“Malcolm has been suffering from dementia for several years and died peacefully with his family at his bedside,” the group said on Facebook.

Only a few weeks after the death of his brother George, Malcolm Young, who formed the legendary AC / DC guitar duo, died. The group has announced the news to its fans on Facebook.

“It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the death of Malcolm Young, husband, father, grandfather and beloved brother, Malcolm had been suffering from dementia for several years and died peacefully with his family at his bedside.”

“As a brother, it is difficult to express in words what it meant for me during my life, the connection we had was unique and very special,” added Angus Young in another publication. “He leaves behind a huge legacy that will always live.”
