According to Australian media, about 3 weeks ago, Malcolm suffered a stroke that left him a blood clot in his brain. When went to the pre-sessions for the recording of new material, the musician realized he did not remember how to play the guitar.
Nothing was officially confirmed yet, but friends and family members talked about what happened to Malcolm for the last couple of weeks. The blood clot is believed to be the reason Malcolm could not continue working.
Malcolm Young is not the most visible face of the band, but was a hidden leader. Almost every band classics were written in collaboration with his brother Angus.
