The funeral for AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young was held on Tuesday (November 28) in Sydney, Australia. Malcolm, who co-founded AC/DC with his brother Angus in 1973, died on November 18 at the age of 64 after suffering from dementia and failing health for several years.
Hundreds of people gathered at Sydney’s St Mary’s Cathedral for the service, including Angus Young, former AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd and ex-AC/DC bassist Mark Evans. Also in attendance were ROSE TATTOO‘s Angry Anderson, concert promoter Michael Chugg and Sony Music CEO Denis Handlin.
Eulogies were read by Bradley Horsburgh and David Albert, who described Young as a “quiet, humble and understated man,” according to ABC. The Albert family had managed AC/DC for more than four decades.
One of Malcolm Young‘s guitars was also carried into the church for the service.
Following the service, a pipe band played a medley of songs as the funeral procession left St Mary’s, including the guitar solo from AC/DC‘s “It’s A Long Way To The Top”, as well as “Waltzing Matilda” and “Road To Gundagai”.
