Co-founder and guitarist of AC/DC, Malcolm Young, died last night, aged 64, surrounded by family and friends.

Young had suffered dementia for the past three years, resulting in his leaving the band he’d founded with brother Angus in 1973.

In a statement earlier this morning, the band said, “It is with deep heartfelt sadness that AC/DC has to announce the passing of Malcolm Young”, with Angus adding: “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.”

Stories of Malcolm Young’s illness began to circulate in 2014, as AC/DC were about to embark on their 40th Anniversary tour, of which Young pulled out of, having moved back to Australia to be with family and friends who helped him cope with his illness.

The Young brothers had only just lost their older brother, George Young, guitarist with The Easybeats and long-time producer for AC/DC, in October 2017.  Antonino Tati
