Legends in their own right, Malcolm Young & David Cassidy has passed, unwell with dementia.

Malcolm Young and David Cassidy, both entertainment legends in their own right, died after bouts of dementia. They were 64 and 67, respectively.

Malcolm Young was the brother of Angus Young, who both created AC/DC a power rock and roll band which had more than 71 Million albums throughout its 44 years in existence. In 2003, the band accepted the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame eternally etched in rock history. Malcolm was the primary rhythm guitarist for the band, and through the years, was known for his originality and power chords that has stood the test of time.

David Cassidy is best known as Keith Partridge, the son of character, Shirley Partridge in the American 70’s sitcom, “The Partridge Family”. He’s a musician, singer, songwriter and actor, who arguably was one of the pioneers of the ‘bubblegum pop’ genre. His biggest hit was “I Think I Love You” and “Cherish”.

Dementia is a combination of symptoms, mostly aligned with decline of memory and other ‘thought’ skills. The reduction of these mental skills, become severe enough, where normal day-to-day functions become difficult and ultimately impossible. Alzheimer’s disease is one of these under the umbrella of ‘dementia’. Other less associated ‘dementia’ conditions include thyroid problems and vitamin deficiencies.

Dementia is known generally by the lay person, as a ‘senility’ disease – which is incorrect. Being old, doesn’t mean automatic ‘dementia’.
