AC/DC co-founder Malcolm Young dead at 64
Malcolm Young, the rhythm guitar player and founding member of heavy metal legends AC/DC, has died, the group announced Saturday. He was 64.
Known for the powerhouse riffs and rhythm guitar that propelled the group from Sydney, Australia, to superstardom, Young had been suffering from dementia for the past three years, the Australian Associated Press reported.
He died peacefully on Saturday with his family by his bedside, the news agency reported.
Young started the band with his brother Angus Young in 1973.
I haven't listened to the band since the 80s except the occasional song that comes up in 80s or hair band playlists but when I did I enjoyed them.
