And I used to be busy with bands as properly on the time, and doing my very own music and recording. I used to be simply questioning who it might be. I had heard of [Brian Johnson‘s pre-AC/DC band] GEORDIE — simply the identify GEORDIE. I might by no means heard of Brian. After which Brian popped up and, in fact, the ‘Again In Black’ album got here out, which was an enormous album all over the world, and so they had been off and operating with Brian. But when Brian give up, they’d get one other singer, and one other singer. [They’ve gone through] completely different bass gamers [and] completely different drummers.

Only a tiny little man — just a bit contact over 5 foot tall — however, boy, he had a giant coronary heart and a giant persona. And he was robust, too — Malcolm was very robust. And it doesn’t matter what, he was AC/DC by and thru. And, in fact, as soon as he handed away, which may be very unhappy, AC/DC, in fact, won’t ever, ever be the identical with out Malcolm. How can it’s?”
