This will also mark the very first studio album from AC/DC not to feature Malcolm. Replacing Malcolm will be his and Angus' nephew Stevie Young, who has filled in for Malcolm in the past on the Blow Up Your Video tour in 1988. Stevie will also play rhythm guitar on the new album.
Even though AC/DC have announced that there would be a 40th anniversary tour this year with 40 shows, we have yet to see any tour announcements from the band, but they have announced that they will tour extensively in 2015 in support of Rock Or Bust. AC/DC was one of the earliest rock bands that my dad got me into when I was younger, but I haven't seem them live yet. I really hope to see them once before they stop.
Most importantly: Get well Malcolm. Even though he's not coming back, we just hope that he gets well soon.

Well, there's some good news and bad news for AC/DC fans. Bad news is that the band have announced that due to Malcolm Young's serious condition, he will not be returning to the band in any capacity, leaving Angus as the only original member now. While this is sad news indeed and we certainly send our best wishes to Malcolm, the bright side is that AC/DC have announced that they will be releasing their long-awaited and much anticipated new studio album titled Rock Or Bust on December 2nd, and the first single entitled "Play Ball" will debut this weekend. I'm really excited to hear it.
