He died peacefully on Saturday with his family by his bedside, a statement said. In another publication, Angus Young also wanted to express a tribute to this " perfectionist", " this unique man ".

AC/DC was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.

AC/DC - which was also co-founded by Malcolm's younger brother Angus - confirmed the sad news in a Facebook post uploaded to the site shortly after Malcolm's passing, in which they did not disclose the star's cause of death.

He was replaced by his nephew Stevie for the band's last tour promoting the 2014 album Rock Or Bust.

"He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted", said AC/DC. He took great pride in all that he endeavored.

"His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed", he wrote.

His death comes just weeks after his older brother, George, passed away aged 70.

"He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever", the band said. The album became the band's first record to break the U.S. Top 100 and is the bands second highest selling album, behind the 1980 hard rock classic "Back in Black".

"He was older than me - I always looked up to him", Angus Young said of his brother in an interview previous year with Rolling Stone Magazine, saying he was "always one to battle through".

Adams called Young "the engine that roared behind the most powerful band in the world".

"RIP Malcolm Young", wrote singer-songwriter Ryan Adams.

The family statement continued: "Malcolm is survived by his loving wife Linda, children Cara and Ross, son-in-law Josh, three grandchildren, a sister and a brother".
