It was rumored that AC/DC would never tour or record again because of health issues with guitarist Malcom Young. Now the band is going to record. Without him. "AC/DC have begun studio work in Canada on a prospective new album – without mainman Malcolm Young.It was confirmed last month he'd be "taking a break" from the Aussie giants after suffering health issues, which are rumored to be serious.A fan site confirmed that several long-term roadies had arrived with band equipment, and that producer Brendan O'Brien is behind the desk. He previously worked with them on 2008's Black Ice and has also produced Aerosmith, Bruce Springsteen, Mastodon, Killswitch Engage and many others.Vocalist Brian Johnson recently said AC/DC had been planning to perform 40 shows to mark their 40th anniversary – but the move is in doubt after the announcement regarding Young."

AC/DC without Malcom Young is not AC/DC. Just sayin.
