(Hollywood, California) – Ultimate Jam Night, (www.ultimatejamnight.com) the long-running weekly free music show held at the famed Whisky A Go Go will turn its upcoming Tuesday night edition on November 15th at 8 PM PST into a live broadcast fundraiser honoring AC/DC rock icon Malcolm Young and benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association. The event will be broadcast worldwide via Zinna.TV.
Young struggled with the onset of dementia for a period of time prior to being admitted to full-time nursing care in Sydney, Australia beginning in 2014.
A collection of well-known rockers will participate in a more than two-hour “jam” of AC/DC songs. Included among them will be former AC/DC drummer Simon Wright.

“Malcolm Young created not only music, but an era” said Ultimate Jam Night founder and Quiet Riot Bassist, Chuck Wright. “According to the Alzheimer’s Association, 5.4 million Americans have Alzheimer’s and other related dementias, so this terrible affliction affects many more like Malcolm” said, Wright.
