Gene Simmons and Other Rock Greats Pay Tribute to Malcolm Young

Tributes to late AC/DC rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young keep pouring in.

Gene Simmons and Duff McKagan are just some of the latest rockers to chime in on Young's passing, which came after a battle with dementia.

Simmons remembered back to when KISS first took the "kind-hearted" guitarist and AC/DC on their first U.S. tour.

"Malcolm was a good man," Simmons wrote. "Always a kind hearted soul. Finally recall when we took out AC/DC on their first American tour. It will be sadly missed."

McKagan, a member of Guns N' Roses, shared his own kind remarks about the late Australian native and his loved ones.

"Sincerest condolences going out to the Young family today," McKagan wrote. "Malcolm Young sadly passing too soon."


Other rockstars that have spoken out about Young's passing include Zak Wylde, Bryan Adams and Tony Iommi. Artists including Eddie Van Halen and Ozzy Osbourne have previously discussed Young's passing.
