    Well, that sucks. I’m a long time AC/DC fan.

    He has been ill for awhile during the past year or two. Didn't tour with the band for awhile I think. I'm sure his brother Angus will be soul searching now about continuing without Malcom.

    Yeah, I think he was battling dementia/Alzheimer's.

    Uh I dunno about that now. He was great but there are many. Allen Collins comes to mind.

    I like 'em both, but if I had to choose it'd be Skynyrd.

    Agreed, but I'd also put Nancy Wilson into the mix as an outstanding rhythm player.

    RIP, Malcom. AC/DC is one of the best.

    It's a long way to the top if you want to rock 'n roll.

    But he definitely made it and will be missed.
