The legendary rock group announced this week that its longtime guitarist Malcolm Young, 61, is taking some time off due to concerns over an illness, but his remaining veteran bandmates plan to keep making music in his absence
AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young, 61, is taking some time off from the band due to concerns over his “ill health,” the band announced Wednesday via Facebook.
Malcolm Young, brother to AC/DC guitarist and wearer of trademark tie-with-schoolboy-shorts Angus Young, has been with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted group since its founding 40 years ago.
“Malcolm would like to thank the group’s diehard legions of fans worldwide for their never-ending love and support,” the band said in the statement. “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.”
