Malcolm Young will be honored with a charity tribute concert in Australia. According to The Pulse Of Radio, the event will take place at Melbourne's Corner Hotel on February 17th. This would be AC/DC's 43rd anniversary on releasing High Voltage in 1975. Malcolm Young was the co-founder of AC/DC and subsequently support the band with his rhythm guitar and backup vocals to all of AC/DC's vocalists.
His brother Angus Young expressed his grief saying, "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. He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever. Malcolm, job well done."
Playing the charity event will be the local AC/DC cover band WHOLE LOTTA ROSIE, along with members of various well-known Australian acts such as the Jimmy Barnes band, the Suzi Quatro band, POWDERFINGER and more. Proceeds will be given to the Dementia Foundation.
Young died in November due to dementia and failing health. He died at the age of 64. In 2014 it forced him to quit the band and allowed for his nephew Stevie Young to take his place. Malcolm is remebered as a "humble man" making his role fitting of rhythm guitar and backup vocals.
