AC/DC statement - AC/DC Lives!

"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."

After the wildest rumours of these past few days, here it is.  An official statement from the band.  It says it all in the first couple of words and in the last sentence.  All in between is very personal and private.  I deeply feel with the Family in these tough times and wish Malcolm all the best.  Malcolm Young is a fighter, a humble and generous man, and has been more than the backbone for this band that has been a beacon for Rock and Roll history for more than 40 years...... and still counting, just like it reads in the last phrase: AC/DC lives !
