AC/DC’s legendary vocalist and ex-bandmate of Malcolm Young, Brian Johnson wrote an emotional open letter to death of Malcolm Young. 

“For 32 years we stood side by side on stage” titled open letter can be read from below.

“I am saddened by the passing of my friend Malcolm Young. I can’t believe he’s gone. We had such great times on the road.

I was always aware that he was a genius on guitar; his riffs have become legend, as has he.

I send out my love and sympathy to his wife Linda, his children Kara and Ross, and Angus, who will all be devastated, as we all are. He has left a legacy that I don’t think many can match.

He never liked the celebrity side of fame; he was too humble for that. He was the man who created AC/DC because he said there was no rock and roll out there.

I am proud to have known him and call him a friend, and I’m going to miss him so much. I salute you, Malcolm Young.
