Phil Collins Confirms Live Performance

(Classic Rock) Phil Collins has confirmed another stage appearance after ending his retirement in May. The former Genesis frontman and drummer will take part in a fundraising event for his Little Dreams Foundation on December 6 in Miami. It follows his short appearance with students at Miami Country Day School, where he led them through In The Air Tonight and Land Of Confusion. Collins' announcement will fuel speculation that he's planning a fully-fledged comeback. He retired after releasing a covers album in 2010, but last year admitted he wanted to go back into action. In June his bassist Lee Sklar revealed his boss had arranged three weeks of "exploratory rehearsals" although no further plans had been made.

AC/DC Author Says Malcolm Is Not Returning

(Classic Rock) The author of a book about AC/DC's Young brothers says mainman Malcolm won't return to the band due to his health problems. Jesse Fink insists fans who have been hoping the 61-year-old's absence was temporary will have to get used to the fact that it's permanent, and that his nephew Stevie, who appears on their upcoming album, is the man they'll see on the road in his place. The Aussie giants have remained tight-lipped about Young's condition in order to protect his privacy. The only official statement announced he'd be "taking a break" while his colleagues worked on the follow-up to 2008's Black Ice. No one has commented on speculation that he's suffered a stroke, has cancer or is fighting Alzheimer's disease. Fink also refuses to discuss specifics - but he tells WZLX: "I'm not expecting to see Malcolm return. The important thing is we all let Mal be and hope he can recover. We should all expect that Stevie is in the band now." He tells Ultimate Classic Rock: "Fans seem to think his illness is going to go away, and he's going to be on stage when they announce their tour. If what I've heard from numerous sources is true, I expect Stevie will be touring with the band, and not Malcolm. That's not a seditious viewpoint - it's realistic."
