Former AC/DC singer Brian Johnson has commented on the death of founding member Malcolm Young. He writes on his website, "He has left a legacy that I don’t think many can match. He never liked the celebrity side of fame, he was too humble for that. He was the man who created AC/DC because he said 'there was no Rock n' Roll' out there.' I am proud to have known him and call him a friend, and I’m going to miss him so much. I salute you, Malcolm Young."
AC/DC lead guitarist Angus Young says, "As his brother, it is hard to express in words what he has meant to me during my life, the bond we had was unique and very special. He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever. Malcolm, job well done.
"With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band. As a guitarist, songwriter and visionary he was a perfectionist and a unique man. He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted. He took great pride in all that he endeavored. His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed."
