AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young was remembered at a private funeral service in Sydney.
Young, who died earlier this month at the age of 64, was laid to rest following a service at the city’s St Mary’s Cathedral, with friends, family, bandmates and musicians in attendance.
Mourners included his brother Angus, Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams, Phil Rudd and former bassist Mark Evans. They were joined by promoter Michael Chugg, rocker Jimmy Barnes and Angry Anderson at the service, which included eulogies by members of Young’s family.
Young’s 1963 Gretch guitar, nicknamed The Beast, was placed on the coffin inside the cathedral, while those in attendance were given a booklet and guitar picks inscribed with the dates of Young’s birth and death.
A statement in the booklet read: “Malcolm’s family thank you for your love, support and overwhelming outpouring of kindness during this time.
