Welcome to my Music Diary – today for the 6th January!
Happy birthday to Malcolm Mitchell Young, who was born on the 6th January 1953 in Glasgow, Scotland! In 1963 Malcolm and his family moved to Australia. His older brother George became a famous musician and was a member of the legendary band The Easybeats. Also Malcolm began playing the guitar and joined a band called „The Velvet Underground“ (not to be confused with the legendary US formation featuring Lou Reed and John Cale!). In 1973 he founded with his younger brother Angus Young his own band AC/DC, which became one of the most successful rock acts ever.
In 2014 Malcolm has to leave AC/DC due to health reasons and his nephew Stevie Young took over his place. His guitar work is featured on the latest record „Rock or Bust„. Malcolm Young died from the effects of dementia on 18th November 2017 at the age of 64 years.
