Malcolm was a good man. Always a kind hearted soul. finally recall when we took out AC/DC on their first American tour. It will be sadly missed. RIP. https://t.co/InQcTt6LDf

Malcolm had an intensely powerful, percussive and economic style of playing that made him the greatest rhythm guitarist of all time. His uncanny ability to wring only the necessary notes out of his Gretsch was what made AC/DC – his riffs, feel and tone the soul of that band. What he means to me is unquantifiable. I am a rhythm guitarist because of Malcolm Young, he lives with me always and I hope to honor the man and his legacy every time I play. And now I’m going to crank Riff Raff and play along. My condolences to his family and friends. Cheers and RIP Malcolm Young. Tattoo by @thekatvond

Wow…just got off stage here in Brisbane Australia (of all places) to the shocking news of Malcolm Young's passing. So sad…one of the great rhythm guitar players of all time. (James Hetfield and Scott Ian would be the 1st to say so themselves…) #RIPMalcolmYoung pic.twitter.com/qZXHIMpktF

Malcom Young. I spent so many childhood days pretending to be you in my bedroom, air guitar, staring at your posters. Thank you for your contribution to rock and roll.

Just landed in Paris and heard about Malcolm Young passing away. He was the reason I wanted to play rhythm guitar. Toured with him and he was genuinely lovely. The world has lost a true champion.

Malcolm Young of AC/DC`s guitar playing feels like sex. What a perfect. perfect rhythm guitarist. What an original and immensely pleasurable body of work he gave us. Gone way too soon, he will be sorely missed.

This man inspired more rock & roll than the world will ever be able to measure. His infectious crunching riffs, iconic Gretsch & Marshall tone made him one of a kind. The epitome of true, badass rock & roll.
Thank you for the inspiration.#RipMalcolmYoung pic.twitter.com/6BfC9WxTFo

"I’m sad to hear of the passing of Malcolm Young. 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. He was an incredible guitar player & the glue for that band onstage & off. RIP Malcolm, say hi to Bon." – Joe

It is a sad day in rock and roll. Malcolm Young was my friend and the heart and soul of AC/DC. I had some of the best times of my life with him on our 1984 European tour. He will be missed and my deepest condolences to his family, bandmates and friends.

Malcolm is gone, and although his music lives on, there are no words to express this sadness. Bittersweet as it is, I’m happy he’s free from the dementia and in Heaven with Bon and his brother George. I owe so much to Malcolm Young… https://t.co/soxrFpQsmJ pic.twitter.com/YmUI6IH5sG
