Gus Griesinger from Backstage Axxess spoke with legendary AC/DC bassist Cliff Williams at the NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) convention which took place January 24-27 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. Williams talked about his deal with Ampeg amplifiers, his leisure time fishing in Florida and what is in AC/DC's future.

About when fans can expect a follow-up to 2008's Black Ice Williams responded: "Nothing in the works right now. We're still getting over the last tour. Just hanging out and doing stuff. I know the guys (guitarists Angus and Malcolm Young) are writing new material and when it's ready they'll give us a holler."

About the AC/DC writing process Williams adds: "(Angus and Malcolm) will get a bunch of ideas together - some are more together than others - then we'll all hit the studio or a little rehearsal room and we'll kick it around with a producer. Right now Angus and Malcolm aren't ready for us yet."

AC/DC's Black Ice World Tour ran from 2008-2010 in support of the group's 15th studio album, Black Ice, which was released in October 2008. The jaunt began in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, United States in late October 2008. By spring 2010, the tour had reached North America, Europe, South America, Oceania and Asia. The tour took in 160 shows and ended up being the most successful by AC/DC, grossing roughly $441.1 million, making it the third highest-grossing concert tour of all-time.
