He has suffered from dementia for a while, and has not been in good physical health either. I was just reading the other day how he had been only really only been able to do limited studio work for a while.

Although not one of my favorite bands, I’m an Iron Maiden, Judas Priest kind of guy, but there is no doubt the HUGE impact AC⚡️DC has had on the world of rock and the huge influences they’ve had on many young and old inspiring musicians world wide.

Malcom made being a rhythm guitarist cool, a dying art.

May he Rest In Peace

Malcom Young “We Salute You!”

Sad day for all fans. So soon after his older brother George as well. Terrible for the family and such a young age for a dementia related death.

Tightest rhythm guitarist of them all and it's a dying art, so few good ones left. Rudi Schenker springs to mind as another great one but he's almost 70 now!

Off to listen to Highway to Hell very loud!

Very sad to hear this, as Gus says Malc really was an excellent rhythm guitarist and that's not lip service because he has passed on now, he was amazing and helped keep the band rocking on whilst Angus went through his stage antics, sometimes I'd just focus on him, really really tight rocking rhythm playing.

Seen AC/DC live three times and last time in 2015 we knew Malcolm was not well enough to perform, but never thought for a moment he would pass away so soon.

The Young's are originally from Glasgow and their father served in the RAF the same as mine, so a close affinity there for me as a Scotsman.

RIP Malc.

Those chugging rhythms will be sorely missed. He'd apparently been struggling since the Black Ice Tour where he was having to relearn the songs each night!
