AC/DC are possibly Australia’s greatest export to the world of rock music and are certainly among the most rock definitive acts to have ever gotten on stage. Their 41-year-old career is looking to come to a close with reports suggesting that founding member and guitarist Malcolm Young is battling debilitating illness following a recent stroke. News broke out on Tuesday when a friend close to the band said that AC/DC, honouring a three-decade-old pact, would not tour or write any more music, since Malcolm would no longer be in a condition to do so.
One person who is particularly saddened by this development is actor Saif Ali Khan. “This is really sad. But I suppose things should end. They really had some life. Two actually. After vocalist (Bon) Scott died, they managed to find (Brian) Johnson to take his place and it was then that they put out one of their most amazing albums Back in Black,” Saif said, who maintains that AC/DC are his favourite band.
