Malcolm Young, AC/DC Guitarist and Co-Founder, Dead at 64

Malcolm Young, guitarist and co-founder of AC/DC, died Saturday at the age of 64. Young had been suffering with dementia for the past three years, an illness that forced his retirement from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted band he founded with his brother Angus Young in 1973.

“Today it is with deep heartfelt sadness that AC/DC has to announce the passing of Malcolm Young,” AC/DC wrote in a statement.

“Malcolm, along with Angus, was the founder and creator of AC/DC. With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band. As a guitarist, songwriter and visionary he was a perfectionist and a unique man. He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted. He took great pride in all that he endeavored. His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed.”

Angus Young added, “As his brother it is hard to express in words what he has meant to me during my life, the bond we had was unique and very special. He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever. Malcolm, job well done.”

The Young brothers lost their older brother George Young, the Easybeats guitarist and AC/DC’s longtime producer, in October at the age of 70.

In an additional statement from Malcolm Young’s family, the band said that Malcolm Young died peacefully Saturday with his family by his side.

“Renowned for his musical prowess, Malcolm was a songwriter, guitarist, performer, producer and visionary who inspired many,” the statement said. “From the outset, he knew what he wanted to achieve and, along with his younger brother, took to the world stage giving their all at every show. Nothing less would do for their fans.”

As rhythm guitarist for the legendary rock band, Malcolm Young served as an indispensable foil to Angus Young’s arena-stuffing riffs. After forming AC/DC in 1973, the Young brothers would be credited as co-writers on every song the band recorded from their 1975 debut High Voltage through 2014’s Rock or Bust. That final album marked AC/DC’s first without Malcolm, who announced in September 2014 that he would permanently leave the band due to dementia.

“We miss Malcolm, obviously,” AC/DC singer Brian Johnson said in July 2014. “He’s a fighter. He’s in [the] hospital, but he’s a fighter. We’ve got our fingers crossed that he’ll get strong again… Stevie, Malcolm’s nephew, was magnificent, but when you’re recording with this thing hanging over you and your work mate isn’t well, it’s difficult. But I’m sure [Malcolm] was rooting for us.”

Malcolm Young last performed live with AC/DC when their tour for 2008’s Black Ice concluded in June 2010 with a concert in Bilbao, Spain.

Malcolm Young, like his older brother George and younger brother Angus, was born in Glasgow, Scotland before the whole Young family emigrated to Sydney, Australia in the early Sixties.

Malcolm and Angus’ first brush with rock stardom came courtesy of their brother George, who found global fame thanks to his band the Easybeats and their song “Friday on My Mind.” Although Malcolm’s two older brothers found success in the music industry, their father still made Malcolm work as a mechanic in a bra factory after leaving school at 15.

“I’ve never felt like a pop star – this is a nine-to-five sort of gig,” Malcolm told Rolling Stone in 2008. “It comes from working in the factories, that world. You don’t forget it.”

In 1973, Malcolm recruited Angus to form a new band, which the brothers named after the “AC/DC” electrical current marker they spotted on their sister’s sewing machine. After a few lineup changes, the Young brothers were introduced to singer Bon Scott by their brother George, who would serve as AC/DC’s producer on their early albums.

Throughout AC/DC’s tenure, Malcolm and Angus Young served as the band’s main creative force, crafting the unmistakable riffs that would make AC/DC one of the biggest bands in music. Together, the brothers would create the music for hits like “Back in Black,” “Hells Bells,” “Highway to Hell,” “Thunderstruck,” “For Those About to Rock (We Salute You),” “You Shook Me All Night Long” and dozens more rock staples.

However, Malcolm’s time in AC/DC was not without strife: A heavy drinker, he briefly left AC/DC in 1988 during the Blow Up Your Video Tour – his only absence from the band up to and until his dementia diagnosis – to go to rehab to curb his drinking problem. After a few months, Malcolm returned to the band and remained sober ever since. “I was not surprised,” George Young said of his younger brother’s sobriety. “When Malcolm puts his mind to something, he does it.”

E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt said in a statement to Rolling Stone, “Malcolm was the essential rhythm guitarist of the world’s greatest working class Hard Rock band. An irreplaceable loss.”

Guns N’ Roses’ Slash told Rolling Stone, “Malcolm Young was one of the best ever rhythm guitarists in Rock n Roll. He was a fantastic songwriter and he had a great work ethic too. I toured with AC/DC on their ‘Stiff Upper Lip’ tour. I found Malcolm to be a really cool, down to earth fellow. The entire rock n roll community is heartbroken by his passing.”

Heart’s Nancy Wilson told Rolling Stone, “Malcom Young was the embodiment of rock itself. His rhythm guitar style needed no embellishment. He laid down the simple solid guitar truth that taught us all about the ‘less is more ethic.’ The wild power of simplicity and the head banging hair flipping joys of turning it up really loud and dancing with the vibrations. Thank you, Malcom for being the real deal. We are all going to miss that shredding music that only you and your brother could make together.”

