R. I. P. Malcolm Young. sad

AC/DC couldn't have had a better songwriter or rhythm guitarist. Not really listened too much on AC/DC music, but they've made quite a huge impact in the music industry over the years...

Very sad. Only 64 years old. Apparently he'd had dementia since 2014. Prayers and well wishes to his brother Angus and family cry

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).
