Clifford Williams (born 14 December 1949) is an English musician who has been a member of the Australian hard rock band AC/DC as their bassist and backing vocalist since 1977 except for a brief retirement from 2016 to 2018. He had started his professional music career in 1967 and was previously in the British groups Home and Bandit. His first studio album with AC/DC was Powerage in 1978. The band, including Williams, was inducted into the American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.

As for bassist Cliff Williams' recent revelation that he was likely retiring at the end of the band's touring, Young stated that this was something that had been in the works for a while.

His bass lines are refreshingly straightforward and to the point, never drawing too much attention, but always bolstering the song. Because he fills this fundamental role so seamlessly, one might think that any bass player could do what he does. Late in 2014, AC/DC released Rock or Bust, its 12th album with Williams on bass, and 15th overall. The album was surrounded by controversy from the get-go. First, founding rhythm guitarist and primary songwriter Malcolm Young was diagnosed with dementia and had to retire from the band and the music business. He was replaced by his nephew, Stevie Young, for both the album and the tour.
