Rumors Young Had a Stroke, AC/DC Visited Springfield in '79, and Moving On


Rumors Young had a stroke

 

Throw out any notion that AC/DC was gonna take to the studio and a possible world tour. Word is that Malcolm Young had a stroke … and that’s why he’s back with his family in Australia. The story, being reported by an Australian journalist, is that the band got together earlier this month to rehearse, but Malcolm couldn’t play like he used to. But these are still just rumors and nothing has been confirmed. It’s also been put out there that the band has a pact that they wouldn’t continue without all the members. But again, all of this could be just second hand rumors because the band’s management refuses to confirm anything. Earlier reports indicated the band wanted to record a new album to celebrate their 40 year anniversary and coincide that with a 40 city world tour. Again, time will tell what’s for real and what’s rumor. Either way, if Malcolm is seriously ill, we wish the best for him and his family.

 

AC/DC visited Springfield in ‘79

 

All the back and forth and uncertainty of what will happen with AC/DC brings back memories shared on a blog out of St. Louis about AC/DC’s 1979 album Highway To Hell getting an advanced preview in Springfield back in the day. A blog post to the fan site ümlaut a couple of years back goes into how a couple of friends from the St. Louis area made the journey to Springfield to see UFO with AC/DC opening up. The band, fronted by Bon Scott before his death, hooked up with the friends and even gave them backstage passes. Plus there are a ton of great vintage pictures of AC/DC’s tour bus and even the party after the show at the Bel Aire motel. A great read for any fan of rock and roll! Check it out!

 

Moving on

 

They’re moving on! The remaining members of As I Lay Dying are done with that band and are revealing the new project Wovenwar. Shane Blay joins the members As I Lay Dying to form Wovenwar and they’ve already scheduled a release date of April 21st for their debut single “All Rise.” As I Lay dying is still technically active, but singer Tim Lambesis pleaded guilty to murder for hire charges and is gonna be sentenced sometime this summer.
