Formed in Sydney in 1973, the current line-up of AC/DC consists of Brian, 68-year-old guitarist Angus Young, Stevie Young, his cousin, on rhythm guitar, Phil Rudd on drums and bassist Cliff.
Brothers Malcolm and Angus Young started the band and quickly rose to fame with lead singer Bon Scott.
The band produced a string of hits, including It’s a Long Way to the Top (if You Wanna Rock and Rock), Highway to Hell and Dirty Deeds (Done Dirt Cheap).
After Bon’s death from acute alcohol poisoning at the age of 33 in 1980, British-born Brian was hired to replace him.