Eddie Van Halen wrote following Young’s death, “It is a sad day in rock and roll. Malcolm Young was my friend and the heart and soul of AC/DC. I had some of the best times of my life with him on our 1984 European tour. He will be missed and my deepest condolences to his family, bandmates and friends.”

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, who regarded Malcolm as one of rock’s greatest rhythm guitarists, tweeted Saturday following Young’s death, “I have to go…I am losing it that Malcolm is gone. I hate this…” Kiss’ Paul Stanley added, “The driving engine of AC/DC has died. A tragic end for a sometimes unsung icon. One of the true greats. RIP.” Tom Morello praised Young as “#1 greatest rhythm guitarist in the entire history of rock n roll.”

Foo Fighters’ leader Dave Grohl honored Young by writing about how, at age 11, watching a live AC/DC performance from Paris in 1979 in the movie theater was life-changing. “That film … was the first time I lost control to music. The first time I wanted to be in a band. I didn’t want to play my guitar anymore, I wanted to smash it,” Grohl wrote. “Thank you, Malcolm for the songs, and the feel and the cool and the years of losing control to your rock and roll.”

The Young brothers and AC/DC were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. With over 110 million albums sold, AC/DC is also the best-selling Australian act of all time.

When Rolling Stone asked the Young brothers in 2008, Who runs AC/DC?,” Malcolm replied, “We both do, because we were there from the start.”

Angus Young

Australian lead guitarist of AC/DC

For the actor born Angus Young, see Alan Young.

Musical artist

Angus McKinnon Young (born 31 March 1955) is an Australian musician, best known as the co-founder, lead guitarist, songwriter and only 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.[1] In 2003, Young and the other members of AC/DC were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Early life[edit]

Young's father, William Young (born 16 February 1911) and his family lived at 6 Skerryvore Road in the Cranhill district of Glasgow in Scotland.[2] William worked first as a wheel boy in a rope works and then as a machine/saw operator in an asbestos/cement business. In 1940 William joined the Royal Air Force serving in World War II as a flight engine mechanic. After the war William worked as a yard man for a builder and then as a postman. His wife Margaret (born 14 July 1913; maiden name also Young) was a housewife.[2]

The Big Freeze of 1963 was the worst winter on record in Scotland with snow eight feet deep.[3] A TV advertisement at the same time offered assisted travel for families for a different life in Australia.[3] Fifteen members of the Young family left Scotland by aeroplane in late June 1963[3] including fifth son, George (6 November 1946 – 22 October 2017), and younger brothers, Malcolm (6 January 1953 – 18 November 2017) and Angus (born 31 March 1955).[2][3][4][5] Also aboard were his eldest brother Stephen (24 June 1933 – 1989), his only sister, Margaret Horsburgh (2 May 1935 – 11 November 2019) and brother, William Jr (born 15 December 1940).[6]: 6–7  Another elder brother, Alex (28 December 1938 – 1997), who was a member of Tony Sheridan's backing group the Bobby Patrick Big Six,[7] stayed in Europe and was later a member of London-based group, Grapefruit.[8]: 6–7  A final brother, John Young (born 17 May 1937), had migrated to Australia separately.[6]: 6–7  Malcolm later described the family's musical background, "All the males in our family played, Stevie, the oldest played accordion, Alex and John were the first couple to play guitar, and being older it was sort of passed down to George, then myself, then Angus."[6]: 6–7  His oldest brother Stevie was the father of Stevie Young who in later years took over from Malcolm in AC/DC.[9]

Initially staying at Villawood Migrant Hostel (a site later developed as Villawood Immigration Detention Centre) in Nissen huts, George Young met and became friends with another migrant, Harry Vanda.[3] The Young family moved into a semi detached house at 4 Burleigh Street in the Sydney suburb of Burwood.[10] Angus dropped out of Ashfield Boys High School at age 15.[11] He first started playing on a banjo, re-strung with six strings;[8] 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: "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."[12]


Both Angus and Malcolm Young were in a band with their brother George and his music partner Harry Vanda called Marcus Hook Roll Band. The project released an album in Australia called Tales of Old Grand Daddy.[13]

Prior to forming AC/DC, Angus Young played in a local group called Kantuckee. Kantuckee's line-up included Bob McGlynn (vocals), Angus Young (guitar), Jon Stevens (bass), and Trevor James (drums).[8] The band split and was later called Tantrum with the following line up: Mark Sneddon (vocals-guitar), Angus Young (guitar), Jon Stevens (bass) and Trevor James (drums).

Young was 18 when he and older brother Malcolm formed AC/DC in 1973. Angus was on lead guitar, Malcolm on rhythm guitar, Colin Burgess on drums, Larry Van Kriedt on bass guitar and Dave Evans on vocals.[8] "Can I Sit Next To You Girl," their first single, was later re-recorded with Bon Scott as their vocalist.[8] They decided upon the name AC/DC, suggested by their sister Margaret, who saw the letters "AC/DC" on the back of her sewing machine.[14]

Young tried a number of stage costumes, such as Spider-Man, Zorro, a gorilla, and a parody of Superman, named Super-Ang,[15] before settling on his signature schoolboy look at the suggestion of his sister. To match this image the press and public were told that Young was born in 1959, not 1955. The original uniform was created by his sister Margaret and when it fell apart from wear and tear, he used his uniform from Ashfield Boys High School in Sydney.[8]

AC/DC released their debut album, High Voltage, on 17 February 1975. Over the next three years AC/DC cemented themselves as a popular hard rock act, especially in Australia, with the follow-up albums, T.N.T., Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Let There Be Rock and Powerage. All their albums until this point were produced by Young's brother George in partnership with Harry Vanda.[3] Their 1979 studio album, Highway to Hell, became their best-selling at the time and launched them to new heights of fame.

