Interview: AC/DC’s Angus Young Says What He’ll Miss Most About Playing With Brother Malcolm


With well over 100 million records sold worldwide, countless unforgettable concerts performed, and a catalog full of some of the greatest songs in hard rock history, few bands can boast of the track record AC/DC has had since forming in 1973. The excellence of their recorded output is the model of consistency itself, from their 1975 debut album, up to their latest, Rock or Bust, which came out last week. Powered by the incendiary guitar work of Angus Young and the cord-shredding vocals of singer Brian Johnson – who took over for Bon Scott after his death in 1980 – the new album is a testament to the band’s songwriting skills and inability to not rock. Though the band recently announced the retirement of founding member Malcolm Young due to health problems, and the drummer’s chair is currently in question  after the legal woes of Phil Rudd, the band is still determined to carry on and give fan’s what they want with all they’ve got. Young and Johnson sat down with VH1 to discuss the new album, somewhat-new rhythm guitarist Stevie Young and how they’ve kept it up for 40 years in the rough and tumble world of high voltage rock n’ roll.
