****************************************************************************************************************   Despite the fact that AC/DC singer Brian Johnson was unceremoniously replaced by Axl Rose when his hearing problems led him to abruptly leave the band’s Rock or Bust tour last year, Johnson looked back fondly on his days sharing a stage with Malcolm Young in a post on his website this weekend in the wake of Malcolm’s death.

In a tribute to Malcolm Johnson posted this statement entitled:

For 32 years we stood side by side on stage

I am saddened by the passing of my friend Malcolm Young, I can’t believe he’s gone.
We had such great times on the road.
I was always aware that he was a genius on guitar, his riffs have become legend, as has he.
I send out my love and sympathy to his wife Linda, his children Cara and Ross,
and Angus, who will all be devastated…. as we all are.
He has left a legacy that I don’t think many can match.
He never liked the celebrity side of fame, he was too humble for that.
He was the man who created AC/DC because he said “there was no Rock,n,Roll” out there.
I am proud to have known him and call him a friend, and I’m going to miss him so much.
I salute you, Malcolm Young.
