AC/DC members, Angus, Malcolm and George Young were all born in Scotland. They are in fact a Scotish band, with only one Australian member - the
dummer after Dave Evans was replaced by Ronald Scott and later on by Brian Johnson who was also English...
They were never an Australian band, because a few members spent a few years there doesn't mean much.
The Young family moved to Australia in 1963. Angus was eight and Malcolm was ten.
Bon Scott was born in Scotland in 1946, his family moved to Australia in 1952, Bon was six. AC/DC was born (in Australia) in 1973. So Angus had spent
most of his life in Australia when the band was formed, Malcolm had lived in both countries an equal amount of time and Bon had lived in Oz for
twenty-one years. Both families are naturalized Australians.
Oh and by the way George Young was never in AC/DC, he was in another seminal Australian band, The Easybeats (but I guess that because George was born
in Scotland that makes them a Scottish band).
Brian Johnson was the worst thing to happen to the band. Talk to any AC/DC purist and ask them when AC/DC made their best music. Seriously, has there
been a better AC/DC album than 'Highway To Hell'?
Get your facts straight before spouting off with such crap.
Oh and I guess I should include my picks:
Rose Tattoo (Australian)
Lubricated Goat (Australian)
