Earlier, AC/DC's management confirmed that Malcolm Young had left the band, due to a serious illness.
"Malcolm is suffering from dementia and the family thanks you for respecting their privacy," Malcolm's family told New York's People magazine.
While a statement on the band's official website read: "Unfortunately, due to the nature of Malcolm's condition, he will not be returning to the band."
The news comes off the back of AC/DC announcing their brand new album Rock or Bust is out on December 2. And a world tour in support of the album is to follow.
Malcom Young's nephew Stevie Young (pictured above) played on the album and will tour with the band in Malcolm's place.
