AC/DC Guitarist Malcolm Young Dies at 64

AC/DC founding member Malcolm Young dead at 64

"With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band", a statement from AC/DC read.

Young founded the Australian rock band with his brother Angus in 1973 and was with a member until retiring in 2014 due to health reasons, except for a brief absence in 1988.

"So sad to learn of the passing of yet another friend, Malcolm Young", Ozzy Osbourne tweeted. In another publication, Angus Young also wanted to express a tribute to this " perfectionist", " this unique man ".

Their other brother George Young, a member of The Easybeats and a producer for AC/DC, died in October aged 70. His family confirmed in a statement that Young had died and added that he had been suffering from dementia for several years.

The post continues, "He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted". He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever. The musician, 64-year-old died "peacefully" at his home, surrounded by his loved ones.

The band's most recent Rock or Bust tour grossed $180 million from 54 concerts and was the third highest-selling tour of 2015, only behind One Direction and Taylor Swift. Rolling Stone said at the time, he was having cognitive problems but chose to continue to perform during the tour, which he had to oftentimes relearn guitar parts that he had written.

In an interview with the ABC's 7.30, AC/DC lead singer Brian Johnson said Young had told the band to "keep making music". Their hits included "Highway to Hell" from 1979 and "Back in Black" and "You Shook Me All Night Long" from 1980.

"Malcolm Young was my friend and the heart and soul of AC/DC".

It was odd for him, Angus told Rolling Stone, "but he was always a confident guy, and we made it work".

For those wishing to send messages to the family please visit the Sydney Morning Herald Malcolm Young Memorial website which will be available next week.

Young is survived by his wife O'Linda, children Cara and Ross, three grandchildren, a sister and a brother, the band said.
