MALCOLM YOUNG R.I.P. 1953 - 2017

AC/DC’s co-founder and creator Malcolm Young has died on November 18, 2017. He was 64. The legendary guitarist passed away surrounded by family, following a long battle with dementia. Born January 6, 1953 in Glasgow, Scotland, before emigrating with his family to Australia in 1963, Young was best known for being the driving force behind the band he co-founded with his younger brother Angus in 1973.He wrote the band’s material and came up with many of their biggest and best guitar riffs. AC/DC would go on to become one of the biggest rock bands in history, racking up hits including “Back In Black”, “Highway to Hell” and “You Shook Me All Night Long”. The brothers were credited as co-writers on every song they recorded, from their 1975 debut High Voltage to 2014’s Rock or Bust. In April 2014 it was announced that Young would take a temporary leave of absence to receive treatment for dementia, before retiring permanently in September that same year. He was replaced by his nephew Stevie for the band’s last tour promoting the 2014 album Rock Or Bust, with his blessing. Malcolm passed away about a month after his older brother, Easybeats guitarist and AC/DC producer George Young, 70, died on October 22.

AC/DC wrote in a statement: “Today it is with deep heartfelt sadness that AC/DC has to announce the passing of Malcolm Young… 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.”

AC/DC
Transmission Impossible (Legendary Broadcasts From The 1970s) [
Eat To The Beat ETTB070, 3CD]
Festival Hall, Melbourne, December 31, 1974. Various TV Appearences 1976-1978. The Old Waldorf, San Francisco, CA, September 3, 1977. The Nashville Record Bar Convention, August 8, 1978. Fairly to very good FM and TV broadcasts.

Sleeve notes:

It was in September 1974 when the legend that was Bon Scott joined the then still wet behind the ears AC/DC, formed the year before by brothers Angus and Malcolm Young in Melbourne, Australia. Over the next five and a half years, Scott fronted the band and, in tandem with the Youngs, established the group as arguably the finest rock act in the world. Bon’s tragic passing in the early months of 1980 only served to strengthen AC/DC’s fan base and appeal and across the next 35 or so years (and counting!) with perennial new boy Brian Johnson having taken on Bon Scott’s role with both aplomb and dignity, AC/DC have gone from strength to strength to strength.

But the Bon Scott years remain those that most adherents of the group remember most fondly and it is with this in mind that this three-CD set has been produced. Featuring a number of radio and television broadcasts, made across the years between 1974 and 1979, it will stand as a superb tribute to Bon and the band and delight every fan still flying the flag. Featuring the group’s first ever radio broadcast in 1974 from their hometown of Melbourne, continuing with numerous TV appearances made in Australia and elsewhere in the early days, plus further broadcast from the US in 1977 and 1978, and including too a number of rare radio interviews with Bon, Angus and the others, this set is destined to become a first class collector s item and will find a pride of place in every AC/DC collection the world over.
