shot down in flames for example is marvelous. That groove...
Cliffs got some amazing hair 🤘
My favourite AC/DC bassline 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 E: 0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0
I love the whole band. But if I had to choose one for my favorite member, It would be Angus.
The best Bass players are all named Cliff
*UMA DAS MAIS MAGNÍFICA BANDA DO MUNDO* 🇧🇷
Rhythm monsters, could embarrass a metronome. That rhythm behind Angus' antics out on the tiles during Let There Be Rock, I've never heard anything so completely reliable. It just gives me chills to flip back and forth from Angus to that rhythm, that undying, unyielding, rock solid rhythm. This band and Zeppelin knew the value of the rhythm section. I wonder why they are both iconic?
Cliff maestro ojala que vuelvas para 2021
What a brutal job. Cliff did well for himself! And he did not hire any hit-men BONUS!
To me his accent sounds more Australian than Londoner. Is that right? Anyone
Axel rose did awesome with these guys. Much respect for him..
Nice genuine, cool bloke
Love a dude who enjoys his work? What do you put on your resume if need be after 40 years, tried to stay out of Angus’ way for 40 years. Lol
Cliff is WAAAAY underrated. Solid player whos great live in concert.
R.I.P. Cliff... Burton
Since Cliff has now retired it would be cool to bring back Mark Evans. Probably won't happen though.
cliff, thanks. n.n
Cliff, I have been listening to you since 1977 so I have been with you since you started. You are a great bassist. Have been able to enjoy the band for all these years and it has been one hell of a ride. Thank you. Long live AC/DC.
Cliff has always gone about his business and is perfect at it.
Never knew they had a bassist...
He’s got a great head of hair still !
Come on Cliff:....:, Axl was HORRIBLE as the front man for the GREATEST rock band ever -- AC/DC !!!!! I bet Bon is still rolling over !!!!!
Phil Rudd. The only member of ACDC born in Australia. True story
Great player who knew his role.
The greatest band in history...my addiction since 1976.....AC/DC nobody but nobody in my book compares to them....AC/DC and the three stooges prevent and cure depression..
AMEN BROTHER!!! Since 1977 here.
Legendary band.. I've been a fan since 1978
Since 1976 here.
I hated Axl Rose for the longest time because he fucked up a concert in Auburn Hills, Michigan. I was so mad at him that I stopped listening to Guns N' Roses altogether. That was in the 90s. THEN on an AC/DC tour Brian Johnson lost his hearing. So Axl Rose stepped up and finished the tour w/AC/DC AND THAT WAS FUCKING HEROIC Y'ALL!!!!! Axl Rose is now a rock star hero for all time. God bless W. Axl Rose!!!!
Cliff literally is the entire backbone of most songs in the Back in Black and albums after that. He’s also the backbone of the song Who Made Who
chris slade is an amazing drummer
Agreed but Phil is better
Very underrated Bass player with out him AC/DC would never have that special sound they have. Angus, Brian which are mostly heard from it would be nice to hear more from Cliff I swear Bass players and the one's that have been with a band for ages never get the recognition they deserve with all the cool sounds they come up with to make a song sound great with out them heavy music or music in general would sound really flat and boring bass gives music that drive.
They beefed up his tone and his volume in the new album. Much more powerful sounding but somehow still nicely balanced.
Axle was a turn off for me.
Brian's ears are fixed. Apparently he is back. I've never been an Axle fan.
