Former Kinks guitarist Dave Davies continues to offer words of encouragement to AC/DC’s Malcolm Young, following news that health issues have forced Young to take a break from the band. Last week, on his Facebook page, Davies implored the AC/DC guitarist to “never give up,” to continue exercising his hands and fingers and to “’image-play’ your best solos ever in your mind before you go to sleep—daily.” Davies, who himself suffered a stroke in 2004, has now issued a follow-up post suggesting the public should refrain from sending out “negative vibes.” “I have no idea exactly what physical state Malcolm Young is in …,” he writes, “but it really does not help by people taking a negative view …. Part of the healing process is convincing the brain and mind that it is capable of anything. I wish him well." AC/DC has thus far declined to reveal the nature of the health issue that’s affecting Young. The band is scheduled to begin recording a new studio album in May.
