It was great to get the opportunity to open for AC/DC on the Highway To Hell tour & we certainly learned a thing or two. His infectious crunching riffs, iconic Gretsch & Marshall tone made him one of a kind. Thank you for the inspiration.#Rip Malcolm Young pic.twitter.com/6Bf C9Wx TFo — Tom Keifer (@Tom Keifer Music) November 18, 2017 R. pic.twitter.com/XIFymz F02G — Dave Lombardo (@The Dave Lombardo) November 18, 2017 Malcolm Young of AC/DC`s guitar playing feels like sex. Not only did he co- found one of the greatest bands in the world he co wrote the songs that inspired many of us to wanna be in a band.He was an incredible guitar player & the glue for that band onstage & off. Condolences to his whole family,band mates and fans. — Nikki Sixx (@Nikki Sixx) November 18, 2017 Malcolm Young was such a force in the rock world.Central in New York City to shoot a few quick videos.
