John, Rick and all of The Angels wish to express our deepest sorrow at the death of Malcolm Young.
Mal was a friend from way back in 1975 when we met him and the guys from AC/DC in Pt Pirie SA. He played a massive part in our career by introducing us to his brother George and Harry Vanda in that same year, resulting in our contract with Alberts. John and Rick have great memories of the gigs we did together, trading guitar riffs in hotel rooms, barbecues at George’s house jamming in his music room, and being present at a number of AC/DC recording sessions as they were at ours. Also we toured the country with AC/DC in February 1981, the Back in Black tour. Mal was a great guy, a gentleman who could be hard as nails in his determination for the band to succeed on the world stage.
John: “Mal was the best rhythm guitarist, solid as a rock, and a huge influence on my own playing”.
Our condolences to Angus, Fifa, Harry and his family. RIP Malcolm Young.
