Whoops, had Malcolm on the brain after all the previous posts. ANGUS looks OLD. He’s a stud, though.

PHIL RUDD On AC/DC’s Future Plans: ‘It’s Either Do It Now Or Do It Posthumously’
http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/phil-rudd-on-acdcs-future-plans-its-either-do-it-now-or-do-it-posthumously/

David Farrier of New Zealand’s 3 News conducted an interview with AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd ahead of the release of Rudd’s solo debut, “Head Job”. You can now watch the chat at this location.

Asked about AC/DC’s current status and plans for the immediate future, Rudd said: “I can’t really offer anything official, but I’m pretty sure something’s gonna happen in the not-too-distant future. ‘Cause we’re all getting on a bit. It’s either do it now or do it posthumously.”

Rudd last week said that AC/DC’s new album is better than its predecessor, 2008′s “Black Ice”, even though founding guitarist Malcolm Young was not present for the sessions. In an interview with Australian radio station Triple M, Rudd called the record “stellar,” adding, “I hope it’s as good as I remember when I came away from the studio. It’s pretty damn good.”

Although some music news sites erroneously quoted Rudd as saying that the album was recorded in 10 days, he actually said that he was done with his drum parts in that time, adding, “I’ve never played better.”

According to The Pulse Of Radio, Rudd, who releases his debut solo album “Head Job” on Friday (August 29), recently confirmed during an appearance on Australia’s “Today Show” that AC/DC will play live again.

He explained, “There will be another tour, and I’ll be on it. And when there’s another one, I’ll be on that. And another record, I’ll be on that. It’ll go until it dies. We’ll probably all have to be dead before it stops, you know what I’m saying? You’ll never stop Angus [Young], mate.”

AC/DC announced earlier this summer that Malcolm Young was stepping down from the group after 40 years due to unspecified health issues.

The band recently completed recording on its 16th studio album, with Malcolm and Angus’ nephew Stevie Young filling in for Malcolm on guitar. The disc is due out before the end of the year.

Can’t wait!
I’m sure he finished his drum parts in no time. So awesomely basic yet effective.

NEW AC/DC ALBUM “ROCK OR BUST” AVAILABLE DECEMBER 2ND
September 24, 2014 By Dana 6 Comments
Columbia Records proudly announces the release of Rock or Bust, the highly anticipated new studio album from AC/DC, available December 2nd, 2014.
Rock or Bust is the band’s first studio album in six years and features 11 new tracks. Rock or Bust follows the immensely successful Black Ice album, which debuted at #1 in 31 countries upon its release in 2008 and has gone on to sell nearly 8 million copies worldwide. Rock or Bust was recorded in Spring 2014 at Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, BC and finds AC/DC once again working with producer Brendan O’Brien and mixer Mike Fraser.
Starting September 27th, Turner Sports will provide fans a sneak peek of the new track Play Ball as part of the 2014 Major League Baseball Postseason campaign. The content will run for several weeks across TBS, the exclusive home to this year’s American League Postseason coverage, as well as leading media brands within the Turner portfolio.
Rock or Bust is the first AC/DC album in the band’s 41 year history without founding member Malcolm Young on the recordings. Earlier this year AC/DC released a statement, explaining that due to illness Malcolm would be taking a break from the band. Unfortunately, due to the nature of Malcolm’s condition, he will not be returning to the band. AC/DC will undertake a world tour in support of Rock or Bust in 2015. Stevie Young, nephew of founding members Angus and Malcolm Young, plays rhythm guitar on the album and will accompany the band on tour.

Latest I’m reading is that Malcolm has Dementia. If this is the case, do not look for him to ever return. Very sad indeed…

AC/DC’s MALCOLM YOUNG Reportedly Being Treated For Dementia
September 26, 2014

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young has dementia and is being treated in a nursing home in Sydney, Australia. The facility is believed to be Lulworth House in Elizabeth Bay, where Australian politician Neville Wran was housed until his death in April this year.
A Young family connection told the newspaper: “If you were in the room with [Malcolm Young] and walked out, then came back in one minute later, he wouldn’t remember who you are. He has a complete loss of short-term memory. His wife, Linda, has put him in full-time care.”
AC/DC’s former manager Michael Browning told AAP: “I have friends that are still involved, and they keep me posted, so I have known for a little while.
“I think [Young's illness] came on very suddenly.”
He added: “It’s shocking. It’s terrible. Sadly for AC/DC, they’re losing their creator, their mentor. He’s the genius behind the band.”
Young, 61, reportedly suffered a stroke last year and did not participate in the recording sessions for AC/DC’s new studio album, “Rock Or Bust”, an 11-song collection set to arrive on December 2. It has since been announced that Malcolm will not be returning to the group due to ill health. His replacement is Angus and Malcolm Young’s nephew Stevie Young. Stevie played on the new CD, which was recorded at the Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada with producer Brendan O’Brien and mixer Mike Fraser.
Stevie Young played with AC/DC once before during a 1988 tour, while Malcolm stepped out to deal with his dependency on alcohol.
Legend has it that Stevie resembled his uncle closely enough that many fans reportedly didn’t even know Malcolm had left the tour.
“We miss Malcolm, obviously,” AC/DC singer Brian Johnson told TeamRock Radio this past July. “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.
“Stevie, Malcolm’s nephew, was magnificent, but when you’re recording with this thing hanging over you and your work mate isn’t well, it’s difficult. But I’m sure he was rooting for us. 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.”
Just one day after it was announced that a new AC/DC song called “Play Ball” will be part of Turner Sports’ marketing campaign for the Major League Baseball post-season, a preview of the track can be heard on promos already appearing online. The full song is expected to be heard starting September 27.
Meanwhile, the band will film a music video for a yet-to-be-disclosed song from “Rock Or Bust” on October 4 in London, England. Fans can enter for a chance to appear in the clip by filling out the form at sweeps.acdc.com. Winners will be contacted by October 2.
“Rock Or Bust” is the first all-new AC/DC album since 2008′s “Black Ice”.
AC/DC will embark on a world tour to both promote “Rock Or Bust” and celebrate the band’s 40th anniversary, although details are yet to be confirmed
