Here is today’s statement from AC/DC.com …
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.
Meanwhile the band is scheduled to continue working on a new AC/DC album in Vancouver.
“We are definitely getting together in May in Vancouver,” says Brian Johnson, adding “We’re going to pick up some guitars, have a plonk, and see if anybody has got any tunes or ideas. If anything happens, we’ll record it.”
