AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young has passed away at the age of 64.
Young’s family said he died peacefully with family members at his bedside Saturday.
Malcolm founded the group in 1973 with his brother Angus, and was the rhythm guitarist from the start until 2014, when AC/DC announced he was stepping away due to health reasons.
It was later revealed he had dementia.
The Australian rock band released a statement today (Sat), saying he will be remembered as a “perfectionist and a unique man.”
AC/DC went on to say in the statement — quote — “He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever. Malcolm, job well done”.
