AC/DC Frontman Offers Health Update On Founding Member Malcolm Young

acdc-band-new

AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson has released a short, but hopeful update regarding the health of founding member and living rock icon Malcolm Young.

Speaking with TeamRock Radio during an interview earlier this month, Brian Johnson was asked if he could offer fans any insight on the ongoing health problems facing Malcolm Young. He confessed that Young is still in the hospital, but assured listeners both he and the rest of the band were confident Young would one day return to the stage. “We miss Malcolm, obviously. He’s a fighter. He’s in hospital but he’s a fighter. We’ve got our fingers crossed that he’ll get strong again.”

Later in the conversation, Johnson added “He’s such a strong man. He’s a small guy, but he’s very strong. He’s proud and he’s very private, so we can’t say too much. But fingers crossed, he’ll be back.”

There have been reports that AC/DC finished recording a new album in Vancouver earlier this year, but due to Young’s ongoing health problems it seems unlikely that the record will surface anytime during 2014. Early next year, however, is a completely different story. Follow UTG on Twitter for updates.
