Lead guitarist and co-founder of the legendary AC/DC, Angus Young spoke with Matt Pinfield for the latest installment of the New & Approved series.
Virtually connecting from his Australian studio, Angus took some time to speak on the newest AC/DC offering with the ‘Power Up” album, the 45th anniversary of ‘High Voltage, the impact Malcolm Young left on the legacy of AC/DC, and much more.
As the pandemic has greatly affected the world, Angus tells Pinfield that their 2020 album release included work from the late Malcolm Young, who passed in 2017. The new album came together over the past few years and highlights Malcolm’s efforts as Angus wanted to make sure that selected songs on the project were up to Malcolm’s standard.
With three generations of Youngs in the AC/DC legacy, Angus goes on to speak on what it meant to add his nephew Stevie to the family business, hopes to tour once the pandemic settles, and share memories of recording the band’s first internationally released studio album ‘High Voltage’.
