Malcolm Young, guitarist and founding member of AC/DC, dies at 64

AC/DC Guitarist Malcolm Young is Dead at 64

His razor-sharp production cast the band's inherent melodicism into an even greater light, and the album was an worldwide hit that over the years has sold more than 7 million copies in the USA alone.

"Renowned for his musical prowess Malcolm was a songwriter, guitarist, performer, producer and visionary who inspired many". Young's family, which announced his death in a statement, noted that he had suffered from dementia for several years.

Known for the powerhouse riffs and rhythm guitar that propelled the Sydney group to superstardom, Young had been suffering from dementia for at least the past three years.

The group signed with Atlantic Records in 1976 - they played New York's punk mecca CBGB on their first USA tour - and their reputation grew quickly as albums followed in rapid succession: "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap", "Let There Be Rock", "Power Age".

Malcolm Young was born in Glasgow on 6 January 1953, emigrating with his family to Australia ten years later.

Anthony Mantha and Andreas Athanasiou each scored twice as the Detroit Red Wings routed the Calgary Flames 8-2 on Wednesday night. But following the game, officials assessed him with two additional 10-minute misconducts, bringing him to his 37 total minutes.

Young's fellow musicians, as well as rock n' roll fans, voiced their condolences Saturday on Twitter. It remains one of the top 10 best-sellers in RIAA history.

Some of the band's most popular songs include "Back in Black", "Thunderstruck", "Hells Bells", "You Shook me all Night Long" and "For Those About to Rock". "He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever". In its materials, the Hall of Fame called the band's music "scorched-earth, metallic hard rock which has rarely deviated from a template of headbanging-inducing guitar riffs, flashy drums and banshee-yell vocals". "Malcolm, along with Angus, was the founder and creator of AC/DC". Even so, Angus Young added, "He was still capable of knowing what he wanted to do", and Malcolm set out to relearn his own music for that last tour.

"He was a fantastic songwriter and he had a great work ethic too", Slash told Rolling Stone on Saturday. Malcolm Young, the guitarist, died at his home at the age of 64 years. From the beginning, he always knew what he wanted to accomplish, and with his younger brother, he has conquered the music scene by giving the best of himself at every concert. He took great pride in all that he endeavored.

"His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed", he wrote.
