The passing of AC/DC co-founder Malcolm Young means an era is over.

"With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band", a statement from AC/DC read.

Australian rocker Jimmy Barnes, guitarist Slash, horror writer Stephen King, Kiss frontman Paul Stanley, Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, Bryan Adams, songwriter Diane Warren and Joe Elliott from Def Leppard also took to social media to pay tribute. From the beginning, he always knew what he wanted to accomplish, and with his younger brother, he has conquered the music scene by giving the best of himself at every concert.

"It is with deepest sorrow that we inform you of the death of Malcolm Young, beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother". The brothers, who were born in Glasgow, Scotland (Malcolm on January 6, 1953), had emigrated to Australia in 1963 with their family when Malcolm was aged 10 and Angus was 8 years old. He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever. The band would become one of the influential rock "n" roll groups of its era.

The band continued to gain speed with 1979's Highway to Hell, which sold more than a million copies worldwide.
