Biography

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia (1973 – present)

AC/DC is an Australian band formed in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia in December 1973 by Angus and Malcolm Young. Their albums have sold in colossal numbers; the total is now estimated at well over 200 million copies worldwide, with the 1980 album Back In Black selling over 21 million in the US alone and 40+ million worldwide, making it, according to statistics, one of the best selling albums in the world, outsold only by Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’, and tied with Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side of the Moon’. Their newest album released in 2008 entitled Black Ice is critically acclaimed even ahead of its release. The band has had two distinctive lead singers, and fans tend to divide its history into the “Bon Scott era (1974-80)” and the “Brian Johnson era (1980-present)”.

Most fans will agree that lead guitarist Angus Young (Now living In The Netherlands) is the face of AC/DC, appearing on the cover of most albums. His wild stage antics and schoolboy uniform have made him one of the most loved guitar players of all time. He has the unparalleled ability to captivate an audience of over 50,000 people with just the sounds of his guitar and his facial expressions. Most footage of Angus consists of him either doing Chuck Berry’s patented Duck Walk across the stage, or of his mop of hair flying around as he rocks through one of his famous solos. Aside from captivating solos, he has also created some of the most well-known riffs together with his brother Malcolm Young.

    Really upset about the news of Malcolm's dementia. AC/DC just won't be the same without him.

    I'm so very sad about Malcolm Young. He was always one of my favorite members of the band, such a great guitarist and extremely cool. My father had dementia, one of the only diseases in which the family members suffer more than the person who has it.

    sounds like he has dementia....so a physical impossibility to do this album......also sounds like it's been a bit of a secret coz it's so bad that his wife has had him commited to a home .so it's the end of an era

    It's great to get a new album, but also very sad as it's the frist without Malcolm. I feel bad for him that he couldn't at least do this last album.
