It has been two complete years since we lost the co-founder, songwriter, back vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the legendary hard rock band AC/DC. Malcolm, who was diagnosed with dementia in 2014, took his last breathe on the 18th of November, 2017 at Lulworth House in Elizabeth Bay (Australia) at the age of 64. The veteran musician was also diagnosed with lung cancer at the end of their Black Ice World Tour earlier in 2010. Since the illness was detected at an early stage, Malcolm was successfully treated but unfortunately could not win his battle with dementia . He also had some sort of heart problem and had a pace maker embedded in his heart. The 1954 born Australian musician (born in Scotland) was a part of AC/DC for 41 long years and is often regarded as one of the best rhythm guitarists in the world. His unique style of playing open chords with a relatively low volume and low gain is contrary to what most rock guitarists are used to – high gain driven power chords.
Although Malcolm Young is no longer physically with us his musical legacy will always live in our hearts forever.
