Kinks guitarist Dave Davies has offered a message of support to AC/DC's Malcolm Young after it was announced that he was taking a break from the band due to ill health.
As HenneMusic reports, it has been rumored that Young suffered a stroke. Davis, who recovered from a stroke in 2004, has taken to Facebook to offer the guitarist tips on how to move forward and deal with the condition:
"Malcolm Young - never give up - and remember all the important 'tricks' you learnt and keep going over and over them in your mind, Always exercise your hands and fingers - picking coins from the floor- picking up pins from a flat surface - constantly touch the tips of your fingers with the thumb and try to do it faster and faster - image playing your best solos ever in your mind before you go to sleep-daily - Dave Davies."
While it was alleged that AC/DC might break up due to Malcolm's health issues, the band has subsequently stated that they will continue without the guitarist, who is "taking a break." AC/DC is set to enter the studio next month to begin work on their next studio album.
