It’s hard to know, kids. But maybe.
Reports coming out of Australia seem to conflict one another, but it seems that AC/DC has booked a recording studio in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, for six weeks from May 1.
That would suggest the band is still active.
Yet Australian radio station 3AW is claiming AC/DC could announce its retirement decision as soon as tomorrow.
Seems the retirement may hinge on Malcolm Young, who may not be feeling well these days.
You may recall that AC/DC were to play 40 shows this year as part of their 40th anniversary. They haven’t announced those shows yet.
Meanwhile, Mark Evans, who claims to be the son of original AC/DC singer Dave Evans, Tweeted before that reports of AC/DC’s imminent retirement are true.
“Malcolm Young is very sick…. [Malcolm’s son] Ross Young spoke to my father this morning because the cat got out…. But yes, the band will be finished…. No new shows or music.”
Then, Australian journalist Darryl Mason took to his blog, saying that “when AC/DC recently reunited in a rehearsal studio, Malcolm Young discovered he had forgotten how to play, due to a brain clot on his brain.”
And “AC/DC won’t continue playing and recording without Malcolm. It can’t be done.”
