AC/DC over? Brian Johnson Quits…!, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

AC/DC has taken a few hard hits lately but is this the last straw? If Brian’s hearing is in danger, I don’t blame him for retiring. I wonder how the fans will react to a guest singer to fulfill their postponed concert dates?

Brian Johnson-4


From the Sydney Journal:

With Brian Johnson reluctantly quitting as AC/DC’s singer the question has to be asked: is this the end for AC/DC, not only Australia’s biggest band but one of the world’s biggest?

Reports are saying Malcolm Young of AC/DC has Dementia, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Sad. sad. sad. Of course, thousands of people are suffering from it as well. It’s a terrible disease.




While it is known that AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young is ailing and is no longer in the band, there haven’t been many details about his health. Now, new reports by two Australian newspapers give further insight into Malcolm’s condition.

The newspaper The Australian reports that Malcolm suffered a stroke last year, as the Sydney Morning Herald proclaims that the guitarist is currently suffering from serious dementia. While both a stroke and dementia have been rumored in past stories, these new articles give more credence to those earlier reports.

Both newspapers report that Malcolm is currently in full-time care at a nursing home facility called the Lulworth House in Elizabeth Bay in suburban Sydney, Australia. A source close to the band tells the Sydney Morning Herald, “If you were in the room with [Malcolm] and walked out, then came back in one minute later, he wouldn’t remember who you are. He has a complete loss of short-term memory.”

Meanwhile, in an article in The Australian newspaper [via the AAP newswire], AC/DC’s former manager Michael Browning says, “I have friends that are still involved and they keep me posted so I have known for a little while. I think [Young’s illness] came on very suddenly,” adding, “It’s shocking, it’s terrible. Sadly for AC/DC they’re losing their creator, their mentor — he’s the genius behind the band.”

As reported earlier this week, AC/DC announced details of their new album, ‘Rock or Bust,’ which is due out in the States on Dec. 2. The disc contains the song ‘Play Ball,’ which is featured in new promos for TBS’ coverage of Major League Baseball’s postseason games. Along with the album announcement, AC/DC confirmed that Malcolm Young would not be returning to the band. He has been replaced by Stevie Young, who is the nephew of both Malcolm and his brother Angus.

Malcolm Young Officially Retires from AC/DC, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Malcolm Young, the rhythm machine for the rock band AC/DC has retired due to health reasons. AC/DC will press on with a new Album coming this December and a world tour in 2015.



Malcolm Young, one of the founding members of legendary Australian rockers AC/DC, has retired due to health issues, but the band will press ahead with a world tour next year.

The high-voltage group, one of the biggest grossing bands of all time, was founded by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young in Sydney in 1973, and has gone on to sell more than 200 million albums.

In announcing a new record, Rock or Bust, AC/DC said guitarist Young, 61, would not be returning to the line-up after he took a break earlier this year due to unspecified ill health.

“Unfortunately, due to the nature of Malcolm’s condition, he will not be returning to the band,” the band said on its website.
