AC/DC Bassist Cliff Williams Announces RetirementAC/DC bassist Cliff Williams has quit the band, as TMZ points out. While he had alluded to his departure in an interview from July, Williams has confirmed his retirement in a new video message. Watch it below. He’s the latest band member to depart from the Australian rock group; most recently, lead singer Brian Johnson had to stop touring with the band due to his potential for hearing loss. Before that, drummer Phil Rudd left after being hit with a drug conviction, and guitarist Malcolm Young stepped down after being diagnosed with dementia. Williams will leave the band after they finish their current Rock Or Bust Tour.

“The audience, the fans, the supporters have been brilliant,” Williams said in his message. “It's time for me to step out, not because we've lost Phil or Brian, but... everything changes. When Bon died, that changed everything too. I'm just ready to get off the road. In between tours, we take a few years off. So I know what I'm going to do. It's just my time. Family time, now. Just chill out.”

Williams was AC/DC’s bassist beginning with their 1978 album Powerage.
