AC/DC co-founder and guitarist Malcolm Young dies age 64

Malcolm Young, who co-founded the Australian hard rock band AC/DC with his younger brother Angus, has died aged 64.

The guitarist, who was described as the "driving force" behind the band, had been living with dementia for several years. The band said that he died peacefully on Saturday with his family by his bedside.

Older brother George Young, the Easybeats guitarist and AC/DC's longtime producer, also died just a few weeks ago, in October, at the age of 70.

Surprised

And so soon after their older brother, songwriter and producer, George died only last month..

So many musicians, actors, artistes have died relatively 'young' these last couple of years..

R.I.P.  Malcolm Young.

Sad Sad Sad

The only good thing about Malcolm is that he didn’t suffer for years. Thanks for the music dude

And David Cassidy is in hospital with organ failure.

Slowly my childhood is slipping further away.
