Malcolm: ‘I came in one day and I said [to Angus], “How’s things, anyway? ” “Ah, it’s not really happening. ” So I said, “Well come down and have a jam and check this guy out for us. I’ve found this singer, I’m not sure of him. ”’ Malcolm raised the idea with the band and some members had reservations as to whether Angus could cut it next to the blindingly obvious skills and versatility of Malcolm. Colin Burgess: ‘Malcolm was playing lead and rhythm guitar at the same time.

Fiercely loyal, he had little time for fools or those he felt were attempting to gain any advantage at his expense.
