AC/DC Breaking Up?

04/15/2014
.
There are rumors swirling around the demise of AC/DC after an anonymous source tipped an Australian radio station that Malcolm Young is "very very ill" and the band may never perform again.

While anonymous sources can easily be dismissed, Australian entertainment commentator Peter Ford told the radio station 3AW that he heard about the rumor on Perth radio station 6PR and he "followed it up from there. And indeed, the story does seem to stand up.

"My information is that Malcolm Young, one of the founding members of the group, has in recent times returned to Australia to live with his family and for his own personal reasons, he may not want to continue to perform with the band."

He then explains why this may mean the end of the legendary group, "The boys have a pact that they will not get anybody else into the group. Nobody will be replaced and when somebody leaves, the group ends.

"Now like last year, they did announce that they would be doing a 40th anniversary tour and performing 40 concerts around the world. But since that announcement, there has been nothing that has been set in concrete.... the suggestion being put to me is that tour will never happen and we will never see AC/DC perform again or record again."

Ford also took to his Twitter account to answer a fan question and said, "there is a sad story behind all this that I have chosen not to report ...boys played together privately a few weeks back."

The Sydney Morning Herald has published a report with material from the email that sparked these rumors as well as a stream of Ford's entire comments on the radio program. Check it out here.
