Malcolm Young Life

Malcolm Mitchell Young (born 1951 to 18 November 2017) was an Australian singer and songwriter best known as a co-founder, rhythm guitarist, backing vocalist, and songwriter for the hard rock band AC/DC.

Except for a brief absence in 1988, he was with the band from its inception in November 1973 until he resigned in 2014 due to health reasons.

In 2003, Young and the other members of AC/DC were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, although his younger brother Angus was the more prominent of the brothers, Malcolm was described as the driving force and the band's leader.

Despite his release from the band, AC/DC was determined to keep performing with his blessing in 2014.

He was responsible for the band's sound, wrote many of their guitar riffs, and co-wrote the band's songs with Angus. In 2014, a young boy from AC/DC was admitted to dementia care.

In September 2014, the band's leadership announced that he would not be resigned permanently.

On November 18, 2017, he died from the disease.

Early life

William Young, the young's father (1911–1985) of Glasgow's Cranhill district, lived with his family at 6 Skerryvore Road. William began as a wheel boy in a rope factory and then as a machine and saw operator in an asbestos and cement factory. He joined the Royal Air Force in 1940 and served as a flight engine mechanic in World War II. He served as a yard man for a builder and then as a postman. He married Margaret (1913-1988; his first name was Young), who was a housewife.

1963 was one of Scotland's worst winters on record, with snow 8 feet (2.4 m) deep. At that time, a television commercial in Scotland encouraged families to start a new life in Australia. In late June 1963, thirteen members of the Young family left Scotland, including fifth son George (1946-1977) and younger brothers Malcolm and Angus (b). (George, 1955) Stephen (1933–1989), his only sister Margaret Horsburgh (1935–2019), and brother William Jr. (b.) were all in tow. 1940 (in the United States)? 6–7 Alex (1938–1997), another elder brother who was a member of Tony Sheridan's backup team The Bobby Patrick Big Six, stayed in Europe and later became a member of London-based firm Grapefruit. 6–7 John (B) is the brother of another brother, John (b. 1937 (and later): The couple had left Australia separately.

"All the males in our family played guitar, including myself, and then Angus, and then Angus." 6–7 In Nissen huts, George became friends with Harry Vanda, another migrant. The Young family lived on 4 Burleigh Street in Burwood's inner suburb of Burwood, NSW, where they later moved to a semi-detached house.


Malcolm Young Career

Music career

Both Angus and Malcolm Young formed Marcus Hook Roll Band with their brother George and his musical partner Harry Vanda. Tales of Old Grand Daddy, a project in Australia, has been released. Malcolm Young appeared on the 1974 release of "Evie," written and produced by Harry Vanda and George Young. The song is 11 minutes long and has three parts. In Part One of the album, Young played the guitar solo. Malcolm Young was in a Newcastle-based band The Velvet Underground (not the well-known 1960s band).

Malcolm Young and his younger brother, Angus, formed AC/DC in 1973. Angus was on lead guitar, Malcolm on rhythm guitar, Colin Burgess on drums, Larry Van Kriedt on bass guitar, and Dave Evans on vocals. They first single, "Can I Sit Next To You," was later re-recorded with Bon Scott as their vocalist. After seeing the letters "AC/DC" on the back of Margaret's sewing machine, they decided on the term AC/DC. AC/DC had migrated to Melbourne in 1975.

They returned to the United Kingdom and began a European tour with Black Sabbath in early 1977. Although Bon Scott and Ozzy Osbourne became best friends quickly, several other members of the two bands weren't able to get along so well. Young was charged by Geezer Butler with a knife on him in one instance, but Butler has since denied it.

Mark Evans, a bassist, was fired early in 1977; ostensibly, he was not able to find someone who could sing backup vocals with him. Evans cited differences with Angus and Malcolm as a contributing factor. Cliff Williams replaced him.

Young didn't attend the majority of AC/DC's Blow Up Your Video World Tour in 1988 to address alcohol use issues. He eventually became sober and rejoined the band. Stevie Young, his uncle, was recalled during his absence.

Malcolm Young, who played guitar in AC/DC from 1973 to his last live gig with the band in June 2010, toured the world with few breaks during his 37-year tenure with the band. He continued to write songs in AC/DC until his self-imposed retirement from the band in 2014, being replaced by his nephew Stevie once more.

During the recording of Malcolm's album Power Up, a source inside leaked that they were working with tracks that Malcolm did not have before his death, although some go back as far back as 2003.

Malcolm Young owned and performed several guitars during his time with AC/DC, but it is most well-known for his use of Gretsch gui
