[ENT] AC/DC bass guitarist Paul Matters dies after quitting music for ‘reclusive life’


Former AC/DC bass guitarist Paul Matters has died.

Matters joined the legendary rock band in 1975 after the release of their High Voltage album, replacing original bassist Larry Van Kriedt.

He was then fired just a few weeks later with Mark Evans stepping in to his shoes.

Matters’ death was announced on Facebook by his friend Rod Wescombe, who said the musician had led a ‘reclusive life’ in recent years with the wild rock and roll lifestyle of his youth causing him health problems.

Wescombe wrote: “‘Shocked and sad to hear of the passing of Paul Matters.

“I first met Paul in 1973 when he was playing bass in “Armageddon” at a gig in Hamilton,Newcastle N.S.W..

“When I was living in Toronto he would drop into the house in the late hours to party and he loved to party.

“In late ’75 after he departed AC/DC we played together in a one off band called ‘Miss Australia Band’ at a gig on a ferry on Lake Macquarie.
