AC/DC’s Malcolm Young Has Died (1953-2017)

We’re saddened today to learn of the passing of the great Malcolm Young, the brother of Angus and co-founder of the legendary Australian band AC/DC. Back in 2014, the rhythm guitarist stepped down from his role in the band due to health concerns. He was in the early stages of dementia and after several months of speculation on his return or not, the management announced he had retired from the band. Sadly, the effects of Alzheimer’s would end up being the cause of his demise at 64 years of age. Malcolm’s passing leaves only Angus as the remaining original member of the band at this point in history. I’ve been a fan of the band since the “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap” album, but only ever saw them in concert once and that was during a business trip when I learned they were playing in the same town I was staying. I loved their music and always am sad when one of the founding icons leaves us. Alzheimer’s is no joke in terms of what it does to you and there doesn’t seem to be any sort of cure or means to stem it off. A shame. To learn more about the musicians life you can hit his official Wikipedia entry since it’s all there. We wish his family, band mates and worldwide fans the deepest of condolences during this time. Rest in Peace Mr. Young and thanks so very much for sending us down the highway to hell and to be flies on the wall of every dirty deed being done dirt cheap. We salute you 🙂
