Malcolm Young of the rock band AC  DC performs at the Met Center in Bloomington Minnesota on the Fly On the Wall tour

In an additional statement to Australia's SBS, the band said that Malcolm Young died peacefully Saturday with his family by his side.

Malcolm Young, who helped form the band AC/DC with his brother, Angus, has died at 64, Rolling Stone and the BBC reported Saturday.

"With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band", Angus Young wrote in the post.

Angus Young may have received a bunch of attention as lead guitar on his on-stage antics, but make no mistake that a big part of AC/DC's sound is thanks to Malcolm Young's chugging, powerful rhythm guitar. The band released their debut album, High Voltage, in 1975 which featured hits like "It's a long way to the top" and "High Voltage".

Young had been forced to retire from the band, which has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Rolling Stone said.

Young left AC/DC in 2014 to start his fight with dementia. "RIP Malcolm Young xx".

"He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever", the band said.

"He took great pride in all that he endeavoured".

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

Malcolm and Angus' older brother George, who paved the way for his siblings with legendary 1960s group The Easybeats before finding further success as a songwriter and producer with ex-bandmate Harry Vanda, died last month aged 70.
