Rather sad to see it confirmed about Malcolm Young having dementia. Having experienced 2 family members go through this horrible disease - its brutal!

Heard last weekend on the radio that he had been moved to a long term care facility and figured it might be Alzheimer's or something similar...sad news.

Gotta be hard on everyone, esp since they are in the midst of releasing a new album and tour.

That's pretty bad news for everyone involved. Dementia is just awful.

Misdiagnosed head banging induced brain trauma. Not really, I made that up. Dementia is shitty.
