Eddie Van Halen, Ozzy Osbourne, others mourn AC/DC co-founder Malcolm Young

Eddie Van Halen, Ozzy Osbourne, others mourn AC/DC co-founder Malcolm Young”

With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band.

Young's family, which announced his death in a statement, noted that he had suffered from dementia for several years. Young left this mortal coil this week at the too-young age of 64, but man did Malcolm pack some seriously inspired and singular rock and roll into his decades. RIP Malcolm. The announcement from the band said he died peacefully. Young later announced his departure from the band in 2014 due to health reasons that were later revealed to be dementia.

Angus Young added, "As his brother it is hard to express in words what he has meant to me during my life, the bond we had was unique and very special".

While Angus' schoolboy outfit and onstage aggression made him the focal point of the band throughout its career, his older brother's crushing rhythm guitar anchored the band musically, and his no-nonsense toughness anchored it in virtually every other way.

The band concludes the message with a simple tribute to Malcolm stating that the guitarist "leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever". The band would become one of the influential rock "n" roll groups of its era. He wanted the band to continue the tour.

In an interview with the ABC's 7.30, AC/DC lead singer Brian Johnson said Young had told the band to "keep making music". The Young brothers co-wrote most of their material, including trademark hits such as "Highway To Hell, ' 'You Shook Me All Night Long" and 'For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)'.

For those wishing to send messages to the family please visit the Sydney Morning Herald Malcolm Young Memorial website which will be available next week.

Young started AC/DC in 1973 with his brother, fellow guitarist Angus. The experience was "very unusual for him", Angus told the magazine, "but he was always a confident guy, and we made it work".

Young is survived by his wife O'Linda and two children.
