Dave Grohl has posted a heartfelt tribute to AC/DC founding member Malcolm Young, who passed away over the weekend after a battle with dementia.
"37 years ago, my friend Larry Hinkle and I went to see a midnight movie on a Friday night at the Uptown Theater in Washington D.C. It was 1980. We were 11 years old. The movie was Let There Be Rock. And it changed my life," Grohl posted on the Foo Fighters Facebook page. "That film, a live AC/DC performance from Paris [in] 1979, is everything that live [rock] and roll should be. Sweaty. Loose. Loud. A relentless performance from the perfect band. It was the first time I lost control to music. The first time I wanted to be in a band. I didn't want to play my guitar anymore, I wanted to smash it." "Thank you, Malcolm, for the songs, and the feel, and the cool, and the years of losing control to your rock and roll. I will do just that tonight, for you. Malcolm Young RIP."
Young last performed live with AC/DC on tour in June 2010 at a concert in Bilbao, Spain.
