I've used their classic song 'Back In Black' on a regular basis to welcome Belgrade Mayor Russ Nelson to the show on Thursday mornings -- that shortly after Mayor Nelson informed me the Belgrade budget was, well, 'back in the black.'

 

 

Now the Aussie rockers have made news (or DEFINITELY set the rumor mill on fire) with speculation the band is calling it quits on the cusp of their 40th Anniversary.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that founding member, Malcolm Young, 61, has returned to Australia with his family.

 

"He is believed to be unable to continue playing, although there has not been any explanation why," the Herald reports.'

 

Australian radio personality Peter Ford reportedly said “we may not hear them perform or record ever again.”

AC/DC was formed by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young in 1973. Their hits included "Highway to Hell," "Back in Black," and "For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)."

While I don't listen to them all that regularly, when you NEED to hear AC/DC, NOTHING ELSE WILL DO. Should the rumors prove true, speedy recovery Malcolm...
