Australian rock legends AC/DC have promised to record new music despite confirming that founding member Malcolm Young is suffering from a “debilitating illness.”
Lead singer Brian Johnson has assured fans that the band will write and record new material when they get together in Vancouver in May.
We’re going to pick up some guitars, have a plonk, and see if anybody has got any tunes or ideas.
“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,” Johnson told The Telegraph.
However, the singer suggested that the band’s future was still not set in stone.
“I wouldn’t like to say anything either way about the future. 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.”
The band’s planned 40th anniversary tour has been put on hold reportedly due to Young’s ill health.
AC/DC confirmed the news with a post on their official Facebook page yesterday saying “the band will continue to make music.”
