Slade probably received his highest exposure in 1989 when he was asked to join the Australian hard rock group AC/DC after their then-drummer Simon Wright had departed, beating out Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler who was rejected due to news of his firing from Guns N' Roses due to overt drug abuse. The Young brothers (Angus and Malcolm) initially hired Slade only temporarily, then asked him during the recording of the only feature album he made with them, to join the band. Slade then played on the successful The Razors Edge album and also on the tour. The brothers, however, asked Slade to leave after four years with the group and reinstated former drummer Phil Rudd, claiming that Rudd had demonstrated a "groove" more fitting their style of rock. Angus Young was heard saying, "Chris was probably the best musician in the band. We hate to lose him, but getting Phil back is worth asking him to leave."
