Biography


AC/DC
was formed in December, 1973, in Australia, by guitarist Malcolm Young,
whom had just left his last band, Velvet Underground. He saw first hand all the
benefits that came with being a rock star, as his older brother, George Young,
reach the big time as a member of the popular 1960s band, the Easy beats. He
very much wanted to follow in George's footsteps. Malcolm also could see that
his younger brother, Angus, was a very talented guitar player, even if he was
only 15 years old, and picked him to be the new band's lead guitarist. Because
Angus was still a school boy, his sister suggested that he should wear his
school uniform on stage; so he did, and in time the look would become his trademark.
AC/DC would go through many personnel changes that first year, but by the time
they started to play steady gigs all around Australia, the main lineup
consisted of lead singer Dave Evans, Rob Bailey on bass, Peter Clark on the
drums, along with the two Young brothers. They recorded their first single in
1974 with "Can I Sit Next to You Girl"/"Rockin' In the
Parlour". The song was produced by George, as he would also produce
their future albums.



AC/DC
would soon start recording their debut album, High Voltage, but
before that, Clark and Bailey were let go. They hired their bus driver, Bon
Scott, to replace Clark on the drums, but shortly after that, Dave Evans was
kicked out of the band after he and the Young brothers got into a dispute one
night before a show, which resulted in Evans refusing to take the stage. So
Scott filled in for him and after that night, took over as the band's lead
vocalist. They entered the studio shortly after that, and in just ten days
recorded High Voltage. They still had no set drummer or bassist at
the time, with Tony Kerrante filling in as the drummer, and George
Young playing the bass parts for his brothers on the album. The album was
released in Australia in February of 1975. At that time they added drummer Phil
Rudd, and bassist Mark Evans. AC/DC was now becoming a bit famous in Australia,
and this line-up would stay intact for the next three albums.
