Όπως είναι φυσικό, η σημερινή είδηση του θανάτου του Malcolm Young στα 64 του χρόνια, σκόρπισε τη θλίψη στον κόσμο της ροκ (και όχι μόνο) μουσικής.
Εκτός από τη συγκινητική ανακοίνωση των AC/DC που συνοδεύτηκε από το εγκάρδιο μήνυμα του αδερφού και επί δεκαετίες συνοδοιπόρου του στην μπάντα, Angus Young, πλήθος μουσικών έσπευσαν στα μέσα κοινωνικής δικτύωσης για να εκφράσουν τη λύπη τους στο άκουσμα της δυσάρεστης είδησης αλλά και να θυμηθούν το σπουδαίο έργο του συνιδρυτή, δημιουργού και κιθαρίστα των Αυστραλών θρύλων.
Ας δούμε, λοιπόν, πώς αστέρες της μουσικής όπως οι Dave Mustaine, Slash, Joe Satriani, Ozzy Osbourne, Tom Morello, Paul Stanley, Lars Ulrich και Eddie Van Halen, αποχαιρέτησαν τον σπουδαίο Malcolm Young.
I have to go…I am losing it that Malcolm is gone. I hate this…

Wow…just got off stage here in Brisbane Australia (of all places) to the shocking news of Malcolm Young's passing. So sad…one of the great rhythm guitar players of all time. (James Hetfield and Scott Ian would be the 1st to say so themselves…) #RIPMalcolmYoung pic.twitter.com/qZXHIMpktF

RIP Malcolm Young
He was the founding member of AC/DC & the engine that roared behind the most powerful band in the world.
He wrote Back In Black, Highway to Hell, You Shook Me All Night Long, Highway to Hell, so many songs…
Travel safely to the stars, Malcolm.

"I’m sad to hear of the passing of Malcolm Young. It was great to get the opportunity to open for AC/DC on the Highway To Hell tour & we certainly learned a thing or two. He was an incredible guitar player & the glue for that band onstage & off. RIP Malcolm, say hi to Bon." – Joe

It is a sad day in rock and roll. Malcolm Young was my friend and the heart and soul of AC/DC. I had some of the best times of my life with him on our 1984 European tour. He will be missed and my deepest condolences to his family, bandmates and friends.
