In March 2016 singer Brian Johnson was [[http://consequenceofsound.net/2016/03/acdc-frontman-brian-johnson-ordered-to-stop-touring-immediately-or-risk-total-hearing-loss/ ordered]] by doctors to stop touring immediately or risk permanently losing his hearing. Ten scheduled U.S. dates on their 2016 tour were subsequently postponed as a result, with the band promising to reschedule them with a guest vocalist. In April 2016, Axl Rose of Music/GunsNRoses was [[http://time.com/4297027/axl-rose-acdc-world-tour/ announced]] to be the guest vocalist joining the band to finish out the tour. Fan reaction was mostly negative to say the least, but the band finished out the tour. Long term bassist Cliff Williams retired at the end of the 2016 "Rock or Bust" tour - this leaves Angus as the sole surviving founder member. As the band have now lost four long-time members in quick succession, the band's long-term future is in doubt with many commentators suggesting it's time for the band to call it a day and go out on high note. However, At the end of the tour, Rose was announced as a full-time member of the band, and he's hinted that he'd like to make new music as AC/DC with Angus.

'''AC/DC''' is an Australian rock band formed in 1973 by guitarists and brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, and made their big break internationally with ''Highway to Hell'' in 1979. In 1980, their lead singer Bon Scott died of "death by misadventure" -- asphyxiation from choking on his own vomit after a night of binge drinking. The band considered breaking up but got a new lead singer, Brian Johnson and made ''Music/BackInBlack'' and have been making records ever since. Drummer Phil Rudd was fired in 1983 and replaced by Simon Wright who, after that, was replaced by Chris Slade, who was in his turn asked to leave so Phil Rudd could return as drummer in 1994. In 2014, Malcolm Young was forced to retire due to serious health issues (early-onset dementia), and was replaced by his nephew Stevie Young, who previously temporarily filled in for Malcolm in 1988 when Malcolm was dealing with his alcoholism. In April 2015, Rudd pleaded guilty to various drug charges and threatening to kill his assistant, and was subsequently replaced -- again -- by Chris Slade.

* DwindlingParty: Malcolm couldn't record ''Rock or Bust''. Phil couldn't tour for it. Then Brian had to sit the final concerts out. And all the departures made Cliff decide to leave once it's done.

* RevolvingDoorBand: The band formed in 1973. By 1975 when they first hit the big time (in Australia at least), they were on their 8th drummer (Phil Rudd), 6th bassist (Mark Evans), and 2nd vocalist. The second vocalist (Bon Scott) was one of the previous seven drummers, as well as the band's driver before that (the Young brothers thought having him play music instead increased their chances of [[DrivesLikeCrazy getting home from a show alive]]). Furthering the revolving part, Chris Slade is Phil Rudd's predecessor (once Rudd decided to return in 1994) and successor (when the drummer [[RoleEndingMisdemeanor went nuts and was arrested for it]] in 2014 and thus the band decided to part ways). Add in Malcolm's and Brian's departures due to health issues in 2014 and 2016 respectively and Cliff's imminent retirement the trope is in full effect.
