AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young isn't expected to return, biographer says

By Daniel S Levine,

While AC/DC isn’t done rocking that highway to hell just yet, a biographer of the band is not expecting guitarist Malcolm Young to be returning. Young did recently fall ill, but singer Brian Young has said that the group is recording and going to tour again.

Jesse Fink spoke with Boston’s WZLX this week to talk about The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC, his new book. However, he did speak about the group’s future, which he said may be without Malcolm.

“I’m not expecting to see Malcolm return,” Fink told the station. He didn’t add any further details or give an update on Malcolm’s health, but said he expects that Steve Young is now in the band.

While Johnson did confirm earlier this year that Malcolm is ill, he has stressed that the group is not retiring. In another update in June, Johnson wrote that “it looks very likely that we will be on the road again before the end of the year.”

AC/DC will be celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, which the tour would celebrate. If they do release a new record, it will be their first since 2008’s Black Ice.
