Was anticipating this news, given the diagnosis of dementia mentioned above. I used to not give Malcolm the credit he was due, seeing him as "just a rhythm guitarist". However, I reappraised him when I saw AC/DC live years ago and saw/heard how important his feel was to the band's sound. He also made significant contributions to writing AC/DC's songs, often coming up with some of the signature riffs (e.g., Back in Black).
