A lucky encounter to Eric Mackinnon at the island of Harris, Scotland, last weekend. In fact, the reporter met Mr. Malcolm Young Ross with his wife and son in tow, visiting relatives. Discussing about the future of the band, rhythm guitarist has confirmed that the successor is in the works of Black Ice, although the latter are still in an embryonic state. "Do you know what kind it is, Brian, is a talker and takes things lightly," - said affectionately referring to recent statements about the singer's new material for the next year - "It will take a little longer, I think a year or two" . Again: "I'm jamming on some ideas but it is something I do every time, like the rest of the band after all. However, we are at work. We had a long break between Stiff Upper Lip (2000) and Black Ice (2008), so I think we need another couple of years to work a bit on ". Malcolm also spoke about a possible tour next album, but definitely smaller than the Black Ice Tour, which lasted 2 years. The guitarist was also at the center of a funny incident during the visit of Sandi Maciver, a cousin of his wife Linda, a well-known local musician. He reported: "We had dinner in the motel with Malcolm and his family. A friend of my aunt came in and joined us. Malcolm looked at him then whispered, 'It's the one in the band? '- "Then I saw him and said aloud,' Oh - you are Sandie Maciver '" - "Poor Malcolm Young ... recognized me in front of him! It could only happen to Harris. "
