It says break, but it's worded like he's gone for good. Damn, hope he gets through his ordeal.

IIRC, he had a stroke, so it's likely that he doesn't have the motor function to play guitar anymore.

Brutal. Angus and him are the co reasons why I've been playing guitar for 9 and a half years and find myself on this site today ultimately. Hope he recovers.

I was a big AC/DC fan growing up, but I never got around to seeing them. I really regret that now.

Malcolm and Angus are the main songwriters, so it will be interesting to see how their new music will sound with one half of them gone.

I didn't know that. That's really sad.

Sad yet inevitable news after the speculation the other week. Best wishes to Malcolm.
