AC/DC: Mal Is Happy
Angus Young says his older brother is getting the best of care as he is being treated for dementia.
Angus Young says whenever he sees his older brother Malcolm, Mal is happy. The 61-year old founder, rhythm guitarist and co-songwriter of AC/DC was diagnosed with dementia following the band’s 2008-2010 Black Ice tour.
“His family is all around him,” says Angus, who adds that he is “getting the best of care.” Malcolm reportedly is living in a nursing facility in Sydney, Australia. Angus will be seeing a lot of him soon as he’s heading to Australia for the next four months.
Malcolm has been replaced in AC/DC by his nephew, Stevie Young, who plays on the band’s new album, Rock or Bust. It comes out on December 2nd.
