AC/DC News about Calling it a Day Not True

AC/DC News about Calling it a Day Not True
ACDC

The news about AC/DC calling it a day is simply not true. It’s just that one of the band members is a little sick and taking time off from tours.

It’s been four decades since AC/DC have entertained crowds of rabid fans with their power crunch style of heavy rock lyrics. The band started out in 1973 and today it is a legend in its own right. 

Yet there were rumors recently on the Internet that the band was looking to retire from the musical entertainment business. However, after some speculation it turned out that one of the members of the group was suffering from ill health due to which a slight delay had occurred in the touring schedule of the musicians. 

In fact, they planned to have 40 tours at 40 venues around the globe. Malcolm Young, the guitarist and brother of Angus Young, had a small stroke and was recovering at home with family. The band has requested the fans to respect the privacy of the convalescing member. 

AC/DC officially states on its website, "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."

"We are definitely getting together in May in Vancouver," Brian Johnson told the Telegraph. "We're going to pick up some guitars, have a plonk, and see if anybody has got any tunes or ideas. If anything happens, we'll record it."

"I wouldn't like to say anything either way about the future," he said. "I'm not ruling anything out. One of the boys has a debilitating illness, but I don't want to say too much about it. He is very proud and private, a wonderful chap. We've been pals for 35 years and I look up to him very much."

Brian also spoke of how the group had survived the 80s and 90s via their authenticity. Had they changed their style in response to the people’s preferences they would be extinct by now. 

There is a guitarist among the band members that actually wears a schoolboy uniform complete with blazer, tie and shorts. The group has very strong bonds between all its members and they are like one big happy family. 

One of the band members passed away due to an alcohol overdose way back in 1980 and was replaced by Brian Johnson. The band has a “tough as nails” approach to music and all things musical. Their songs evoke the harder and lustier passions among the audience. 

And they still have it in them to last for another 40 years provided they live that long enough. This is one band that is a powerhouse and each of the individuals that compose it is a dynamo and live wire. They won’t be retiring soon. 

 

"That would be a wonderful way to say bye bye," said Johnson. "We would love to do it. But it's all up in the air at the moment. AC/DC is such a tight family. We've stuck to our guns through the Eighties and Nineties when people were saying we should change our clothes and our style. But we didn't and people got it that we are the real deal."
