Oz Rock Legend Malcolm Young Dies  豪ロック伝説的な人マルコム・ヤング氏が死去

Rock legend Malcolm Young, co-founder of Australia’s biggest ever band AC/DC, has died. He was 64.
Young formed AC/DC in 1973 with his younger brother, Angus, who remains the only original member of the band still playing.
Young played rhythm guitar for AC/DC until he left the band in 2014 to receive treatment for dementia.
He had overcome lung cancer, heart problems and alcoholism.
Young was described as the driving force behind AC/DC, which has sold about 200 million albums, making it among the best-selling artists of all time.
AC/DC toured Japan early in the Brian Johnson era, visiting in 1981 and again the following year. However, the band didn’t tour again until 2001. Acca Dacca last played Japan in 2010, Malcolm Young’s final tour with the band.
The Youngs’ elder brother, George, died last month. He had produced the early AC/DC albums and been a member of The Easybeats, one of Australia’s first rock bands to achieve global success.
