AC/DC’s Malcolm Young is believed to be “suffering from dementia”.
The 61-year-old guitarist and founding member of the rock band – whose retirement was announced just last week – has reportedly been admitted to Lulworth House, a full-time care home in Sydney.
Malcolm’s wife, Linda, is believed to have made the decision to move him after the care he needed at home became too difficult.
A statement released by AC/DC’s labels, Albert Music and Sony, earlier this week con-firmed Malcolm’s departure from the band.
It read: “Unfortunately, due to the nature of Malcolm’s illness, he will not be rejoining the band.”
Meanwhile, the labels also confirmed that Malcolm’s nephew, Stevie Young, would re-place him as rhythm guitarist and that the rock band would be touring next year. – BANG!
