AC/DC Finish New Album; May Name It "Man Down"

by Paul Cashmere, Noise11

The 15th AC/DC album has been completed and Brian Johnson says they considered the title Man Down as a possible title as a tribute to Malcolm Young.

Young, the co-founder of the band with his brother Angus, left the band due to illness just prior to the start of the recording.

AC/DC recruited Stevie Young, the nephew of Angus and Malcolm, to fill in for Malcolm. Stevie performed once before in place of Malcolm while Malcolm was in rehab.

“Stevie, Malcolm’s nephew, was magnificent, but when you’re recording with this thing hanging over you and your work mate isn’t well, it’s difficult,” Brian said this week.

The AC/DC album is yet to be given a release date. Johnson has stated that the band will perform live before the end of the year.
