    ''It is with deepest sorrow that we inform you of the death of Malcolm Young, beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother. Malcolm had been suffering from Dementia for several years and passed away peacefully with his family by his bedside.

    Renowned for his musical prowess Malcolm was a songwriter, guitarist, performer, producer and visionary who inspired many. From the outset, he knew what he wanted to achieve and, along with his younger brother, took to the world stage giving their all at every show. Nothing less would do for their fans.

    Malcolm is survived by his loving wife O'Linda, children Cara and Ross, son-in-law Josh, three grandchildren, sister and brother.

    While thanking all for their overwhelming support and heartfelt condolences, the family ask that you respect their privacy during this time of heartbreak and grief.

    For those wishing to send messages to the family please visit the Sydney Morning Herald Malcolm Young Memorial website which will be available next week.

    The family have asked instead of flowers to send donations to The Salvation Army.''

    "Hundreds of fans immediately started writing their messages of condolence on the Facebook page, expressing their sadness that the talented 64-year-old guitarist was dead. And as usual, Twittersphere was frenzied over the death hoax.

    Where as some trusting fans believed the post, others were immediately skeptical of the report, perhaps learning their lesson from the huge amount of fake death reports emerging about celebrities over recent months. Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major Australian network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of a guitarist of Malcolm Young's stature would be major news across networks.

    A recent poll conducted for the Celebrity Post shows that a large majority (70%) of respondents think those Malcolm Young death rumors are not funny anymore."

    I'm going to walk the dog, maybe the confusion will be resolved soon. If he's not dead then he is very ill. If he is, RIP to a great talent.

    It's on Aus News and on the band's websites, no confusion at all.
