It is a sad day in rock and roll. Malcolm Young was my friend and the heart and soul of AC/DC. I had some of the best times of my life with him on our 1984 European tour. He will be missed and my deepest condolences to his family, bandmates and friends.

Wow…just got off stage here in Brisbane Australia (of all places) to the shocking news of Malcolm Young's passing. So sad…one of the great rhythm guitar players of all time. (James Hetfield and Scott Ian would be the 1st to say so themselves…) #RIPMalcolmYoung pic.twitter.com/qZXHIMpktF

“If I could be any other musician in the world, it would have been Malcolm Young in AC/DC – laying it down on the Gretsch, standing in the back, only moving up to the mic when it was time to do the back-up vocals…” – Dave Grohl, 2017.#MalcolmYoung

RIP Malcolm Young
He was the founding member of AC/DC & the engine that roared behind the most powerful band in the world.
He wrote Back In Black, Highway to Hell, You Shook Me All Night Long, Highway to Hell, so many songs…
Travel safely to the stars, Malcolm.
