AC/DC-Gitarrist Malcom Young ist tot!

|   Story

Malcolm Mitchell Young (6. 1. 1953 in Glasgow, Schottland, † 18. November 2017)

Der Rhythmus-Gitarrist von AC/DC ist im Alter von 64 Jahren nach langer Krankheit gestorben. Bereits 2008 wurde Lungenkrebs diagnostiziert. Nach einer langen Tour wurde er operiert und danach wurde auch noch ein Herzleiden festgestellt. 2014 stieg der Gitarrist offiziell aus der Band aus, da er an Demenz litt.

Musikalisch wurde er vielfach unterschätzt, war er doch musikalisch die treibende Kraft von AC/DC und ein begnadeter Rhythmus-Gitarrist.


Das Original-Zitat der Band:


„Today it is with deep heartfelt sadness that AC/DC has to announce the passing of Malcolm Young.

Malcolm, along with Angus, was the founder and creator of AC/DC.

With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band.

As a guitarist, songwriter and visionary he was a perfectionist and a unique man.

He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted.

He took great pride in all that he endeavored.

His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed.

As his brother it is hard to express in words what he has meant to me during my life, the bond we had was unique and very special.

He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever.


Malcolm, job well done.“
