AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd is adamant the band will “never retire” despite Malcolm Young’s serious health woes.

Young is currently taking a hiatus from the band while he battles undisclosed medical issues, and his nephew Stevie has stepped in to replace him as the group prepares to launch a new album and a 40th anniversary tour.

News of Young’s troubles prompted a slew of retirement rumors, but drummer Rudd is adamant the show will go on for as long as possible.

He says, “We were never going to retire. It’ll never happen. Angus (guitarist Angus Young) will never retire and as long as Angus never retires I won’t … retire either.”

Rudd adds of the “Back In Black” hitmakers’ tour plans, “There is an AC/DC tour planned for the 40th anniversary of the band, but I don’t know all the details yet… Everything’s great in the band, we’re ready to fire up on all cylinders again.”
