Australski gitarist i jedan od osnivača planetarno poznatog rock benda AC/DC preminuo je u svojoj 64. godini. Vijest je na službenoj stranici benda upravo objavio njegov brat Angus Young:
Today it is with deep heartfelt sadness that AC/DC has to announce the passing of Malcolm Young.
Malcolm, along with Angus, was the founder and creator of AC/DC.
With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band.
As a guitarist, songwriter and visionary he was a perfectionist and a unique man.
He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted.
He took great pride in all that he endeavored.
His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed.
As his brother it is hard to express in words what he has meant to me during my life, the bond we had was unique and very special.
He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever.
Malcolm, job well done.
Podsjetimo, Malcolm je bolovao od demencije zbog čega ga je na posljednjoj turneji u sklopu promocije albuma Rock or Bust (2014.) zamijenio nećak Steve.
