That's too bad. Dementia is horrible, and it's especially hard on the person's family. The person they knew for many years, while physically present, is gone.

Yes Dementia is awful... I can't imagine how heart wrenching it would be to have your loved one lost like that while they are still there physically.

AC/DC had so many great riffs and I think Malcolm was the mastermind behind that band...a very influential player in his own right and probably one of the greatest rock rhythm players ever... this is sad news indeed
