George Young first came to fame as a member of The Easybeats, but that would be just the beginning of one of the most fruitful songwriting and producing careers of anyone, anywhere in the world.
His work with AC/DC, Stevie Wright, Flash and the Pan, John Paul Young and The Angels kept him in the ranks of the most vital figures in rock’n’roll for decades.
George’s younger brother Malcolm Young was the backbone of one of the biggest rock’n’roll bands in history, AC/DC.
While their lead guitarist youngest brother Angus was the show-off, Malcolm took after George in keeping out of the limelight, but contributing so much to the songs and the sound of the iconic band.
He was the man behind those driving riffs that typify the AC/DC sound and influenced just about every rock band in their wake.
Richard Kingsmill takes us through the lives of George and Malcolm Young in The J Files Thursday 23 November from 8pm.
