AC/DC alumni pay their respects to Malcolm Young at funeral
AC/DC co-founder and guitarist Malcolm Young was laid to rest in a ceremony attended by former bandmates including brother Angus, singer Brian Johnson, bassists Cliff Williams and Mark Evans, and drummer Phil Rudd.
He was celebrated as a “generous” man with “immense talent.”
Young died earlier this month at 64 after suffering dementia and other health issues. He retired from AC/DC in 2014.
The Catholic funeral took place at St Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney, Australia. Among the many family, friends and fans who attended were Australian rock singers Jimmy Barnes and Angry Anderson.
“Malcolm’s family thank you for your love, support and overwhelming outpouring of kindness during this time,” a statement in the booklet read. “They ask that you remember Malcolm as a man who was generous and had immense talent. His enormous legacy to his family and music industry worldwide will never be forgotten.”
Angus Young carried his older brother's guitar as the coffin was placed in a hearse.
