Malcolm Young’s son joined an AC/DC tribute band to sing some of the classic hits co-written by his father.
Glasgow-born Malcolm, who founded the hard rock legends with his brother Angus in 1973, played with the band until 2014, when it was announced that he’d be retiring permanently due to the onset of dementia. He died on November 19, 2017 at the age of 64.
