Former AC/DC Star Chris Slade Sings Malcolm's Praises

(Classic Rock) Former AC/DC drummer Chris Slade has reacted to news of Malcolm Young's health issues by hailing him as the "greatest rhythm guitarist ever born."

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
