He died young. Not making a quip either--he was only 64. Sheesh.

Yeah. I grew up in the eighties. Heavily influenced (not saying positive influence) by AC/DC.

I heard the news and his age. My Mom passed away at 64 too. Kind of an unexpected wham today.

I, too, am a child of the 80's & an Aussie so, I was also heavily influenced by AC/DC so, when I heard Malcolm had been afflicted by the dreaded dementia, somehow, I knew this day would come, sooner rather than later...

On a side note, you know you're getting old when members of the bands you grew up with start dying...

He is just 64 years old, the music industry mourns to his early death.

You know that old saying... You can't kill a Rolling Stone. I don't understand how they are still alive. And still performing? Think they were in Europe this year?

I was an 80's kid, but my mom loves AC/DC. So I listened to them a bunch as a kid. My roommate in college used to play For Those about to Rock when I would bring a girl to our dorm room.

I am a big fan of this walk/dance thing.
