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.

    I think Peru will go bankrupt if AC/DC is going to pass by and sell tickets for at least 70 dollars, and isn't Peru also one of those ultra anti-capitalist countries ? or am I confusing this with another country ?

    Any news on whether Phil will be behind the cans during the tour? AC/DC with Malcolm and Phil had one of the best rhythm sections in rock music.

    Would someone please explain how in the hell this abomination of nature: Nicki Minaj have 4/5 stars from her new album and AC/DC has 3.5/5, according to RollingStone? Or is it TrollingStone? Where's the logic, the sense of music, I'm really confused and worried.
