    AC/DC Biographer Does Not Expect to See Guitarist Malcolm Young Return to Band
    by Graham 'Gruhamed' Hartmann August 6, 2014

    Since AC/DC formed in 1973, guitarist Malcolm Young, along with his brother Angus, has been rocking the planet basically nonstop. After over 40 years with the iconic rock band, Malcolm Young has been sidelined with serious health issues. Malcolm’s future with AC/DC is still in question, but Jesse Fink, author of the new book ‘The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC,’ says he’s “not expecting to see Malcolm return.”

    The Young family and AC/DC have kept the details of Malcolm’s illness private, though it’s been rumored that the rock legend had suffered a stroke, could be dealing with Alzheimer’s, dementia or possibly cancer. A source has also claimed that Malcolm is having trouble recognizing familiar faces.

    Boston radio station WZLX spoke with AC/DC biographer Jesse Fink about Malcolm Young, uncovering what could be the most detailed explanation of Young’s future to date. “I’m not expecting to see Malcolm return,” says Fink. “I think the important thing is we all let Mal be and hope he can recover. But I think we should all expect that Stevie Young (Malcolm’s nephew) is in the band now.”

    In addition Fink tells Ultimate Classic Rock, “As far as I’m concerned, his illness is a private matter. However, fans seem to think his illness is just going to quickly go away and he’s going to be there on stage when they announce their tour. If what I have heard from numerous sources is true, then I expect Stevie Young will be touring with the band and not Malcolm. That’s not a seditious viewpoint. It’s realistic.”

    Though Fink’s insight is somber news, the biographer speaks well of the band’s upcoming album, their first ever without Malcolm. “I’m hearing on very reliable authority the new album is up there with [2009?s] ‘Black Ice‘ or even better,” Fink reveals. “So Stevie must be a good replacement for Mal.”

    AC/DC are hoping to release their latest album in 2014
    . Stay tuned for more on AC/DC and the band’s newest offering as news breaks.

                    HELL’S BELLS ARE RINGING: Columbia has just confirmed those rumors rumbling up from the netherworld, announcing the release of Rock or Bust, AC/DC’s first studio album in six years. The new record, hitting on 12/2, can be seen as a gift-wrapped present to the label’s Q4 bottom line; previous LP Black Ice debuted at #1 in 31 countries back in 2008 and went on to move nearly 8m units worldwide. Like its predecessor, Rock or Bust was produced by Brendan O'Brien (Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots) and mixed by Mike Fraser. Starting this weekend, baseball fans will be hearing a lot of album track “Play Ball,” which will be used extensively in Turner Sports’ coverage of the American League postseason. AC/DC will spend much of 2015 touring the world behind Rock or Bust, but they’ll do so without founding member Malcolm Young, whose ongoing medical condition forced him to retire prior to the recording sessions this spring. Stevie Young, nephew of Angus and Malcolm Young, plays rhythm guitar on the new album and will also be part of the band’s touring lineup. (9/24a)

                                  23xP well overdue! Let's hope it gets a new cert soon with the new album and tour coming up. Their 1992 "Live" & "Live Collector's Edition" albums have both been overdue for years as well.

                                  I suppose "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap", "If You Want Blood", "Powerage" and "Blow Up Your Video" could be ready too.
                                  And how about the DVDs? "Live at River Plate" hasn't even been certified yet!
