Malcolm Young was bornon 6 January 1953 in Glasgow, Australian, is Musician. Malcolm Young is one of the founding members of the classic hard rock band ‘AC/DC’. A retired musician and songwriter, Malcolm was a quintessential pillar of the band until his retirement in 2014. Though some may argue that Angus Young, his brother, is the main attraction during the AC/DC concert, none can deny that it is Malcolm who has given AC/DC its soul and defined its sound. Undoubtedly he was the musical anchor of the band who made AC/DC synonymous to being a rhythm machine. While his ear-splitting rhythm guitar style gave them a distinction, it was his knowledge of ‘when not to play’ or his value of silence punctuating the riffs that immortalized many of the band’s numbers and albums. A long list of albums and singles wouldn’t have been what they are today had it not been for Malcolm’s ‘silent’ punctuations in between the riffs. His played a major role in AC/DC’s rise to fame as one of the best hard rock bands of the world. He influenced a legion of hard rock players, such as Metallica’s James Hetfield and Guns N’ Roses’ Izzy Stradlin. Ironic as it may seem to be, the man who gave it all and was one of the pillars of strength of AC/DC today no longer remembers anything. Though dementia has ripped Malcolm off his memory, his works will remain in the memory of his fans and music lovers forever.
