AC/DC's Brian Johnson Releases Message To Fans AC/DC singer Brian Johnson released a special message to the band's Swedish fan club members after they revealed that they will be raising money for Alzheimer and dementia research.

The band's cofounder Malcolm Young was forced to retire from the legendary group in 2014 due to his battle with dementia and the Swedish fans plan to raise money for research into a cure for the disorder during their ACDCmachine Gathering next Month.

Johnson, who himself was forced to step aside from the band last year after doctors warned him he faced permanent hearing loss if he continued to tour, released an audio message to the fans.

He said in part (via CBS Radio), "I just want to say I'm so proud of what you're doing for the Alzheimer/dementia research. As you know, We have a wounded soldier, Malcolm, and I think what you're doing to raise the awareness of everyone about this dreadful disease is just absolutely fabulous. I know Malcolm would be so proud of you, I am." Listen to his full message here.

Third Slipknot Member Undergoes Spinal Surgery Slipknot guitarist Mick Thomson revealed that he has become a member of the band's unofficial "cyborg club" after becoming the third member of the group to undergo spinal surgery.

Singer Corey Taylor and guitarist Jim Root have both had spinal surgeries. Thomson broke the news to fans on Tuesday via a post on his Instagram account where he shared photos of his spinal x-rays under the heading of "Beverly Hills Spine Surgery."

He captioned the photos, "I recently joined the cyborg club. Sore as f*** but hope to be back to mid 2000s banging by our next record cycle. Should probably just have every disc replaced all the way down to be safe. Dr. Perri and the entire staff were awesome." See the post here.
