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 Malcom 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.

    лично для меня единственное, чем ценна эта группа - это тем, что ее любит сюткин. думаю, умный читатель после этого догадается о том, какова моя оценка значимости сего коллектива в истории мировой рок-культуры.

    For a fact, AC/DC have been pretty much repeting themselves for decades (that is not to say that all songs sound the same, but as in there isn't much diversity in their music) but I suppose that is ok if you like them.

    Ronald Belford Scott, Bon Scott, nació en Forfar (Escocia) en 1946. Fue el primer cantante de AC/DC. A él se deben muchos de los grandes discos de la formación australiana. El grupo culminó su camino hacia el éxito internacional en 1979 con Highway to Hell. Sin embargo, Scott murió el 19 de febrero de 1980 víctima de una intoxicación etílica.
