Celebrating his 62nd birthday on March 31st, Angus Young is one of rock and roll’s most easily recognizable figures. With his posh schoolboy outfit that’s as timeless as “Back In Black” and signature Gibson SG guitar, it’s impossible to miss the 5’2” powerhouse in any setting! He’s written some of the most iconic guitar riffs in history, and what began as never being allowed to jam with big brother Malcolm turned into one of the biggest rock and roll enterprises on the planet.
He’s loved by music fans young and old, fiercely respected by his bandmates and industry colleagues, and that’s why on the legend’s 62nd birthday we’re taking a look back at 7 things we love about AC/DC’s fearless leader. For those about to blow out the birthday candles, we salute you!
