Malcom Young is the founding member and rhythm guitarist for the band, AC/DC. The band has announced via their website that due to illness Malcom will not be present on the new album, Rock or Bust, or accompany the band on their upcoming world wide tour.
“Rock or Bust is the first AC/DC album in the band’s 41-year history without founding member Malcolm Young on the recordings. Earlier this year AC/DC released a statement explaining that due to illness, Malcolm would be taking a break from the band. Unfortunately, due to the nature of Malcolm’s condition, he will not be returning to the band. AC/DC will undertake a world tour in support of Rock or Bust in 2015.
