Malcolm Young, AC/DC’s co-founder, rhythm guitarist, and driving force behind their legendary riffs, has died at age 64 after a battle with dementia.
While his younger brother and lead guitarist, Angus, is the band’s main onstage attraction, behind the scenes Malcolm was the band’s leader, and wrote most of the iconic riffs that propelled their sound for over 4 decades.
After dealing with the problem for years, Malcolm left the band in 2014 when the symptoms of dementia became too much to bear.
His music lives on through 16 AC/DC albums filled with his songs and rock-solid rhythm guitar work.
Rock in peace, Malcolm Young of AC/DC.
