    AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young has been suffering from a mystery illness for quite some time now and he had to sit out the recording of Rock or Bust, the band's new album. He will not be returning to the band for tour and it is being reported that he is suffering from dementia.

    Reports suggest that Young has been admitted to a care facility in Sydney, Australia to receive proper care as he condition accelerates.

    A source said, "If you were in the room 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."

    How sad. He is a rock legend and we send him the best. We are keeping him in our thoughts and prayers.
