AC/DC's Malcolm Young is seriously ill and will never perform live again, a friend and musical contemporary says.
Choirboys frontman Mark Gable says he believes the 61-year-old founding guitarist is unable to perform anymore and will probably never record again.

I hate it when that happens. I mean I love the Young brothers and it's just real sad that AC/DC will be retiring. Wish they could grant me a favor of making a concert in the Philippines, there are so many AC/DC fans including me out there to see them again.

Hope he'll be alright, I used to listen to AC/DC religiously back in the day. Would be really tragic to lose such a great name in rock history.

Malcolm was the only reason they continued after Bon's death. He is practically the heart and soul of the band who mainly writes and produces their material. I mean, the Young brothers (all three of them - including that Easy Beats member) have left their mark on the history of classic rock; no doubt. If Malcolm were to pass away soon, even though sounding horrible, just may be a relief for a band that's been dedicated to their career for a good part of their life.

I'm really not sure but I'm sure whoever they'll pick will be great. I mean, Brian Johnson is great and they did a good job whilst replacing Phil Rudd with Chris Slade for some time.

They will be recording in a Vancouver studio in May this year.

It sounds as though he's been sick for a while but now it's reared its head and his illness has taken a dive. I honestly can't see them continuing if Malcolm doesn't return, he's been the creative force behind the band since it began, where it was basically his (and Angus') way or the highway. I wouldn't be surprised if Angus hung up the guitar for good if Malcolm officially pulls out or passes away.

According to the article I culled up last night, a mere 3 hours old at the time, AC/DC's statement is they'll keep making music. Normally I'd want to hear about all this from Eddie Trunk and That Metal Show, but they just ended their season again, so sad.

 

The odd thing is keeping quiet on the reasoning front, but like Slayer, I think AC/DC might continue in a similar fashion, as they did before in 1980 with Brian Johnson, but I really think firstly, they'll get a studio recording I think was already in the works....released.

 

Just as an aside about Malcolm, Dave Mustaine of Megadeth had an accidental hand injury and it seemed pretty grave for his guitar playing to continue at all, and he sold off all his guitars at the time. I remember it well, Earl Root was still with us, and we talked about buying them! (dreaming of course) but he recovered, and we pray the same for Malcolm. He's taking an extended leave or hiatus if you will. Doesn't sound like he's on death's door from what I read so far.

If memory serves, the article was posted late last night from CNN's site. At times though, I think even respectable news sources could be taking their information second or third hand.

 

This says he suffered a stroke, which happens to tons of people, and his age, could be, he could recover, but it could effect him forever after as well, so he SHOULD take it easy in recovering for awhile

...in the comments section, someone may know the fact or rumor, however,

 

Here's one of the all Classic Rock site's story;

Read it elsewhere now as well, so I would assume it might be a stroke. Until such time as there's more factual info to go on.

I was thinking and referring to actor Kirk Douglas who also suffered a stroke and it impacted his speech the most, so very sad. He's one of our living legends, I believe if he didn't pass away and I forgot already??

-mightymomo22, please reframe from using one worded posts multiple times in a topic. Just letting you know before a moderator gets to it first.

I have heard reports that Mal is having trouble remembering faces and events. I'm guessing he still remembers the band and the music but maybe not relatives - other than his close family. Like Slaman said, I believe that they have got material ready to record - whether Mal can participate or not, doesn't exactly matter BECAUSE I think they'll find a decent rhythm guitarist.

Some people don't recover 100% from strokes. They are usually permanently damaged after one.

If Malcolm's forgetting things he could be suffering Alzheimer's but that's a gradual disease I think can become apparent if not detected, but there's no cure I believe.

I think that a stroke can cause memory. Not too sure tho.

So far, it sounds like they might do the Slayer thing, and as they had done with the loss of Bon Scott, they came back stronger then ever, and I think the band have the power and integrity to do so. Slayer hasn't lost anything live with the proper man to come in and fill the shoes of Jeff Hannaman.

I also think if it weren't JUST being discussed, they had already been working on songs, but some of this latest news makes it sound like they hadn't really committed to songs for the new album. That's the confusing bit as well, in all this. At least it had been mentioned on That Metal Show IIRC
