AC/DC:ssa 36 vuotta laulanut Brian Johnson muistelee menehtynyttä bänditoveriaan Malcolm Youngia

AC/DC:n vokalistina vuodet 1980-2016 toiminut Brian Johnson on julkaissut virallisilla verkkosivuillaan muistokirjoituksen lauantaina 18.11.2017 kuolleesta entisestä bänditoveristaan Malcolm Youngista. Johnson kertoo Malcolmin olleen nerokas kitaristi, joka loi AC/DC:n vuonna 1973, koska Youngin mukaan rock’n’rollia ei tuolloin ollut. Malcolm vetäytyi yhtyeestä dementian vuoksi lopullisesti 2014, Johnson joutui tekemään saman kuulo-ongelmien takia kaksi vuotta myöhemmin.

Brianin kirjoitus kokonaisuudessaan alla:

For 32 years we stood side by side on stage…

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 ’n’ 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
