Angus Young in death rumour 16 June 2003 5.37pm AC/DC guitarist Angus Young reportedly passed away on Thursday, aged 48, according to CMU, the daily music newsletter of Unlimited Media. This story has yet to be confirmed and reports of the legendary rockers' show with The Rolling Stones in Germany on Sunday made no mention of the passing of the lynchpin guitarist. Which is odd. IS THIS TRUE?!?!?!
