❝ We’ve always been a true band. You won’t find one any truer. AC/DC will always be AC/DC. Sometimes we’ll do well, sometimes not so well, but the music of AC/DC will always be the sameWe’ve always been a true band. You won’t find one any truer. AC/DC will always be AC/DC. Sometimes we’ll do well, sometimes not so well, but the music of AC/DC will always be the same ❞ — Malcolm Young
Malcolm Young, one of the guitarists and founder of the most amazing Rock n’ Roll band in the world is retiring after 40 years.
It is truly sad that we will not have Malcolm on stage any longer and that he has this difficult disease to go through, but I pray that he recovers and moves on, spending time with his family and enjoying his deserved rest.
Malcolm, without him there would be no AC/DC. He was the one who started this dream, who stepped on the gas to this rock n’ roll ride. Thank you so much for all this years of music, for your dedication to the band and devotion to your fans, for all the experiences you provided us with around your music, every chord you play and song you write remain in the history of rock.
I wish him all the best, and I am sure he is proud of everything he has done, and that it is still not over. I know he feels the joy of all his fans supporting him and after all these years, all the generations appreciating and adoring his music, and the band on the run for another brand new tour. There is no way to sum up what Malcolm has done for all of us, how he helped so many people going through life, what he brought to us and how important he is. It’s time to ride on, and let nothing bring him down after this whole life full of energy and high voltage power.
What I do know is that Mal will forever be within AC/DC, no matter what happens. Thank you once again for 40 years of pure Rock n’ Roll.
A legend never gets forgotten, never dies, remains in our hearts forever. You can’t stop a legend, you can’t stop a thunder, you can’t stop Rock n’ Roll.
Brian Johnson of AC/DC.
I heard this on the Howard Stern Show in 1996 and I’ve brought it up every time AC/DC’s come up in conversation since then and I never tracked down the original quote until now.