Months after this, Scott died from alcohol poisoning. Questions were raised as to whether the band could continue without him.[8] Young and his other bandmates soon decided they should finish the work they had begun for their new album, so they recruited ex-Geordie singer Brian Johnson to replace Scott. Five months later, Back in Black was released as a tribute to Scott.[8] It quickly became a huge success, far outselling any of their previous albums, and going on to reach 22x multi-platinum in the US alone, and selling 50 million copies, the second highest-selling album worldwide, behind only Michael Jackson's Thriller. AC/DC's next album, For Those About to Rock We Salute You, cemented their position as the most popular hard rock act of the time.

AC/DC's popularity declined with their next three albums, Flick of the Switch, Fly on the Wall and Blow Up Your Video. AC/DC looked as though they had reached their peak early in the 1980s and by the end of the decade were in decline.[8] Malcolm Young missed the majority of the band's 1988 Blow Up Your Video World Tour to address his drinking problem.[8] He eventually became sober and returned to the band. During his absence he was replaced by his nephew, Stevie Young.

The band's 1990 studio album, The Razors Edge, brought them back into the spotlight, reaching 5x multi-platinum in the US alone and selling between 10 and 12 million copies worldwide.[8] Over the next 10 years AC/DC released two other studio albums, Ballbreaker and Stiff Upper Lip, which confirmed their renewed popularity and success. After a lengthy eight-year hiatus, AC/DC returned with a new studio album, Black Ice, in 2008. Black Ice debuted at number 1 in 29 countries and was certified multi-platinum in 14 of those, becoming one of their most successful albums worldwide, and was followed by a hugely successful world tour. In 2010, AC/DC released an album of songs used for the Iron Man 2 soundtrack they had put together; this reached number one in many countries around the world, including the UK, and number four in the US. Malcolm Young confirmed in 2011 that AC/DC were working on a 16th studio album.

In April 2014 Malcolm Young was forced to leave the band due to ill health, leaving Angus the sole continuous founding member left in the band. In May it was revealed that Stevie Young, Malcolm and Angus's nephew, would stand in for his uncle to record AC/DC's latest record. In September Malcolm officially retired and Stevie was made AC/DC's official full-time rhythm guitarist. AC/DC released Rock or Bust in the fall of 2014. In March 2016, after the departure of both Malcolm Young and drummer Phil Rudd, AC/DC was set back with yet another departure; long time lead singer Brian Johnson was ordered by doctors to stop performing or face total hearing loss. Angus, determined to finish what the band started, recruited Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose to stand in for Johnson for the remainder of the Rock or Bust World Tour. On September 30, 2020, the band's official Twitter account announced the pending release of a new album, Power Up, with the lineup of Angus Young, Stevie Young, Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams and Phil Rudd.[16]

In 2003, AC/DC were inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of fame and the following year they were ranked number 72 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "100 greatest artists of all time." VH1 ranked them number 23 on their list of the "100 greatest artists of all time" and number 4 in their list of the "100 greatest artists of hard rock."

Personal life[edit]

Young is married to a Dutch woman named Ellen van Lochem. They own homes in Australia, the UK, and the Netherlands.[17]

A heavy smoker, Young is a teetotaler and has been all his life.[11] He is a supporter of Rangers F.C.[18]

On 24 August 2006, Young received Kerrang! magazine's Legend Award from the editor, Paul Brannigan, who called AC/DC "one of the most important and influential rock bands in history".[19] On 16 May 2012, he was named the "Best Australian Guitarist of All Time" in a poll conducted by Australian Guitar Magazine.[20]



Young has used Gibson SGs in various forms (his original, and the basis for his current signature model, was a 1969 - 1971 SG Standard) throughout his career. He also used a modified version of the SG called the Jaydee SG, which was made custom for Young by Jaydee guitars. At least two of his SGs (whether modified Gibson product or ground-up construction) circa 1977 and the Paris Let There Be Rock tapings featured on-board wireless going to his amplifiers, the circuitry installed in a cavity routed into the back of the body.[21] This practice was discontinued due to the potential for electrical shorts due to sweat, and at least one of these guitars would be repaired and used for the Rock or Bust tour.[22] The Jaydee SG featured signature lightning bolt inlays on the fretboard. Gibson made a custom SG for Young with lightning bolt inlays to replace the Jaydee SG. Young's '69 - '71 SG has T Top humbucking pick-ups. Another 1964 SG that he used on the recording of Ballbreaker, has patent # pick-ups. All of these are vintage-output Alnico II or V pick-ups with matched coils typically reading 7.5k - 7.8k DCR. Beginning in 2009, Young started fitting Seymour Duncan humbuckers to all of his touring guitars.[23] He uses Ernie Ball Super Slinky guitar strings (.009-.042)[24] and Fender "Extra Heavy" picks.[25]

Angus Young SG[edit]

Young and Gibson Guitar Corporation have collaborated to make the Angus Young SG. It features a pick-up designed by Young himself (the Angus Young Signature Humbucker) in the bridge position, and a '57 Classic Humbucker in the neck. The neck has "lightning bolt" inlays.[26]


Young mainly uses Marshall 1959 100 watt Super Lead Plexi heads and model 1960 AX and BX 4x12 cabinets with Celestion G12-65 speakers. Later amplifiers included Marshall JMP 2203 and most recently, Wizard Amplifiers. Early wireless systems, the Schaffer-Vega Diversity System that he would begin using in 1977, was also used as a compressor and a booster in his signal to "fatten up" his tone. Ever since adding it to his rig, it was used on several albums in the studio for chosen rhythm guitar tracks and all lead guitar tracks.[27] Beginning with Rock or Bust, due to the discontinuation of the Schaffer system, Young began using a replica of the unit's preamp with a commercial wireless unit from Shure.[22]


Young has stated that he first began playing guitar when he was "little, teeny. I would sort of dabble around five or six years old. That's when I started hearing Little Richard."[28]

In an interview with The Guitar Show, Young noted his influences include his brother Malcolm Young, Chuck Berry, Freddie King, and Muddy Waters, while playing licks relating to Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townshend, John Lee Hooker, and the Kinks' "You Really Got Me".[29][30]

Young has indicated that he was also influenced by Keith Richards,[28] as well as Chuck Berry's performing style, including his banter with audiences and duck walk.[31] When the band covered Chuck Berry songs in their early years, audiences would recognise the song, while noting their renditions were very different from the source material.[31]


Young's playing style is influenced by straight blues playing in both the minor and major pentatonictwelve bar blues-type progressions. In AC/DC's earlier recordings, power chords can be heard in songs such as "T.N.T." and "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)". He also utilises touches of Scottish folk in his playing, and pull-off arpeggios (pull-offs played one-handed) are a popular trick, appearing in songs such as "Who Made Who", "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap", "Sin City", and live renditions of "Let There Be Rock". In 1976, the band recorded an instrumental arrangement of the Scottish traditional song "Loch Lomond", retitled "Fling Thing", which has appeared in their stage act over the years. The title refers to the Highland Fling. Young occasionally provides backing vocals along with Malcolm on songs such as "T.N.T." and "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap".[8]

A common criticism of AC/DC is that their songs are excessively simple and formulaic. In reply, Young stated in an interview with the Atlanta Gazette in 1979: "It's just rock and roll. A lot of times we get criticised for it. A lot of music papers come out with: 'When are they going to stop playing these three chords?' If you believe you shouldn't play just three chords it's pretty silly on their part. To us, the simpler a song is, the better, 'cause it's more in line with what the person on the street is."

Young is famous for his wild onstage antics, such as intense jumps and running back and forth across the stage. Once, he would clamber onto Bon Scott's or Brian Johnson's shoulders during concerts and they would make their way through the audience with smoke streaming from a satchel on Young's back, while he played an extended improvised guitar solo, usually during the song "Rocker" with Scott[32] or "Let There Be Rock" with Johnson.[33] He frequently does his own version of Chuck Berry's duck walk,[34] as well as a "spasm" during which he throws himself to the ground, kicking, shaking, and spinning in circles while playing the guitar.[35] In earlier years he might remove his jacket and shirt mid-song as a form of 'striptease' to the confused bemusement of the crowd.[36]

Young was advised by older brother George that, if he ever tripped over his guitar cable, to keep playing and make it look like part of the act.[8] Young also included a sort of striptease as part of a mid-show ritual, during which he slowly took off his schoolboy outfit, running across the stage to elicit cheers from the audience, culminating in a "mooning" gesture to expose his underwear, generally chosen with the colours of the local flag or occasionally offering a brief glimpse of his bare buttocks. He would then grab his guitar and play the remainder of the show topless. According to AC/DC video director David Mallet, although Young performs many of his trademark feats sometimes from a series of platforms, risers, and ramps, he suffers from a fear of heights; this was discovered when Mallet chose to have Young lowered from a second story balcony onto a stage floor by wires for the video for "Who Made Who".[37]

The impossible return of AC/DC: 'You could feel the electricity in the air'

At the end of an AC/DC show, Angus Young has a routine. After a couple of hours of perpetual motion in his schoolboy outfit, he heads straight for the shower and then, because he hasn’t been able to eat since noon – you can’t do an AC/DC show on a full stomach – he looks for food. “The first thing that enters my head is: I’m starving.”

