Happy 60th Birthday Angus Young | Live AC/DC Treasure Trove

Advertisement
AC/DC founding guitarist Angus Young turns 60 today. The Scottish-born, Australian-raised rocker is as recognizable for his blistering guitar licks as he is for the donning his trademark Ashfield Boys High School uniform while performing on stage. Along with his brother Malcolm, the Young brothers developed a signature hard rock sound that defined what would become one of the world’s most popular bands.Though AC/DC has sold hundreds of millions of records in their long career, Angus’ onstage antics remain nearly as recognizable as the Aussie rockers’ many, many hits. 


The acdcVEVO account has a treasure trove of live footage of Angus & Co. from throughout their over 40 years as a band. Below are six clips in honor of the duckwalking shredder’s 60th trip around the sun showcasing some of his most exhilarating guitar playing in venues around the globe.
