AC/DC's Malcolm Young died at the age of 64

Malcolm Young, guitarist, and co-founder of AC/DC has died at the age of 64.

The musician had been suffering from dementia for the last three years after retiring from the band to address his health-related issues. He died peacefully on Saturday with his family by his bedside.

Malcolm Young started the band with his brother Angus Young in 1973.

“As a guitarist, songwriter and visionary he was a perfectionist and a unique man,” Angus Young said in a statement on the AC/DC website. “He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted. He took great pride in all that he endeavored. His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed. 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. He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever. Malcolm, job well done.”

“Renowned for his musical prowess, Malcolm was a songwriter, guitarist, performer, producer, and visionary who inspired many,” AC/DC said in a statement. "From the outset, he knew what he wanted to achieve and, along with his younger brother, took to the world stage giving their all at every show. Nothing less would do for their fans.”

He is survived by his wife and two children.

Man arrested for urinating on a family at a Metallica concert

A New Mexico man has been arrested after allegedly urinating on a family during a Metallica concert in Glendale, AZ. According to an ABC15 report, a man, his wife, and their 10-year-old daughter were in attendance at an August 4 Metallica show at the University of Phoenix when they "felt warm liquid washing over their backs and legs."

The father allegedly turned around to find 44-year-old Daniel Daddio "holding onto his genitals." After being confronted, Daddio supposedly responded with a shrug. The incident was reported to stadium employees who in turn informed an Arizona Department of Public Safety trooper.

Daddio was arrested and authorities report that he was "heavily intoxicated at the time." Daddio has been charged with one count of indecent exposure and one count of disorderly conduct.
