Angus McKinnon Young (born 31 March 1955) is an Australian guitarist, best known as the co-founder, lead guitarist, songwriter and sole constant original member of the Australian hard rock band AC/DC. He is known for his energetic performances, schoolboy-uniform stage outfits and his own version of Chuck Berry‘s duckwalk. Young was ranked 24th in Rolling Stone magazine’s 100 greatest guitarists of all-time list.
In 2003, Young and the other members of AC/DC were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The youngest of eight children of William and Margaret Young, Angus was born in Glasgow, Scotland. In 1963 he emigrated from Scotland to Sydney, with his parents, older brothers Malcolm and George, and older sister Margaret. He dropped out of Ashfield Boys High School at age 15. His older brother, Alex, remained in Scotland and later formed the London-based group Grapefruit. His oldest brother Stephen was the father of his future AC/DC bandmate Stevie Young.
Young first started playing on a banjo, re-strung with six strings. He first started playing guitar on a cheap acoustic model purchased second-hand by his mother. His first Gibson SG was bought second-hand around 1970 from a music shop just down the street from his home:
