The first couple of weeks of January are very busy in music history. We start off with the following:
- Led Zeppelin‘s John Paul Jones celebrated his 77th birthday on January 3.
- R.E.M.‘s Michael Stipe celebrated his 63rd birthday on January 4
- Joy Division and New Order founder Bernard Sumner also celebrated his 67th birthday on January 4
AC/DC co-founder, rhythm guitarist, songwriter and backing vocalist Malcom Young was born 70 years ago today. AC/DC is arguably one of the most beloved and influential heavy metal bands ever. And although we tragically lost Malcolm back in 2017, his work lives on forever.
Happy birthday, Malcolm! Happy birthday, wherever you are!
