AC/DC’s co-founder and creator Malcolm Young has died aged 64.
The legendary guitarist passed away surrounded by family – following a long battle with dementia.
Born 6 January 1953 in Glasgow Scotland before emigrating with his family to Australia in 1963 – Young was best known for being the driving force behind the band he co-founded with his younger brother Angus in 1973.
He wrote the band’s material and came up with many of their biggest and best guitar riffs.
AC/DC would go on to become one of the biggest rock bands in history – racking up hits including ‘Back In Black’ ‘Highway to Hell’ ‘You Shook Me All Night Long’ and many more.
