Legendary Australian guitarist and AC/DC co-founder Malcolm Young has died aged 64.
Known for the powerhouse riffs and rhythm guitar that propelled the Sydney group to superstardom, Young’s family said in a statement he had been
suffering from dementia for several years.
He was replaced by nephew Stevie for the band’s last tour promoting the 2014 album Rock Or Bust.
Young started AC/DC in 1973 with his younger brother, fellow guitarist Angus.
While Angus Young, the group’s school-uniform-wearing lead guitarist, was the public face of the band, Malcolm Young was its key writer and leader, the member the rest of the band watched for on-stage changes and cut-offs.
AC/DC was consistent for over 40 years with a mix of driving hard rock, lusty lyrics and bluesy shuffles, selling over 200 million albums, surviving the loss of its first singer and creating one of the greatest rock records ever in Back in Black, the world’s second best-selling album behind Michael Jackson’s Thriller — via ABC News

The man who launched a million
minimalist movie posters (try not to hold that against him), graphic designer Saul Bass may have spent most of his career advertising other people’s work, but in doing so he quietly became one of the most iconic pop artists of the 20th century. He didn’t work in the movies very often, but many of the posters and title sequences he created have grown to be as famous as the films for which he created them. Directors were floored by Bass’ ability to distil a story down to its bare essence — how his thick black lines and bold swatches of colour seduced and focused a viewer’s attention where other posters would simply try to overwhelm it — and legendary auteurs like Otto Preminger would fight the studios to protect Bass’ creative freedom. His style was so striking and influential that it was widely copied in his own time, and many of the posters that are still attributed to Bass were actually created by imitators (e.g IndieWire
