AC/DC fans are thunderstruck today to learn Malcom Young (61 years old) appears to be very sick. One report says Malcolm had a stroke, which left a blood clot in his brain. If this is true, the outlook appears to be dire for the AC/DC guitarist. 

AC/DC, formed in November 1973 by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, are one of the highest-grossing bands of all time, selling more than 200 million albums in the past 40 years.

 

Singer Brian Johnson revealed work on a new album had been delayed due to a health issue with one member back in 2012.

Singer Brian Johnson told a Florida radio station the anniversary tour was on hold but they were hoping to record next month.

‘We’ve been denying anything, ‘cause we weren’t sure. One of our boys was pretty ill, so we didn’t like to say anything, and we’re very private about things like this, so we didn’t wanna say anything,’  the 66-year-old Johnson said in February.

‘And he’s a very proud man. But I think we’ll be going into the studio in May in Vancouver. Which means, we should be getting ready.

This week, reports surfaced again that Malcom was very ill and unable to perform. This has lead to wide speculation that the band would hang it up and retire.

Check back for more updates as we learn more.

Seattle police have released new photos of the suicide scene of grunge rocker Kurt Cobain. Warning: Some actually show the Nirvana frontman’s body. They are not strictly graphic in nature, but do tell a sad story. 

It was 20 years ago this week that Cobain killed himself at his home in Seattle. The singer’s body was found three days later by a utility worker. Seattle police Detective Mike Ciesynski explained to local television station KIRO that while there is no reason to believe Cobain’s death was anything but a suicide, authorities reviewed all of their files from the case — including developing and releasing some new photographs in addition to the ones already released. HEre are all of them.

American Horror Story Season 4 Teaser

American Horror Story

I’ve been eagerly awaiting news on American Horror Story season 4 ever since Coven ended. Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Frances Conroy will all be heading to the Freak Show.

What we know about freak show so far is that it will be set in Jupiter, Florida in the 1950s. Jessica Lange will be playing a German ex-pat who is managing one of the last freak shows in the U.S.

Let’s hope it’s better than Coven.

“Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski wasn’t about to let her co-host Joe Scarborough run wild Monday morning with conspiracy theories about the missing Malaysia jet. Instead she shuts him down and basically verbally deflowers his ego on live TV. Watch the exchange below:

Behind the scenes of one of the greatest moments in awards show history

Behind the Scenes in the TV truck
via 22Words: In 1996, Cuba Gooding, Jr. famously won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his work alongside Tom Cruise in Jerry Maguire. After announcing that he would definitely take more than his allotted time, he launched into an exuberant, heartfelt speech that included a backflip (unfortunately not shown on camera) and garnered a standing ovation.

What you didn’t see from the comfort of your couch was the furious whirlwind behind the scenes as the production crew ensured that one of the Oscars’ greatest moments was perfectly communicated on television…
