Following the news of AC/DC co-founder Malcolm Young's death, fans have begun mourning the rock icon's passing by sharing footage from his last performance with the band.
It's been a hard time for the family, as they lost their brother George in October, Rolling Stone reports.
"In the process, AC/DC have carved out a niche somewhere between hard rock and heavy metal that's been an inspiration to aspiring musicians - and given us crank-up-the-volume radio staples "Back In Black, ' 'Highway to Hell" and 'You Shook Me All Night Long, '" the hall of fame notes on its website.
Angus Young added, "As his brother it is hard to express in words what he has meant to me during my life, the bond we had was unique and very special".
"Malcolm Young was my friend and the heart and soul of AC/DC", he continued.

Young and his brother Angus created AC/DC in the early 1970s.
"He was older than me - I always looked up to him", Angus Young said of his brother in an interview past year with Rolling Stone Magazine, saying he was "always one to battle through".
Former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Gus G. called Young "co-founder Of the greatest Rock n Roll band ever". The albums were produced by brother George and his songwriting partner Harry Vanda, who brought out the pop sensibilities in the band's crushing template. The act debuted in 1975 with "High Voltage", followed by a string of popular records including "T.N.T.", featuring fan favorite "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock "n" Roll)", later that year.
The group signed with Atlantic Records in 1976 - they played New York's punk mecca CBGB on their first US tour - and their reputation grew quickly as albums followed in rapid succession: "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap", "Let There Be Rock", "Power Age". That's when it kind of, you know, hit me. His razor-sharp production cast the band's inherent melodicism into an even greater light, and the album was an global hit that over the years has sold more than 7 million copies in the USA alone.
Over 40 years, AC/DC would sell more than 200 million albums of riff-driven, sometimes juvenile but always anthemic rock, including 1980's "Back in Black", which remains the second-best-selling rock album of all time. It was one of 168 gigs the band played in support of their fifteenth studio album "Black Ice", which was released in 2008. "I toured with AC/DC on their "Stiff Upper Lip" tour". Malcolm had been battling Dementia for the past few years.
