“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.”

    Yeah, Sabbath look tired on this leg of the tour. I think they shoulda regrouped and attacked in the Fall. Faceless/nameless bands today. Look at the House Of Blues schedual in L.A. compared to years ago, it is a joke.

    Maybe Paul will say Peter hates an ethnic race and get more publicity to sell more books.

    I hope the other members of AC/DC take the cue to quit smoking….

    What does Kiss have to do with this. Its an official statement from AC DC and the health of Malcok young. In typical fashion people just write negative comments with no consideration.
