AC/DC Nephew May Step In For Malcolm Young

The nephew of AC/DC's Angus and Malcolm Young might be taking the spot of his uncle Malcolm for the band's next album.

Stevie Young is rumored to have been brought in to play rhythm guitar during the band's studio sessions for their 16th studio album. Young had previously stepped in for his uncle in 1988, when Malcolm left the tour to address alcohol addiction.

A photo was posted to Twitter of Stevie with the band in Vancouver where they are undergoing preparations for recording with producer Brendan O'Brien. The photo was later removed, but not before several fans commented to welcome Stevie to the band.

Malcolm Young left the band last month to deal with an undisclosed illness, which several news sources report may have been a stroke.
