AC/DC-Mitgründer Malcolm Young gestorben

Der Rhythmus-Gitarrist und Bruder von Angus Young verließ die Band bereits 2014 nach 14 Jahren wegen einer Demenzerkrankung. Er starb nach Angaben der Band im Alter von 64 Jahren in Australien. Der gebürtige Schotte hinterlässt Ehefrau Linda und zwei Kinder.
Auf ihrer Facebook-Seite lässt die Band verlautbaren:

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.

Rest in Peace, Malcolm.
