“,,,And he (Kanye West) goes…’You people are witnessing the greatest living rock star of all-time!!!,’ and then proceeds to mess the words up to [QUEEN’s] ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ — in England! Are you kidding me?’ where I’m just, like, ‘Look… just stop.”

Born on March 31,1955 in Glasgow, Scotland, Angus McKinnon Young was the youngest of eight children of William and Margaret Young, a would be rock icon would eventually pick up a banjo, which has been re-strung with six strings. Having shown so much interest in making racket on the banjo, his mother would buy him a cheap acoustic guitar, and he began to hone his unique skills.
Then, in 1970, history would be made. He became the very proud owner of a Gibson SG at a music store a couple of blocks down the street from the family home. “I got out and got a Gibson SG that I played until it got wood rot because so much sweat and water got into it. The whole neck warped. I bought it second-hand; it was about a ’67. It had a real thin neck, really slim, like a Custom neck. It was dark brown.” Young once said in an interview about his very first Gibson SG, the model of guitar which has remained his weapon of choice since.
Before forming AC/DC, Angus played in a local band called ‘Kantuckee‘. He was eighteen-years-old when he and his older brother, Malcolm, formed AC/DC in 1973 with Angus on lead guitar, Malcolm on rhythm guitar. In 1971. On February 17, 1975 AC/DC would go on to release their debut album, High Voltage. As we all absolutely know, the rest, was indeed…history.
Happy birthday Angus, For The Rock You Have Given Us, We Salute YOU!
