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."

Jon Bon Jovi Addresses Buffalo Bills Controversy

Bon Jovi frontman Jon Bon Jovi has publicly addressed the controversy surrounding the speculation that a Toronto-based investment group that he is a part of plans to move the Buffalo Bills if they purchase the NFL team. Rumors have been swirling that Bon Jovi's investment group planned to move the Buffalo Bills to Toronto. The team is for sale following the death the Buffalo Bills founder and owner Ralph Wilson. But Bon Jovi reassures fans that there are no plans to move the team. Bon Jovi wrote a letter for the Buffalo News addressing the rumors. He writes, "Recently, there has been a lot of speculation about the future of the Buffalo Bills and questions surrounding the ownership group of which I am a part. Until now, we have not said anything publicly out of respect for Mr. Wilson, his family and the process they are undertaking to identify the right group to carry the franchise forward. "However, there has been a lot of conjecture, so we think it's important to clarify our intentions to the fans of the team and people of Buffalo. Our objective is simple: to carry on the legacy of Ralph Wilson and make the Bills successful in Buffalo. "We are committed to working with the State, City, County and business community to identify the best possible site in the Buffalo area for a new stadium and to then develop and implement a plan to finance and build a state-of-the-art NFL stadium for the loyal Bills fans. "Being part of the NFL is something I have been working toward for a long time. Ten years ago, I started by taking an expansion Arena Football team, the Philadelphia Soul, from its inception to winning a championship in five years. I wanted to learn what it takes to build a successful football organization. I was involved in every aspect of that team from its beginning and I lived for and loved every moment. "My family and I are prepared to make this life-changing commitment to be part of the Bills. This is not a hobby or an acquisition. Building a winner on and off the field will be job one and I intend to spend as much time on the ground in Buffalo as needed to accomplish that goal. "I know how much the Bills mean to the people of this region. So I want you to hear this from me: I'm not risking it all to let you down. If we are given the chance to be the next owners of the Buffalo Bills, I promise you that we will bring the same passion that you do every Sunday, every day."
