Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl wrote an open letter in honor of AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young, who died on Saturday at the age of 64.
Thank you, Malcolm for the songs, and the feel, and the cool, and the years of losing control to your rock and roll. I will do just that tonight, for you. pic.twitter.com/dnwm1uRFqd

Grohl told Rolling Stone a few months ago that his daughter asked him to buy her an Imagine Dragons album, but he bought her an AC/DC record instead.
But to a store full of teenage Lana Del Rey fans, Grohl is just a long-haired middle-age guy who’s in their way. As he works through the crowd, one young woman looks particularly vexed. “Is the store still open?” she asks him pointedly. “They told us it was going to be shut for the next hour.”
Grohl looks contrite. “I’m just getting my daughter an Imagine Dragons record,” he says.
The girl narrows her eyes. “You should buy her a Lana record,” she says.
Grohl smiles and holds up his LP. “I got her AC/DC?”
