Then they ask that the privacy of Malcolm and his family be respected during this time and end the message saying that "the band will continue to make music."
Since Monday a number of disparate news about the future of AC / DC began to circulate. The most fatalistic said Malcolm had suffered a stroke that left him unable to play. They said that for years the group vowed it would separate when some of its members could not join the band for health reasons.
On the other hand, the story that the band would spend six weeks from May 1 in Vancouver to begin recording their new album, were also disclosed.
