AC/DC bassist talks 2011 plans

After the completion of their two years on the road for the band’s “Black Ice” tour, AC/DC bassist Cliff Williams has some massive plans for 2011.

“Fishing…and fishing," Williams told the Artisan News Service. "I love fishing. Just basically farting around."

"Feet up and a long rest after two years on the road,” said Cliff. “We're just going to take it easy for a while and see what happens. I'm sure the brothers (Angus and Malcolm Young) are writing … and I'm not (laughs). No, just take a break. It was a long tour."

After a long and lengthy tour its now time for AC/DC band members to have some rest and recharger their batteries.
