                  Angus Young's early life

Angus young was born Cranhill,Glasgow Scotland March 31, 1955. His family later moved to Australia in the 60's.Young went to Ash-field Boys High school at the time of his guitar playing But dropped out at the age of fifteen. After his drop out he joined a band called the kantackee line where he played lead guitar. And after that band broke up, he joined AC-DC.  The name AC-DC it means alternating current direct current which wasn't the bands idea. It was Angus's sister Margaret which saw it on a sowing machine way before the band's popularity. And his famous schoolboy outfit, When the band practiced Angus just got back from school so he didn't have time to change (his sister recommended that outfit if they ever got on stage). Angus young was known for his guitar playing, And at his time it was unique. Everyone was copying eddy van hailens style of kamikaze but Angus stuck to the basics of blues rock.

This is my description web

                      Whats with the guitar?

The cause I'm doing is when Angus started playing guitar. one the affect of Angus learning guitar is joining AC-DC. Which gave him so much fame, fortune and a fan base. Another affect is him changing punk rock. Everyone was all into Pink Floyd and eddy van hailen. But he changed it, he changed so many peoples lives by sticking to the basics and not going his own way. It was like a breath of fresh air for lots of people by hearing his music and playing it in there own bands. the third and final affect is that he won so many awards for his extravagant guitar playing, it was like to music to all peoples ears, literally.

My cause/affect chart

                          Angus's life
                          ( Time line )

Angus was born march 1, 1955. As I already said he and his family moved to Australia in the 1960's.  When they were in Australia he joined the best rock and roll band ever AC-DC in 1973. in 1975 They released there debut album High voltage to the whole world to here there great music. Then AC-DC  stepped out of the spot light and let other bands take over the music industries. but that didn't last for long they were put back at the top of the food chain when they released there album Razors Edge in 1990. They kept gaining fame and fortune by sharing there awesome rock with the world, But Angus was not done with the whole rock and roll gigs he still played with AC-DC and traveled the world. But his home  country Australia didn't forget about him in 2012 he gained the title best guitarist. This is not on my timeline but it has to be included. Last November (of 2014) on the 28th they released there new album Rock or Bust witch may be there last because of the trouble their getting into.
