AC/DC'S ANGUS YOUNG SAYS MALCOLM SHOWED DEMENTIA SIGNS FOR YEARS
AC/DC guitarist Angus Young says his brother Malcolm's dementia has been happening for some time. Young tells Rolling Stone Malcolm's lapses in memory and concentration surfaced before their last album, ``Black Ice,'' in 2008. He says Malcolm was already in treatment during the last AC/DC tour from 2008 to 2010.
Young says his brother was still capable of knowing what he wanted to do and he likes to finish what he starts. Malcolm Young is in full-time care in an undisclosed facility in Australia. He did not play on the new AC/DC album, ``Rock or Bust.''
ELVIS PRESLEY'S FIRST RECORDING WILL BE SOLD AT GRACELAND
Graceland will mark Elvis Presley's 80th birthday by auctioning off the first recording he ever made. The New York Times reports an acetate disc of Presley singing ``My Happiness''
backed with ``That's When Your Heartaches Begin'' will be sold at his estate in Memphis on January 8. Presley paid four-dollars to record it. Record Collector magazine once listed the disc's value at 500-thousand dollars. Only one copy exists and it's always been in the hands of private collectors. The official story is that Presley recorded it as a gift for his mother. Presley biographers question that because his family did not own a record player and suggest he did it to get the attention of Sun Records owner Sam Phillips.
NICO AND VINZ WORKED AT GETTING GOOD
Nico and Vinz believe their talent is not in their vocals, but in their persistence. Vincent ``Vinz'' Dery says they just wouldn't give up. He played some of their early songs for his girlfriend -- songs they made when they were about 15 years old.
He says she was laughing because they were so horrible. Dery says he used to sing low and almost monotone before he realized he should try to sing with range. Nicolas ``Nico'' Sereba jokes it only took them five years to figure that out.
