Today it is with deep heartfelt sadness that AC/DC has to announce the passing of Malcolm Young.

Very sobering end to a brilliant career. I remember reading an interview with Angus Young published many years ago. In that piece, he said of Malcolm (I'm paraphrasing) "I'd put his right hand up there with Keith Richard's." It remains a great tribute.

darn. Admittedly, I had said in the past that I thought it was time for them to call it a day when they started touring with Axl Rose, but I didn't want it to happen like this.

Blasting "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" today. One of the most important albums to teenage Cynical.

AC/DC tunes were the 1st ones I learned. Pretty easy to learn and always fun & catchy.
I think I saw them more than any other band. Really great shows.
I'm sad that he's gone, but thankful that he was here.

One of my big life regrets is never getting to see AC/DC live, either with Bon or Brian. Missed Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, too. But going, at last, to see ZZ Top just after Christmas!

RIP, Malcolm. Ride on.

Awe man I had no idea what was going on. A sad sad day indeed, R.I.P. Malcom. AC/DC was my first live show ever. Malcom will allways be one of the greats.

AC/DC was my first concert and they are the reason I became a musician. Malcolm was the greatest rhythm guitarist of all time IMO. RIP
