AC/DC’s Malcolm Young Reportedly Receiving Treatment for Dementia

0

AC/DC star Malcolm Young is reportedly receiving treatment for dementia after suffering a stroke last year.

The hitmakers announced in April that guitarist Young would be taking a break from the group to concentrate on his health, and on Wednesday, his bandmates revealed the ailing musician will not be returning to the line-up due to a mystery illness.

Now a report in the Sydney Morning Herald suggests he has has been admitted to the Lulworth House care facility in Sydney, Australia as his condition deteriorates.

A source tells the publication, “If you were in the room with (Young) and walked out, then came back in one minute later, he wouldn’t remember who you are. He has a complete loss of short-term memory. His wife, Linda, has put him in full-time care.”

AC/DC have yet to comment on the report.

They are preparing to release their new album, titled Rock Or Bust, in December. The project will be the first in the band’s history not to feature Young, whose brother Angus Young is AC/DC’s lead guitarist.

Rock Or Bust is AC/DC’s first album since 2008’s Black Ice.
