I am sure that by now you are all aware of the death of one of the founding members of AC DC, Malcolm Young. After he retired from the band in 2014 at the onset of dementia I guess it was inevitable that he may not stayed with us for too much longer. But at 64, well that is a young death in the first world these days.

There have been many, many tributes on-line and in print to Malcolm over the past 48 hours. He was the heart of the band to many and I tend to agree with that. His younger brother Angus clearly took a more prominent position but without Malcolm I doubt that AC DC would have scaled the heights that they did. Were AC DC a punk band? No not in the sense of them being a part of the punk ‘movement’ but they sure as hell had punk swagger and attitude.

My thoughts are with Malcolm’s family, friends and legions of fans across the globe. Malcolm Young RIP you rocked our world and we salute you!