When he left the stage of the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on 20 September 2016 – the last night of the Rock or Bust tour – he might have been running through that routine for the last time in the band’s then 43-year history. The final 23 shows had been completed with Axl Rose as singer (brilliantly, it must be said), after hearing problems had forced Brian Johnson to retire from the road; he could no longer find his pitch onstage, and every show made his hearing worse. That summer, their bassist Cliff Williams had said he, too, would be leaving the band.

Drummer Phil Rudd, the longest-serving member bar Young, had not even made it on to the tour, after getting himself involved in what Young had called “a bit of a pickle”: pleading guilty in a New Zealand court to charges of threatening to kill his personal assistant, plus possession of methamphetamine and cannabis. Angus’s brother Malcolm – the band’s de facto leader – had already left, owing to dementia, to be replaced by their nephew Stevie. Little more than a year after that final show, Malcolm was dead.

So when, in September 2018, photos emerged of AC/DC – including Johnson, Williams and Rudd – together at a Vancouver studio, it seemed miraculous. Johnson, his hearing now much better thanks to what he calls a pair of “prosthetic eardrums”, agrees. “It just shows the resilience and the bond that exists between us. We walked into the studio, and you could feel the electricity in the air. And, of course, Malcolm was there. He was there in such a strong spirit that it was palpable. I think everybody could feel it.”

When Williams is asked if he had expected it to happen, his answer is rather more to the point. “No,” he says, simply, and bursts into laughter. But Young – since Malcolm’s retirement, the band’s undisputed kingpin – says he had always thought their story was not necessarily over. “I figured at some point either the record company or somebody would say to me: ‘Do you think you could put something together?’’ So I had that in the back of my head. But putting out newer material, I hadn’t really given that a thought.”

But here we are with Power Up, the band’s 17th studio album, and it is a good bit better than one might have feared. It would be unreasonable to expect another Powerage, Highway to Hell or Back in Black at this point, but Power Up is a genuinely decent album, a lot better than their last few. There are even surprises: Through the Mists of Time is curiously reminiscent of a mid-tempo track from an early REM album, albeit played by a hard rock band.

It kept flashing through my mind: ‘Is this how Malcolm wants it?' We don’t want to sound gooey but facts is facts
Brian Johnson

“I still get goosebumps when I hear that song,” Johnson says. “I can hear Malcolm through that song. It’s a throwback to the days when rock’n’roll was so much fun and we were younger and it just seemed like nothing would end and it was always gonna be life in the early 80s, before Aids, before all that. And when I listen to it, it’s almost like time travel.”

The origins of Power Up date back to the early years of this century. After the tour for Stiff Upper Lip ended in 2001, the band were silent for seven years, but Angus and Malcolm set to work on writing not just whole songs, but extra riffs, hooks and choruses. Young says they spent five years in the studio together accumulating material, with 2008’s Black Ice the first album made from those writing sessions.

Had Malcolm already been diagnosed with dementia? Were they stockpiling against the day when he wouldn’t be able to write? “There was the odd moment towards the end of that time … you could see something was not right. But he still held himself together pretty good,” says Young. “So for this album I was determined to use some of the strong ideas he had put a lot of effort into. I thought: ‘He knows me better than anyone,’ and he was my audience whenever I had my own ideas. And he used me as the same. Sometimes he might write something and he would go: ‘Is that too clever?’ And I would go: ‘No!’”

Young says he went into the studio to make Power Up with songs – all credited to Young and Young – pretty much complete, although Williams has a slightly different recollection: “Ang and Mal had a big pool of ideas for riffs and stuff that Angus pulls from. He identified 12 of them, and we worked them up in the studio.”

Johnson adds: “When we were in the studio, and I was trying out singing certain lines, it just kept flashing through my mind: ‘Is this how Malcolm wants this song?’ Malcolm was a strong character. He just commanded respect without even trying. And even though he’s not with us any more, it’s still there. We don’t want to sound gooey, but facts is facts.”

The appeal of AC/DC is not just in the riffs, the school uniform, the cannons, and the volume. It is also the sense of camaraderie they project. That is not to say they have all been best friends since the day they met (although Williams and Johnson are famously close), because the Young brothers were always spectacularly ruthless in their decisions about what was for the best. It is more that AC/DC represented a place – and their shows were that place – where the only thing that mattered was being among the likeminded and having a party.

The events of 2016 rather undercut that, especially in the notably terse statement announcing Johnson’s departure (since expunged from the internet). In its wake, one friend of Johnson’s told the press the singer felt “kicked to the kerb”, and many fans felt he had been hard done by.

Your body lets you down and your confidence goes. You can’t have that in AC/DC; you’ve got to be front and centre
Brian Johnson

“You can always in hindsight say it could have been done better,” Young admits. “But the situation was: what do we do in an emergency? I didn’t want to be sitting down with a bunch of legal people; that’s not my idea of a fun trip.”

Johnson himself issued a statement denying he had been sidelined, and now says he supported the band’s decision to carry on without him. “It’s this awful feeling where you’re letting the boys in the band down,” he says. “You’re letting yourself down, the punters down, and your confidence goes. And you can’t have that in a band like AC/DC; you’ve got to be front and centre, you can’t hide behind Angus all the time. Your body has let you down: it happens to footballers, to sportsmen. I wasn’t anything special. It was my turn and that was it.”

