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.

The writing has been on the wall for quite some time for Malcolm. It was only a matter of time.

RIP, legend  :'(

The band in their pomp, as I first knew them. Pure filth class.

Oh, and that second item, Bad Boy Boogie. That was my youth, summed up in one video (apart from the trans stuff, of course)

Well that's spooky... I've got my entire AC/DC collection playing on shuffle, and just as I'm reading Steph's post, Bad Boy Boogie starts playing.  :o

Some of you know that I worked for them on three full world tours. Highway to Hell, Back in Black and For Those About to Rock.  Obv, I got to know him. Lovely genuine bloke.
It was expected, but I'm gutted.

I'm thunderstruck.

I did think of you, Basil, when I heard the news. 

Dementia is a horrible disease, and, as bobb said, it was only a matter of time.

Say hi to Bon, Malcolm, on your Highway to Hell... :'(
Getting there...
