The news about Malcolm Young has been flying back and forth with rumours of him recently suffering a stroke and maybe the band calling it a day...only to have Brian Johnson deny the rumour stating the band would be convening in Vancouver next month to write and record. BUT JUST IN...it is confirmed that due to serious health concerns...Malcolm would be indeed taking a hiatus from the band. From the AC/DC facebook page:
After forty years of life dedicated to AC/DC, guitarist and founding member Malcolm Young is taking a break from the band due to ill health. Malcolm would like to thank the group’s diehard legions of fans worldwide for their never-ending love and support.
In light of this news, AC/DC asks that Malcolm and his family’s privacy be respected during this time. The band will continue to make music.
Needless to say, AC/DC is a band that KGB has been proud to play and support since their beginning and we wish only the very best for Malcolm and his loved ones. Long live AC/DC!
