AC/DC COMPLETES FIRST ALBUM WITHOUT MALCOLM YOUNG



AC/DC has completed work on its 16th studio album and its first without guitarist and co-founder Malcolm Young, who stepped down earlier this year due to an undisclosed illness and is currently hospitalized. Singer Brian Johnson told Classic Rock about the Vancouver recording sessions, " “It was brilliant over there. We’re done. I’m very excited and we’ve got some great songs.”

Johnson added, "We miss Malcolm obviously. He’s a fighter. He’s in hospital but he’s a fighter. We’ve got our fingers crossed that he’ll get strong again. Stevie (Young, guitarist), Malcolm’s nephew, was magnificent, but when you’re recording with this thing hanging over you and your work mate isn’t well, it’s difficult.

Johnson called Malcolm "such a strong man," saying, "I’m sure he was rooting for us . . . He’s a small guy but he’s very strong. He’s proud and he’s very private so we can’t say too much. But fingers crossed he’ll be back.”
Johnson said that he wanted to use Man Down as the title of the follow-up to 2008's Black Ice, explaining, "It’s a bit negative and it was probably just straight from the heart. I like that.”
There is no title yet for the disc, which is due out either by the end of this year or early in 2015. A world tour is likely to follow its release.
Johnson was interviewed in his hometown of Newcastle, where he was awarded a Doctorate in Music from the city’s Northumbria University.
