Angus McKinnon Young was born on 31st of March 1950, in Scotland. Although he is Scottish, he lives in Australia because he has always loved this country.
He got famous for playing in a band which he founded with his brother Malcom, AC/DC. The band’s name is from a sticker that they found behind their sister’s sewing machine when they were only 9 and 14 years old! Now, AC/DC is separated due to illness of one of the members and Angus is playing with other iconic bands like, for example, Guns N’ Roses.
He always plays with a school uniform because when the band started he didn’t have time to change clothes for the concerts, which were usually after classes. So, his sister suggested that it should be his symbol in every concert, even after he finished school. He is also known for his own guitar model, Gibson SG which he uses in every concert.
Although he is 61 years old, he is very energetic on stage and he says that, when he climbs up and sees all the audience, it is like he is 16 years old again. Surprisingly, he is only 1,57 meters high and is one of the best guitarists ever.
