ACDC's Malcolm Young, 64
« on: November 18, 2017, 01:03:15 PM »
He's always been a pretty frail guy, missing tours for rehab and health concerns, often replaced on tour by a younger cousin, Stevie Young. I'm pretty sure he was pickled-drunk his entire adult life. Still, quite a pioneer. Angus got all the attention, but Malcolm was a primary songwriter, and his riffs are timeless.

"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

- Thomas Jefferson

Since David Bowie passed (@ 69), I'm been marginally noticing the ages of rock stars as they drop; seems to be between 65 & 73 years old as a general rule of thumb.

I didn't know George died just a few weeks ago.  Angus and Malcolm weren't the only talents in the family.

RIP to both.  So young to die of dementia.   :'(

I really like their stuff, especially the earlier stuff...and like IDP mentioned, you hear a Malcom riff it's immediately identifiable.

It sure does seem like somebody somewhere is putting one heck of a band together what with everybody checking out of this little ball of mud...
