According to News.com.au, the funeral for AC/DC co-founder and rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young will be held on Tuesday (28th) at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney Australia. His family requested that the services will not be broadcast in order to mourn in private. The funeral will begin at 11AM and it is the same day as the annual celebration of Australian music, the ARIA awards.
The co-founder died this past Saturday (18) at the age of 64 after suffering from a series of health issues including dementia. Malcolm’s former bandmate and friend, Brian Johnson, recently publicly opened up about the loss of while artists including Guns N’ Roses and Foo Fighters paid a tribute live on stage. Other artists including Dave Mustaine and Sepultura shared their thoughts on social media.
Malcolm is gone, and although his music lives on, there are no words to express this sadness. Bittersweet as it is, I’m happy he’s free from the dementia and in Heaven with Bon and his brother George. I owe so much to Malcolm Young and his amazing talent. Malcolm, you are my hero, and I will see you one day in Heaven.
