RIP thanks for the music.




MUSIC royalty Malcolm Young, the Australian guitarist and AC/DC co-founder, has died aged 64.

Known for the powerhouse riffs and rhythm guitar that propelled the Sydney group to superstardom, Young had been suffering from dementia for at least the past three years.

He died peacefully on Saturday with his family by his bedside, a statement said.

“With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band,” AC/DC said on its website.

Indeed.   I've always loved their music.  Glad I was able to see them in concert once, it's still my favourite one :)  .

It is not exclusively them.  Some old well knowns are dying young, and some are dying old, and a few are old and still living.  Little Richard still lives and is what you might call, "old"; and also Keith Richard may be considered old and still lives and performs.

Ditto cafejose's comment. Some of the old ones are still around performing. A couple of years ago we went to a concert at a nearby casino to see Frankie Valli (The Four Seasons) at age 79, and he kicked butt.
