“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.”

It has come as a shocker to the music fraternity that the legendary Australian band – AC/DC are rumored to be ‘retiring’  from their 40 year journey in the world of rock and roll! The rumors about AC/DC’s break-up stemmed from an anonymous email to Perth radio station 6PR by a person identifying themselves only as “Thunderstruck”, who said: “I have extremely good contacts in Europe that are very close to AC/DC. I have it on very good authority that one of the band members is quite ill and has returned to Australia with his family. AC/DC members have previously made a pact that no band members will be replaced should someone need to leave the band. No more is currently being said, however the particularly ill member of AC/DC’s son has stated that AC/DC may well be over.” quoted The Guardian. (The member in question is said to be rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young)

Entertainment reporter Peter Ford told 6PR he believed the information to be correct. “It may be that … they don’t actually retire as such, they just never perform together again or record again.”

AC/DC’s singer, Brian Johnson, told a Florida radio station in February that a band member had been ill, which had caused them to be tight-lipped about their plans. “We’ve been denying anything, ’cause we weren’t sure,” he said. “One of our boys was pretty ill, so we didn’t like to say anything, and we’re very private about things like this, so we didn’t wanna say anything.

Earlier this year, frontman Brian Johnson revealed that the rock legends were poised to start work on new music. And there was talk of the band celebrating its 40th anniversary with a special world tour, though nothing was confirmed.
