The latest update on AC/DC from singer Brian Johnson….
Brian Johnson has spoken out on recent stories suggesting the hard-rocking group is about to split up because of health issues with one of its members. On the contrary, Johnson says the band is still planning on working on a potential album in Canada next month.
“We are definitely getting together in May in Vancouver,” he tells 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.”
In the same interview, Johnson confirms that one member of the group – believed to be rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, who co-founded AC/DC with younger brother and lead guitarist Angus Young way back in 1973 – has had some health issues.
“I wouldn’t like to say anything either way about the future,” the 66-year-old Johnson says. “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.”
