AC/DC Not Retiring Despite Unnamed Member's "Debilitating Illness"

FUSE TV - AC/DC Not Retiring Despite Unnamed Member's "Debilitating Illness"

Contrary to retirement reports that surfaced Monday, AC/DC aren't going anywhere soon.

In an interview with English publication the Telegraph, frontman Brian Johnson denied disbandment rumors and instead announced that the band will hopefully start writing a new album.

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

Johnson also confirmed that an unnamed member of the band—thought to be guitarist Malcolm Young—is ill.

"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 singer said. "He is very proud and private, a wonderful chap. We've been pals for 35 years and I look up to him very much."
