It's been all over the media, I did not read any of the articles but there seems to be no details as to what is going on with him.

I heard it on our local radio station this morning too.

 

Along with rumors they have studio time booked in I think Vancouver.

 

The rumor said they were holding a press conference today to announce it.

 

I guess we'll see.

Supposedly 3 weeks ago, Malcolm had a stroke, which left a blood clot on his brain...upon meeting up to rehearse this month, leading up to new recording sessions scheduled for May, Malcolm discovered he couldn't play..at least not how he used to.

 

This is what I'm seeing at least.

Your seeing this from where exactly?

 

Just google "Malcolm Young sick" and you'll find a dozen results with this being the only specific explanation. Every other explanation is just "he's ill". The band has yet to confirm anything, but I just found that explanation by an Austrialian journalist which was posted 12:00pm EST today, so it's some of the more recent news we have..

http://loudwire.com/acdc-retirement-intensifies-report-malcolm-young-stroke/

 

Last night we reported conflicting rumors concerning AC/DC’s future — one in which the band were close to announcing their retirement and another where they had booked studio time to start work on their next album. But it now appears as though the retirement rumors are gaining strength as further details backing up the story have been revealed.

 

According to Australian journalist Darryl Mason, founding guitarist Malcolm Young recently suffered a stroke that left a blood clot on his brain. Mason reports via his blog The Orstrahyun that when AC/DC reunited in April to being rehearsals, Young discovered that he was unable to play like he used to play.

 

Earlier this year, frontman Brian Johnson confirmed in an interview that recording on the band’s new album had been delayed because one of the members had been seriously ill, but stated at the time that he felt that a new album and tour was still in the works.

 

The talk of the band booking studio time in Vancouver to work on a new album at the beginning of May could be legit, as they would have to schedule time in advance of recording. But it’s also possible that things have changed since they initially booked the studio time.

 

Mason reports in his article that nothing has been confirmed as of yet, but he states that friends and family members have been openly discussing what happened to Young and feel that is why the guitarist couldn’t keep working.

 

It has also been stated that the band has a pact to not replace any of their members, so continuing without the guitarist appears to be leading the band toward the retirement path. Mason also reports that the group is expected to make an announcement at an upcoming press conference.

Well, the band released a statement on their Facebook page, and it seems the rumors are only half right:

Apparently Stevie Young (son of George Young) replaced Malcolm several years back and no one even noticed... :)

 

 

So he may be stepping in unless ACDC decide to call it quits.
