Rock band AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young in full-time care for dementia?

He retired from Australian hard rock band AC/DC earlier this week.

But is guitarist and song writer Malcolm Young suffering from dementia? He reportedly moved into full-time care in a Sydney nursing home facility that's known to specialise in looking after those with the disease.

Media reports have speculated that he is currently being treated there.

A source close to Young said: "If you were in the room with Young and walked out then come back in one minute later, he wouldn't remember who you are. He has a complete loss of short term memory. His wife Linda has put him in full-time care."

AC/DC has sold more than 200 million albums and is one of the first Australian acts to break into the American market.
