Brian Johnson Pays Tribute To Malcolm Young

In a post on his official web site, Brian Johnson has paid tribute to his AC/DC bandmate Malcolm Young. Here’s his full statement, “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.
