Malcolm Young, guitarist and founding member of AC/DC, dies at 64


Australian guitarists and brothers Angus (L) and Malcolm Young of the hard rock group AC/DC inaugurate the first street in the world bearing their group's name in Leganes, 29kms from Madrid.

"Malcolm had been suffering from Dementia for several years and passed away peacefully with his family by his bedside". Three years ago, the guitarist and songwriter had put an end to his career for health reasons. His death occurs just a few weeks after the disappearance of his brother George, considered a mentor by the training rock.
