AC/DC’s Angus Young Opens Up About Late Brother’s Battle With Dementia

Angus Young in a recent interview opened up about his late brother Malcolm Young‘s struggle with dementia during his final days.

The AC/DC co-founder became emotional during an appearance on “60 Minutes Australia” on the third anniversary of Malcolm’s death.

“I think the hardest part was not so much in parting, because that was a kind of end, you know – the relief,” Angus said. “The decline, that’s the hard part, because you knew him, and then to see that was gone.”

“Even to the end . if I was there, from here to here he had a big smile. And I think that was probably . for me, that always gave me a kind of joy, even though he was in that state. That was always the joy of it,” Angus said of his brother, who retired from the rock band in 2014 due to health reasons.

AC/DC lead singer Brian Johnson also paid emotional tribute to Malcolm by taking part in the interview.

“Very emotional when he went. It’s all too soon, isn’t it? Too quick and too soon,” he said of Malcom’s death in November 2017.