Then there was Williams going, which at the time he attributed to suffering from vertigo, rendering touring a nightmare, but which many fans believed to be a gesture of support for Johnson. Certainly, when I ask if he would have stayed had it not been for the turmoil, he doesn’t mention vertigo. “We started the Rock and Bust tour without Phil, and it went from there. So it was a slow process for me in my own mind thinking: this is it, I’m done.”

Curiously, though, the departure of Rudd – who I was not permitted to speak to – might have hit the hardest. No one else who has sat in the band has ever found the deep pockets of sound he finds for his drumming. As Johnson puts it: “When Cliff and Phil link up, I’m sorry mate, but it’s difficult to find anything like it.”

When reports of his crimes came through – including a charge of attempting to procure murder, which was withdrawn for lack of evidence – the band were shocked. “I was having a cup of coffee,” Johnson says. “And there was Phil on the screen, and I’m going: ‘What?’ Phil was in a bad place then. He was taking some bad cocktails [of drugs] or something.” Indeed, photos at the time of his arrest showed a man who looked completely hollowed out; he was eventually sentenced to eight months’ house arrest. “That’s not the Phil we know. Phil’s just the funniest, driest guy I know. I was just so sad. But thankfully now he’s as fit as a butcher’s dog,” says Johnson.

Rudd’s route back came via Malcom Young’s funeral in September 2017. “I had seen Phil at Mal’s funeral and he looked great,” Angus says. “He told me he’d been working with these rehab people, and he still has contact with the people who were helping him. I said: ‘As soon as I’ve got the material together, we’ll hook up.’”

If it wasn’t for Brian and Phil being there, I wouldn’t have been there. It’s as close to the band as we could get
Cliff Williams

One might imagine, though, that reassembling the band required the personal touch from Angus. One would be wrong. “Angus talked to the management and management got in touch with each one of us individually,” Johnson says. Young – speaking on a separate call from Johnson and Williams – frames it a little differently. “Brian got a hold of me and let me know that if I was going to be doing anything, he’d like to be involved.”

Once they reconvened, they say it fell into place quickly, though they would be unlikely to say anything else, given they are promoting what’s going to be one of the year’s biggest rock albums. “It was natural,” Williams says. “We’ve been together so long it was not an easing-in process or anything. We obviously had to scrape some moss off, but it came together pretty quickly.”

Angus Young probably could have made Power Up with Stevie Young plus a soundalike singer and a hired rhythm section. After all, the AC/DC brand has survived upheavals that would make most bands crumble, notably the death of Johnson’s predecessor, Bon Scott, in February 1980. And the 2016 shows with Axl Rose (and Chris Slade on drums) were truly fantastic. “We didn’t know Axl,” Williams says, “but he did a great job, got us through.” He says “it was a different vibe, completely”, but has “nothing but positives for Axl; he was very respectful, he worked hard, there was no bullshit.”

Rose did however start calling out for old, little-rehearsed songs, with barely any notice. “He would lay it on you just as you were going on: OK, we can do that,” Young says. “The guy who does my guitars had played some of those songs, and I said, ‘You shout out how I begin it, will you?’ I was praying that we got through it. As Axl says, he’d never rehearsed in his life.”

But for a new AC/DC album to be a real AC/DC album in the eyes of fans, it needed more connections to the band’s history than just Angus Young. Williams says that “if it wasn’t for Brian and Phil being there, I wouldn’t have been there. It’s as close to the band as we could get.” Does Young believe he could have called Power Up an AC/DC record without their presence? His answer goes back to Malcolm, reflects on the unique guitar sounds of Pete Townshend and Keith Richards, and has nothing to do with the question put to him. Which rather suggests he knows he had to have them on board, but that he doesn’t want to have to say so, because it is, after all, his band.

With the album done, they needed to work out one last thing: could Johnson still sing live? “We all gathered in Holland at a rehearsal place. We wanted battlefield conditions,” Johnson says. “So the boys put the whole backline up, and I put these prosthetic eardrum things in. It was just life changing. I could hear everything; I can’t tell you how good that feeling was.”

“So we did the first song, and he was thumbs up,” Young remembers. “He wanted to do more of it. That’s the most eager and excited I’ve seen him in years.”

Of course, the state of the world means he is going to have to wait a little longer. But one day, hopefully before very long, 11 o’clock at night will come, and a wrung-out Angus Young will leave a stage somewhere, clad only in his shorts, socks and shoes, hair plastered to his head. He’ll take a shower and wonder what he can get to eat.

AC/DC - Angus!

'We never know what comes tomorrow': AC/DC on overcoming loss, health struggles for new album 'Power Up'

AC/DC have been on the highway to hell and back. 

In 2016, longtime vocalist Brian Johnson was forced to leave the band midtour after suffering severe hearing loss, which doctors warned could lead to total deafness. Then bassist Cliff Williams announced he was quitting, citing a much-needed break. This was all after drummer Phil Rudd bowed out in 2015 due to myriad legal problems, and founding member Malcolm Young retired in 2014 due to a dementia diagnosis. He died of effects of the disease in 2017 at age 64. 

