AC/DC have helped amp me up on many days when I'd rather not have had to go to work. I've screamed my throat raw at their concerts twice. I've screamed my throat even more raw trying to do my best Brian Johnson at Karaoke. You lads have brought me much joy, excitement and gut pounding rock & roll since I first discovered the band 25 years ago at the age of 10. My thoughts are with Malcom and his family at this time, and I'll be hoping for a full and speedy recovery, not just for the music, and for all the other fans, but for all the fun you've let me have these last 25 years.

Hey I've been following AC/DC probably since the Back in Black album came out. Hang in there Malcolm. If you're well enough to tour by the time you finish the album and get some practice time for the tour, fine. If not, I'll just sit back and watch the other band members and give the nephew a chance. Long live rock and roll!!

get well soon we want you to play rock n`roll again

Yeah, Get well soon Malcolm, you are a legend, no-one can stand in your shoes, NO ONE !

Malcolm, I myself suffer from ill health due to a debilitating back injury, so I am on high doses of Oxycodone and Endone daily, about 120mg of Oxy and 20 mg of Endone. Take your time buddy, get well and then, if you are able, get back into it. You are the backbone of the band man! My thoughts and prayers are with you! Paul Jones - Australia
