AC/DC co-founder and guitarist Malcolm Young has died at the age of 64 after suffering with dementia for the past three years, which  forced his retirement from the band he founded with his brother Angus Young in 1973.

AC/DC released a statement…

"Today it is with deep heartfelt sadness that AC/DC has to announce the passing of Malcolm Young, Malcolm, along with Angus, was the founder and creator of AC/DC. With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band. As a guitarist, songwriter and visionary he was a perfectionist and a unique man. He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted. He took great pride in all that he endeavored. His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed."
