Malcolm Young was a perfectionist and a unique man
“With great dedication and commitment, it was the driving force of the group,” Angus said. “As a guitarist, composer and visionary, he was a perfectionist and a unique man. He said and did what he wanted. His loyalty to fans was unbeatable. As a brother, it is difficult to express in words what meant the bond we had was unique and special. Leave an enormous legacy that will live forever.”
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, on January 6, 1953, Malcolm moved with his family to Australia at the end of the 1950s, and in 1973 he founded Ac/Dc together with his younger brother Angus in Sydney. Malcolm left the band in April 2014 to receive treatment for dementia. A few months later, Ac/Dc management announced its final retirement. Since then he was admitted to a specialized center in an Australian city.
