R.I.P Malcome Young
« on: Time Format »

Just heard the awful news that Malcolm Young has passed away.  R.I.P.  He will be remembered as being a legendary musician and driving force within one of the most important rock bands of all time!!

He was sadly missed when he departed ACDC a few years ago due to dementia and this is just an even more sad event to behold.

Thanks for all the great music Malcolm, we'll always remember you!

Rock & Roll Royalty, to be sure :(  You simply cannot tell the story of Rock without mentioning him.

He had been battling that dementia for some time, at least he's not fighting that anymore. RIP

I agree, may be it was better for him to pass away rather than suffer from the loss of his mind!  Just really sad which ever way you look at it.

His music and contribution will always live on so that's the main thing.

RIP Malcolm.
So glad I saw you live at Monsters of Rock in Copenhagen while AC/DC were at the top.
You really got the rhythm going strong!  I felt close to shirt-fronted..

Malcolm Young was AC/DC.  They could not be AC/DC without him.  A revolving door of drummers, a few different vocalists, but take Malcolm out of there and they do not exist, IMO.

True, everybody talks about Bon and Brian, and Angus always has the spotlight with the spastic schoolboy angst but the truth is that Malcolm made the riffs.  He preferred to stay back near the drum riser and hold that rhythm section accountable.  Not even a mob boss could lock everything down tighter than Malcolm, Cliff, and whichever drummer they had at any given time.   I never was a huge fan of Angus; I appreciated him but I always had a ton more respect for Malcolm because he just did his thing, did it better than anyone else, and didn't showboat, bullshit, or braggert his way through any of it.

Malcolm did more with 4 chords than all the other Rock guitarists of his generation together.  And did it with fuggin STYLE and TRUTH.
The world of Rock music owes a huge debt to this man, and we'll sing loud and proud all of his riffs.   RIP Malcolm Young.  We thank you so very much for your gifts to us.

Jesus that's a little harsh man but if that's your opinion, that's your opinion :o

They didn't have a revolving door of Drummers at all, it was mostly Phil Rudd for best part of 20 years, then Simon Wright and Chris Slade.  And to be fair to Brian and Bon, man those guy's are equally as special, no question about it.  And the Spastic School boy..........................that man's energy and ability are not to be overlooked in the slightest.  My only criticism of Angus is how he treated Brian Johnson the minute he heard he was no longer able to play live again.  Totally ridiculous, cold and callous.  I'm so glad Brian got his hearing fixed, that man lost his ability to sing a few years back and then totally regained it for the Black Ice album.  Utter Respect for Brian Johnson.