@JayDee LOL. Something tells me ticket sales would have dropped like a rock after the first time they tried that. Probably would have resulted in a riot too. I'd be pretty pissed if I paid 100 bucks for a concert ticket and there was no lead singer. You stand there and sing if you want to but if it were me....as Axl would say.... "I'm going home!' (MIC SLAM) ;)
People sure are coming down hard on Axl and I got to admit when I first heard he was finishing the tour with them I was highly skeptical and even scoffed because we all know how good he can be when he wants to but the Axl we usually get is the whining, bitching shithead who shows up late and then takes his tardiness out on the crowd with a crummy performance and a shit attitude. Throwing the microphone and stomping off, stopping the show to bitch about his life etc... My first thought was maybe Angus should get checked for dementia as well! However, after I heard it I was thoroughly impressed. He wasn't as good as Brian or Bon but he did an excellent job on short notice, sang quite a few Bon Scott tunes Brian cant do and even managed to behave himself, respect his bandmates and put forth an honest effort. If they ever make those shows into a live album, I'd buy it. It's just too bad he can't sing that well for his own band most of the time. If you ask me you are all blaming the wrong person. Angus is the one who hired him. Musically he actually did a respectable job. People just don't like it because well.... lets face it... Axl can be a dick! He is getting better about it though.
Yup. AC/DC is working class blue jeans no drama double fisting living every minute hard rock n roll. Axle had no f$cking business sharing that stage! Let the audience sing in respect to Bon & Brian. Every single Stadium would have still been packed with voice.
he was there for a month , so they could finish the tour. Get over it.
The greatest rhythm section in rocknroll in my humble opinion, Malcolm RIP, Cliff and Phil Rudd. It is their foundation upon which AC/DC's sound is built. Without the swing that they provide it just wouldn't sound the same. A lot of bands (Krokus, Rhino Bucket, Airborne, Burnt Out Wreck) try to sound like AC/DC and produce entertaining music, but they can't quite replicate the feel and that swing that the classic DC rhythm section had.
@Jerry Atwooll I always did like Krokus because of their rhythm section. You're right though, noone does it quite like AC/DC and it's a lot harder to reproduce than naive people think it is. It may look like those three have the easiest job on the planet behind Brian and Angus just holding a solid rhythm but it's a lot more intricate than most ppl realize and these guys are absolutely masterful in their performance. The most solid backbone in rock and roll.
@bluebandit834 I agree with you now 👆👍👍 wrote that comment a while ago
@Jack Thomson Rudd's timing is flawless but there is a "Swing" in his beat that is required for the proper sound. A simple accented stagger in the hihat and a late snare pretty much is the main difference. You can hit the bass drum a touch early too putting a little more delay between it and the snare for added effect. There is a trick with the hihat he does as well that not only make it half the effort but also gives it a different accent and tone by making every other strike towards the top of the hihat with the tip of the stick and the egde of it with the side of the stick. Watch him carefully sometime , It's slick as hell and he can do it all while smoking a cigarette!
Rudd is the foundation of that swing too. That's why Chris Slade only sounds good on The Razor's Edge material. He was their drummer when they did it and it meshed well but the rest of their music was all pretty much written with Rudd behind the kit and as Brian Johnson says "If it doesn't swing, it doesn't mean a thing.." The rest of the music feels sloppy and unorganized with Slade drumming because it just doesn't quite fit.
@Jack Thomson Always swingin, there's even an interview with Angus where he explains what he means by saying they're a Rock n Roll Band and not a Rock Band.
He’s really underrated as an AC/DC band member. Most people overlook him and go to Angus, Malcolm, and Brian, and of course Bon too.
This is so true. In all my years of listening to rock it seems like most of the time the bassist is least shown or spoken about. They all deserve equal recognition as they are the driving force behind the band.
🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼☝️☝️☝️☝️☝️. Long LIVE AC/DC
LEGEND AND they all seem just like normal guys .... and they are HUGE ROCK ALL OF THEM INCLUDING BON SCOTT RIP ..
Cliff has the sweetest job in the world.🤘🏻
Powerage has always been my favourite album, still have the original album 😁
They really took off with Cliff on bass. The perfect pick! He had that certain less is more thing to add. Very underrated as a bass player, Cliff Williams! Absolutely not ego driven like todays lead bassists.
The whole band is less is more. Pure energy. Casuals wouldn't understand.
