Brian Johnson says the new AC/DC album is finished.

According to, Brian is very excited about the new record and says they've got some great songs, and with a nod toward Malcolm Young's health troubles, he has a title for the album in mind.

"I wanted to call the album 'Man Down'. But it's a bit negative and it was probably just straight from the heart. I like that."

In April, AC/DC confirmed rumors that Malcolm was stepping down due to an undisclosed illness, which some news outlets reported was a stroke.

The group has since brought in Stevie Young, the nephew of guitarists Angus and Malcolm Young, to take Malcolm's place in the band for the recording sessions for the album.

Brian states:

"We miss Malcolm, obviously...he's a fighter. He's in hospital, but he's a fighter. We've got our fingers crossed that he'll get strong again.

By the way, happy birthday to Bon Scott in Rock & Roll Heaven...he was born on July 9, 1946 (died at age 33 on February 19, 1980).
