There’s no ignoring the influence Malcolm Young and his role in AC/DC has had on the rock sound, but following his death this weekend the tributes from the worlds biggest musicians have flooded in.
Foo Fighters, performed Let There Be Rock during the encore of their Concrete and Gold Tour, opened their Saturday gig at Mexico's Corona Capitol Festival with the 1977 song sating;
"We're going to play some rock and roll for Malcolm tonight”;
Guns N' Roses tribute to Malcolm Young was during their Sacramento, California concert Saturday. Although Axl Rose didn't perform alongside Malcolm during his guest stint in AC/DC, the singer remains close to Malcolm's younger brother Angus Young;
"We're gonna dedicate this to Malcolm Young, who will be sorely missed. By none more than his brother Angus," Rose told the crowd as Slash played a solo rendition of Alice Cooper's "Only Women Bleed."
Guns N' Roses then dedicated their covers of both Bob Dylan's "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" and AC/DC's "Whole Lotta Rosie" to the late guitarist.
Whilst the rest of the world have taken to social media to give touching tributes:
