"The bond we had was unique and very special", Angus explained.

Young's death follows the passing of Angus and Malcolm's brother George Young in October. Angus is still with the band and appeared on their latest tour, the Rock or Bust trek. He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted.

"Malcolm had been suffering from Dementia for several years and passed away peacefully with his family by his bedside". He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever. The commentary for the entry was written by legendary music producer and co-president of Columbia Records Rick Rubin, who wrote, "Nothing gets in the way of the push-and-pull between the guitarists Angus and Malcolm Young, bassist Cliff Williams and drummer Phil Rudd".

Besides a brief absence in 1988, Young was an integral part of AC/DC from its start in November 1973 right through to April 2014, when it was announced that he would receive treatment for dementia.

"I have to go". "He had that drive, and I feel obligated to keep it going, maybe because I was there in the beginning with him".

Animal rights advocates, environmentalists and, crucially, even some Republicans had urged Trump to reverse course. Where 5 million of the giant pachyderms once roamed African savannahs, there are now just 400,000.

Some of the band's most popular songs include "Back in Black", "Thunderstruck", "Hells Bells", "You Shook me all Night Long" and "For Those About to Rock".

Young last featured on the band's Black Ice tour, which ran from 2008 to 2010 and is the fourth-highest grossing tour of all time. "The entire rock n roll community is heartbroken by his passing". "RIP Malcolm Young xx".

Adams called Young "the engine that roared behind the most powerful band in the world".

The family statement continued: "Malcolm is survived by his loving wife Linda, children Cara and Ross, son-in-law Josh, three grandchildren, a sister and a brother".
