Executive summary: Schoolboy-clad guitarist for AC/DC

After working with various short-lived bands around Sydney, Angus Young joined up with his brother Malcolm in 1973 to form AC/DC. The band went through numerous line-up changes before settling on the one that would record their debut LP High Voltage. By 1979, AC/DC had established worldwide popularity, particularly with the release of Highway to Hell. The band's personnel has changed continuously since it's inception, with Angus -- in his trademark schoolboy uniform and performing a Chuck Berry-style shuffle with his guitar -- remaining the most immediately recognizable member.
