Tributes to AC/DC’s Malcolm Young Pour in: Ozzy Osbourne, Eddie Van Halen, Paul Stanley Mourn Guitarist’s Death

AC/DC guitarist and cofounder Malcolm Young died Saturday at the age of 64 after a long battle with dementia. Malcolm co-founded the band in 1973 with brother and fellow guitarist Angus, whose schoolboy outfit and onstage aggression made him the focal point of the band throughout its career. But Malcolm’s crushing rhythm guitar anchored the band musically, and his no-nonsense toughness anchored it in virtually every other way.

Malcolm’s last show with the band took place in Spain in 2010, and his illness forced him to leave officially in 2014, although the band continued to tour and record with his nephew, Stevie. The band’s biggest album, 1980’s “Back in Black,” has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide.

Tributes to Malcolm from rock luminaries flooded social media on Saturday.
