It has indeed been a long way to the top for the thunder from Down Under. AC/DC have been around for fricking ever, going back to the band formed by Malcolm and Angus Young in 1973 for a New Years gig at the Bondi Lifesavers. They wore schoolboy and other uniforms. Some labeled them “hard rock/blues” some called them “heavy metal” but the lads just called themselves “rock and roll.” The death of Bon Scott in 1980 - after the release of Highway to Hell - nearly killed the band: “Bon’s Gone But AC/DC Rocks On” bumper stickers tell the story. Replaced by singer Brian Johnson, AC/DC are still going strong, having sold more than 200 million records worldwide, 71.5 million albums in America and made all the Greatest Rock Artists of all time, from VH1 to Rolling Stone. AC/DC were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. Currently Angus Young is the only original member, with Axl Rose singing vocals.
