    Being in an AC/DC tribute band for 13 years I got to play 2 1/2 hours of non-stop balls out rock. And grew to appreciate them more than I could imagine. Another sad end of a rock icon

    Sad, but probably a relief to the family at this point.

    R.I.P. Malcolm

    Definatly one of the all time great guitarists who, with his brother, did so much for rock music.

    Sad day :sadwave:

    He WAS the driving force behind the sound of AC/DC. What a frickin' shame. At least he's at peace now.
    Music has lost too many greats that can never be replaced.

    RIP, Malcolm.

    AC/DC's engine has stopped running.

    One of Rock's most underappreciated icons.

    My top guitar hero, for sure. I understand he was in bad shape, but this is still sad. It’s a long way to the top, but Mal made it.

    RIP legend.

    One of the best rock guitarists of all time. Incredible rhythm player and the engine of AC/DC. Very sad news.

    When I was younger I was into punk and closed minded about other music. There were a few rock n roll bands I liked, ACDC was one of them.
