RIP AC/DC 1973-2014 *May Or May Not Have Split*

AC/DC are ending their 41 year career on a terribly sad note. Plans were underway for a new studio album, their first since 2008′s monumental Black Ice, and a ’40th Anniversary’ world tour, 40 huge shows across the globe. About 3 weeks ago, founding member, rhythm guitarist, co-producer and co-songwriter Malcolm Young had a stroke, which left a blood clot on his brain.

When AC/DC reunited at the start of April to begin a month of rehearsals, in the lead-up to new album recording sessions, Malcolm discovered he couldn’t play. At least, he couldn’t play like he used to play. Nothing has been officially confirmed, as of this writing, but friends and family members have been discussing what happened to Malcolm for the past couple of weeks. The blood clot, resulting from the stroke, is believed to be why Malcolm couldn’t keep working.

Although friends have described Malcolm’s condition as serious, it doesn’t mean he won’t recover. People do get better after strokes, and people do recover lost skills. But friends and family of band members believe the decision was made last week to call it quits.

  1. You are spreading disinformation, here. First, your stupid "Using pizza as a pillow' photo, now, the rumor that AC/DC is disbanding. They are not breaking up. One of your own links states that very fact..

    1. At the time this was posted, this was the official statement.

      As for the 'pizza as a pillow'...you have no sense of humour, thought of working at a funeral home?

    2. I did a poll, both at a gathering of friends, as well as at my workplace (not a funeral home) and the general consensus was "lame". Also, a lot of sites publish retractions/updates, if their stories change.
      Oh, well, I will just remove this site from my list of bookmarked sites, and go elsewhere, in search of entertainment.

    3. This blog is not updated on that regular a basis as I have a full time job. It's impossible to please everyone with my unpaid, thankless blogging, so I don't try to.
