Young played rhythm guitar to Angus' lead, and his driving riffs and mop-top hair were signatures of the band's sound and image for decades.

"Malcolm had been suffering from Dementia for several years and passed away peacefully with his family by his bedside".

"Renowned for his musical prowess Malcolm was a songwriter, guitarist, performer, producer and visionary who inspired many", the statement said.

The band, which was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010, announced his passing on its website with a plainspoken simplicity that reflected their music.

Young died after a years-long battle with dementia, with the legendary Australian rock band confirming the news on Saturday. He took great pride in all that he endeavored. He was replaced by his nephew, Stevie Young, for the band's world tour in 2015. His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed.

Macau GP: Saddened Glenn Irwin takes victory as race ends in fatality
Mr Hegarty's fatal accident was the first at Macau since Luis Carreira from Portugal was killed in qualifying in 2012. There were no anthems of champagne as the podium was held, with race-winner Irwin saying it was "not a celebration".

George Young had served as producer to AC/DC and guitarist for the band Easybeats.

"The bond we had was unique and very special", Angus explained.

The band concludes the message with a simple tribute to Malcolm stating that the guitarist "leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever". His death occurs just a few weeks after the disappearance of his brother George, considered a mentor by the training rock. The band would become one of the influential rock "n" roll groups of its era.

"So sad to learn of the passing of yet another friend, Malcolm Young", Osbourne tweeted.

"While thanking all for their overwhelming support and heartfelt condolences, the family ask that you respect their privacy during this time of heartbreak and grief".
