Former AC/DC Star Chris Slade Sings Malcolm's Praises
The Aussie giants this month reported that mainman Young was "taking a break" from the band as a result of an unconfirmed problem - but his colleagues intended to start studio work on a prospective new album in May.
Slade, who spent five years with AC/DC from 1989, tells Rhythm: "It's terrible to hear about Malcolm. I knew he was ill. He's been ill for a long time, but I think it's come to a head by the sounds of things.
"I've spoken to other guitarists about this - he must be the greatest rhythm guitarist ever born," he said. "Even Angus says he's a better guitarist. He makes the drummer's job so easy; he's a metronome." more on this story