After so much sadness and strife, lead guitarist Angus Young had doubts AC/DC would ever reunite. 

"The world's always an unknown thing. We never know what comes tomorrow," Young tells USA TODAY. "You think, 'Maybe one day we'll all get back together, get an album and strum on that stage.'"

'I think he would be proud':AC/DC on comeback single, paying tribute to late Malcolm Young

Although live music is largely on hold due to COVID-19, the Australian hard-rock icons did manage two of those three things. The band's 17th studio album, "Power Up," is out now, marking their first original effort since 2014's "Rock or Bust." The rollicking new music reassembles Young, Johnson, Rudd and Williams, along with rhythm guitarist Stevie Young, who stepped in for his uncle Malcolm six years ago. 

The idea for "Power Up" came about in 2018, when AC/DC's management approached Angus Young about doing another album. He and Malcolm had written but never recorded a number of songs, which he wanted to dust off as a tribute to his late older brother. 

"We always thought, 'Well, we'll get these on the next album,' but never (did)," says Young, 65. "So I thought, 'This is probably a good time to get some of them, see if they need any vamping up and put them out there.'"

Brian Johnson, left, and Angus Young, of AC/DC, perform in Chicago in 2016. Their new album "Power Up" is out Friday.

Luckily, it didn't take much convincing to get the band back together. Thanks to some revolutionary hearing aid technology, which Johnson can't speak about due to a nondisclosure agreement, the singer was able to safely rejoin and record with the group. 

"We've pretty much got it licked with this new equipment," Johnson, 73, says of his hearing loss. "Angus and management phoned and said, 'You fancy getting together?' I just grabbed it with both hands and said, 'Absolutely, I'd love a shot at doing that.' You don't realize sometimes how much you miss things. I missed the boys, and the way the boys make music. So it didn't take much to get me. I was on board straight away."

Williams, 70, was equally eager to come back into the fold after his sudden departure in 2016. 

"I had a couple of medical issues and that would've been a tough tour to finish, quite frankly. At the end of it, I was kind of done," he says. "So when this came about, I definitely wanted to do it. I was happy for the opportunity to be involved."

Raucous opening track "Realize" was the first song they recorded for the 12-track effort, which was made in Vancouver in late 2018 and early 2019. The album was preceded by cheeky lead single "Shot in the Dark" last month, which hit No. 1 on the Billboard mainstream rock songs chart this week (their first to top the chart since 2008's "Rock N Roll Train"). 

Johnson says they're "busting" to get back out in front of a live audience to play "Power Up" for the fans. While that's all pandemic-dependent, Young has no intention of slowing down or retiring any time soon. 

"I just keep going. I'd like to keep making music, so I never really think of that," Young says. He points to his brother Malcolm, a "practical guy" who encouraged him to power through the toughest or most improbable situations. 

"I could always dream up stuff to do off the top of my head, but he would always do the best to make it practical," Young says. "He was always one to try and get through a show. He'd always say, 'Try and finish what you're doing.' That basically kept me going." 

"Power Up" comes 40 years after the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers released their breakthrough, 1980's "Back in Black." The album was the first without late lead singer Bon Scott, who died of alcohol poisoning earlier that year. Along with the title track, it included head-banging signature songs such as "You Shook Me All Night Long," "Hells Bells" and "Shoot to Thrill." 

"'Back in Black' was really a tribute to Bon," Young recalls. "Brian was our new front man and vocalist, and we really didn't know how it would be received. It was good that it became well-received and it's still a very popular album that's lasted through the last 40 years."

"I was working with the lads for the first time, so for me, it was just fantastic," Johnson adds. "Every time I hear them, those songs still sound fresh. It's unbelievable."

Angus young happened to what

AC/DC's Angus Young on decline of his late brother Malcolm from dementia

Guitarist of legendary Australian rock band AC/DC, Malcolm Young, passed away at age 64 in November 2017 after a three-year battle with dementia.

Appearing on Sunday's episode of Australian 60 Minutes, an emotional Angus Young spoke about his brother's decline in health, after Malcolm's retirement from the band in 2014. 

Angus, 65, who co-founded AC/DC with Malcolm, said the 'hardest part was not so much him passing', but rather watching his deterioration.

'I think the hardest part was not so much him passing because that was a kind of end, the relief. I think the worst part's the decline,' Angus explained to journalist Allison Langdon.

'That's the hard part, because of how you knew him and then to see that that was gone.' 

The Scottish-born star went on to reveal that despite his brother's deteriorating health, certain aspects of his personality still remained.

'I would say, even to the end, he was still... if I was there, he had a big smile. And I think that was probably... that always gave me a kind of joy. 

'Even though he was in that state, that was always the joy,' he continued.  

Following Malcolm's death in 2017, AC/DC released a statement that said: 'Today it is with deep sadness that AC/DC has to announce the passing of Malcolm Young.  

'Malcolm, along with Angus, was the founder and creator of AC/DC. With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band.

'As a guitarist, songwriter and visionary he was a perfectionist and a unique man. He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted. 

