Dave Evans Says AC/DC Will Never Be The Same Without Malcolm Young And Explains The Reason Why
AC/DC original lead singer Dave Evans opened up about the loss of rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young during a recent interview with The Rocker Diaries, apparently, AC/DC is not the same and will never be without Malcolm since he was the force behind the band.
As you might know, Dave Evans was the original lead vocalist of AC/DC between 1973 and 1974, appearing on the band’s debut single ‘Can I Sit Next to You, Girl‘ which was released on 22 July 1974. The track was only released in Australia and New Zealand in addition to a low-budget promotional video along with the song.
During a recent interview, Dave Evans was asked if he considered his replacement, long-term lead vocalist of AC/DC Bon Scott’s passing in 1980 as the end of the band. Apparently, Evans did not think that way since all the members of the band kept on going despite being affected by the loss of a dear member.
In addition to this, Evans stated that the loss of Malcolm Young was different due to the fact that Malcolm was the driving force behind AC/DC with his strong yet loving personality, therefore, the band is not going to be the same because of his absence.
Here is what Evans said:
“The drive was always Malcolm Young. I remember Malcolm when I first met him. He was such a driving force. Just a tiny little guy — just a little touch over five foot tall — but, boy, he had a big heart and a big personality. And he was tough, too — Malcolm was very tough. And no matter what, he was AC/DC through and through. And, of course, once he passed away, which is very sad, AC/DC, of course, will never, ever be the same without Malcolm. How can it be?”
As you know, Malcolm Young passed away due to dementia he was battling for a long time on November 18, 2017, at the age of 64, leaving his bandmates, family, and fans with a huge hole in their hearts. May great musicians sent out their tributes to Malcolm on the data of his passing such as Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne, Alice Cooper, and late Van Halen guitarist Eddie Van Halen.
