Angus Young has spoken about the retirement of his brother Malcolm Young from the group they co-founded, AC/DC, in the new issue of Uncut, dated January 2015 and out now.

Malcolm Young is no longer with the band, who release new album Rock Or Bust on December 1, after being diagnosed with dementia.

“Rock Or Bust is a thing we’ve always done,” Young says. “When we play live, it’s always been a do or die effort. And everything we’ve ever done has always had that approach.

“[Malcolm] said, I wanna do this as long as I can keep doing it. He’s got a do or die spirit – it’s the strength of his character. It is a big thing that he’s not there.”

The new issue of Uncut is out now.
