The “driving force” behind rock band AC/DC, Malcolm Young, has died, aged 64.

Implacable, immutable, irreplaceable: why Malcolm Young was a rock’n’roll great Read more Young devised many of the band’s best-known guitar riffs, marking out tracks such as Back in Black, Highway to Hell and You Shook Me All Night Long and establishing them as one of the biggest rock acts of all time.

Three years ago the band announced that Young needed to step down to receive treatment for dementia. Shortly afterwards he retired permanently, to be replaced by one of his nephews, Stevie, for the band’s most recent tour.

From their first release in 1975, High Voltage, two years after the formation of the band, up until their final album, Rock or Bust, Young and his younger brother, Angus, were credited as co-writers on all AC/DC tracks.

Leading reaction to the news of the death on Twitter was Damon Johnson of the band Black Riders, who wrote:

A Rolling Stone tribute said: “As rhythm guitarist for the legendary rock band, Malcolm Young served as an indispensable foil to Angus Young’s arena- stuffing riffs.”

Young was born in Glasgow in 1953, but his family emigrated to Sydney, Australia, 10 years later.

Young’s elder brother George found fame first with his band the Easybeats, before going on to produce for AC/DC. He died last month, aged 70.

AC/DC – 10 of the best Read more Malcolm Young last performed live with AC/DC on tour in June 2010 at a concert in Bilbao, Spain.

An official statement was posted on the band’s website confirming his death.

“It is with deep heartfelt sadness that AC/DC has to announce the passing of Malcolm Young,” it read. “Malcolm, along with Angus, was the founder and creator of AC/DC. With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band.”

Young’s nephew Stevie, the son of his brother Stephen, stood in for Malcolm during a period of illness for the band’s Blow Up Your Video world tour in 1988.

AC/DC’s eighth studio album, Back in Black, was released in 1980 and sold 50m copies, making it one of the world’s highest-selling albums.

The group’s ninth album, For Those About to Rock We Salute You, was released in 1981 and was their first to reach No 1 in the US.

Young was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with the rest of the band in 2003.

“Malcolm is survived by his loving wife O’Linda, children Cara and Ross, son-in-law Josh, three grandchildren, sister and brother,” said the statement on the band’s website. https://i.guim.co.uk/img/media/f281f45df2cc92709bc3fec424c442dfe77a5385/0_62 2_3150_1890/master/3150.jpg? w=620&q=55&auto=format&usm=12&fit=max&s=da5bb950c8c703669cea94404b9f7f00">

Wow, I wasn't aware of that fact.

Young, the brother of AC/DC’s Angus and Malcolm Young, was a member of the Easybeats and co-wrote its classic hit "Friday on My Mind".

It appears that George was the one with talent in that family.

For the record - I was never a fan of the head-banging crap put out by AC/DC.

One-dimensional, annoying, vomit-inducing drivel.

"It is with deepest sorrow that we inform you of the death of Malcolm Young, beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother. Malcolm had been suffering from Dementia for several years and passed away peacefully with his family by his bedside.”

Renowned for his musical prowess Malcolm was a songwriter, guitarist, performer, producer and visionary who inspired many. From the outset, he knew what he wanted to achieve and, along with his younger brother, took to the world stage giving their all at every show. Nothing less would do for their fans.

Malcolm is survived by his loving wife O'Linda, children Cara and Ross, son-in-law Josh, three grandchildren, sister and brother.

While thanking all for their overwhelming support and heartfelt condolences, the family ask that you respect their privacy during this time of heartbreak and grief.

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.

The family have asked instead of flowers to send donations to The Salvation Army.
