Inevitable, but still saddening. RIP Malcom.
RIP Mal, you rock!
Malcolm Young was a GOD
I will miss him greatly
The heart and soul of AC/DC. RIP Malcolm you are missed.
A sad day. R.I.P. Mal
The best of the best!
Sad news, Rest In Peace. He was such a huge part of AC/DC's bombastic guitar sounds.
Wow how did i miss this? RIP Malcom. Greatest heavy rhythmyster ever! His riffs will live on forever
RIP Malcolm & thanks for the Music.
Here’s hoping they find better treatment & a cure for this insidious disease.
My favorite rhythm guitarist of all time. Be at peace good Sir
Peace be with you Mal.
Malcolm held down the fort while Phil was a human metronome, Angus was a beast and Cliff kept the low end tight. Hard driving rock at it's finest.
I watch the full concert Live at River Plate about once every couple weeks along with a slew of other ACDC videos.
...just don't know what to say,so,peace.
edit: 2017 just sucks so many musicians lost...
At peace now mate, truely legendary ,won't be forgotten . Saw them before anybody had even heard about them,they were just a bunch of teenagers ,at a place called Tomcats in Sorrento Vic. I was pretty young myself but we knew we had witnessed something special that night and it has stayed with me since then. RIP Malcolm .
Hardly a surprise but he was still the guy behind the biggest rock and roll band ever.
That's what he wanted, that's what he got.
Saw AC/DC on their first tour of the U.K. in 1977, at Skindles Motel in Maidenhead U.K.
Jenny Darren supported and there were probably only around a hundred to a hundred and fifty people in the audience.
I shook Bon's hand and smacked Angus on his ass as Bon carried him through the crowd on his shoulders (in the days before radio mic's!!!).
Saw them support The Who at Wembley and many other times.
Have all their albums on vynyl and CD (best on vinyl but CD's play in the car).
Seeing that first gig had a profound affect upon the rest of my life.
My ring tone is the intro to "It's a Long Way To The Top...".
I has a big sad.
"HEY MAMA, LOOK AT ME!
I'M ON MY WAY TO THE PROMISED LAND."
Sad news. Thanks for everything Malcolm.
Very sad to learn of this.
I recall reading that Angus once praised his older brother's playing, saying, "When it comes to the guitar, he can do anything I can do-- but I can't do anything he can do." Hell of a thing to hear, coming from somebody like Angus Young.
He actually made it for quite a while, for somebody suffering from dementia. The median survival span for that particular disease is a little less than 500 days... Malcolm made it about twice that long.
For you Mal, RIP.
Bon & Mal together, enjoy.
I can't even begin to imagine how many times I'd bobbed my head nodding along to the strong driving rhythms of AC/DC. They've been around my entire life and I don't think I've ever changed the station or skipped a song on them. They are one of the greatest live performances I've ever seen. I hesitate to even say "one of" because seeing AC/DC live is that epic.
He was certainly the driving force of AC/DC. I remember an interview with Angus from Razor's edge era when he said Malcolm was the guy he turned to when he was struggling to find his sound....and a few minutes later it would be there again.
The same interview spoke of the hugely extended drinking jag Mal got up to.....supposedly 16+ years of daily drunkenness. Kind of unsurprising that his body was unable to fend off the disease for long.
