Angus McKinnon Young (born March 31, 1955 in Glasgow, Scotland) is a rock guitarist who has been a member of Australian hard rock band AC/DC since the group was formed in 1973. Angus is known for his hard-edge blues style lead (and signature vibrato), wild stage energy, and schoolboy clothing style.
Angus started playing guitar when he was about five. Another kid who lived nearby had one, and Angus would come over and play on it. He got his own "guitar" by taking a banjo his ily had lying and the house and restrainging ita guitar. He didn't really get into guitar playing, thoguh, until his early teens. He got his first Gibson SG after seeing it in a friend's catalogue. Until then, he had been playing on an old Hofner guitar he got when his brother Malcolm got his Gretsch Jet Firebird.
