Malcolm Young, rhythm guitarist and co-founder of AC/DC, died today Saturday November 18th, 2017 at the age of 64. Young had been suffering with dementia for the past three years.

The illness forced his retirement from the AC/DC which he founded with his brother Angus Young in 1973.

His older brother George Young died just a few weeks back on October the 22nd.

JOE COCKER: MAD DOG WITH SOUL

I recently saw this great new documentary on Joe Cocker called, JOE COCKER: Mad Dog With Soul.

It's a "must see" for Cocker fans.

 

 

 

 

 

Last week I had some friends (all from Germany) on the stage with me. Ralf Storms has played with me quite a lot over the years and we did Johnny B Goode and Walkin By Myself. Jürgen Dick (on blues harp) played Hoochie Coochie Man and Before You Accuse Me and, from Hamburg, Christian Zabel on guitar (I had never met Christian before) played Johnny B Goode. These guys are all great musicians and, I look forward to meeting up with them again in the future.