'He took great pride in all that he endeavoured. His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed.' 

Angus also said at the time: 'As his brother it is hard to express in words what he has meant to me during my life, the bond we had was unique and very special. 

'He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever. Malcolm, job well done.' 

Reflection: 'I would say, even to the end, he was still... if I was there, he had a big smile. And I think that was probably... that always gave me a kind of joy,' Angus said. Malcolm is pictured in 2009

Revisiting AC/DC's Chaotic 'Rock or Bust' Tour

Angus Young opened up about his brother Malcolm Young’s final days, struggling through tears to tell of the mixed emotions of the time.

Malcolm died in 2017 after dementia had forced him to retire from AC/DC. He was also suffering from other health problems.

“I think the hardest part was not so much in parting, because that was a kind of end, you know – the relief,” Angus told 60 Minutes Australia. “The decline, that’s the hard part, because you knew him, and then to see that was gone.”

After a heavy breath he continued: “Even to the end … if I was there, from here to here he had a big smile. And I think that was probably … for me, that always gave me a kind of joy, even though he was in that state. That was always the joy of it.”

Young added that his brother "always got a great kick if I played him guitar. He would try to tap his foot. But he always knew I was there. … I was with him toward the end.” He noted it was “important” to spend that time with Malcolm.

You can watch the interview below.

Both Angus and singer Brian Johnson, who was taking part in the interview from another studio, appeared visibly moved as they spoke. Asked about having lost a brother in Malcolm, Johnson said: “Very emotional when he went. It’s all too soon, isn’t it? Too quick and too soon.”

Johnson previously recalled that the genesis for the AC/DC reunion that led to the release of their new album Power Up took place at Malcolm’s funeral. “That was a lovely day,” he said. “The band members sat together and talked. I'm not a religious or spiritual kind of person, but it's so obvious now that something happened.”

Now discussing:

AC/DC's ANGUS YOUNG On BON SCOTT's Death: 'It Was A Shock To Us All'

February 22, 2021

AC/DC's ANGUS YOUNG On BON SCOTT's Death: 'It Was A Shock To Us All'

AC/DC's Angus Young and Brian Johnson join Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Essentials Radio to discuss their most celebrated songs, like "Highway To Hell" and "It's A Long Way To The Top"; one of the most successful albums of all time, "Back In Black"; dealing with the loss of bandmate and lead vocalist Bon Scott; and the addition of Brian to the band. You can now watch highlights from the chat below.

Speaking about how AC/DC was affected by Scott's untimely 1980 death, Angus said: "It was like it put you in shock, because you always kind of think the people around you and being young, you have that thing of you're almost kind of fearless and a little bit of... I don't know what it is when you're in your youth — you don't think of dying. And so it was a kind of shock to us all and it affected everyone in different ways. But the one element of it that held it probably together for me is [founding AC/DC rhythm guitarist and Angus's brother] Malcolm, because after a few weeks, he called me and he said, 'What are you doing?' And I just said, 'I'm just moping about it, Mal.' And he said, 'Listen, why don't the two of us do what we were doing before?', which was we'd been in a rehearsal room. It's strange — that was one of the last places that we had seen Bon, was in the rehearsal room. And he said, 'Why don't the two of us go back to that and just work on songs and ideas and just sit and do that?' And I thought, 'Okay, I'll give it a shot.' So that's what the two of us did that kept us going through the whole process, because he said, 'We won't think of anything. We'll just do that. We won't think of what we're going to do. We'll shut off managers and record people and whatnot. We just shut all of that away and just concentrate on, focus on doing these song ideas.' And that's what we did."

Scott was invited to join AC/DC by Malcolm and Angus Young in 1974, and achieved international stardom before his death at the age of 33 from alcohol poisoning.

He sang on AC/DC's first six studio albums, including "High Voltage", "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap", "Let There Be Rock" and "Highway To Hell".

Scott died of acute alcohol poisoning after a night of heavy drinking at a club in London, just days after attending a session with Malcolm and Angus Young where they began working on music for what became the "Back In Black" album.

According to the AC/DC FAQ web site, Bon and the friend, a musician named Alisdair Kinnear, had been drinking the evening of February 19, 1980 and Bon apparently fell asleep during the ride home. Kinnear could not wake Bon, so he left him in the car to sleep. Kinnear awoke early in the evening on February 20, checked on Bon, and found him unconscious in the car. Bon could not be revived, and was pronounced dead.

Angus told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that the band almost didn't get past Scott's death. "Bon was the big… He was a full-on frontman, plus he had this great character, you know. I mean, he just lived that rock 'n' roll life. With Bon, what you saw was what you got, and, yeah, it was pretty, pretty tough."

In a 2010 interview, Angus stated about Bon's influence on the band more than three decades after the singer's death: "I think it's just something that is part of you. It's like you lost someone close to you, in your family or a very close friend. You've always got that feeling they're there but you just, I suppose, miss them in the physical sense. There's always memories that keep coming back to you, and it doesn't matter what the situation is. You could be traveling, you could be relaxing somewhere, or going to play or being in the studio, there's always something that reminds you."
