AC/DC (aka ACϟDC) is an Australian band that has weathered many storms from their formation to being amongst the greatest music acts in history. For instance, their 2020 lineup only consists of one of the band’s original members, that being guitarist Angus Young. Their other co-founder, his brother Malcolm Young, was ill for years and ultimately passed away in 2017. Prior to that they experienced another major death when their lead singer, Bon Scott, died in 1980. Of course when the frontman of a band dies, many groups call it quits. And AC/DC considered such in the wake of Scott’s premature death. However, they replaced him with Brian Johnson, who held down the lead role for a good 25 years.
After Johnson himself retired from the band due to health issues, he was replaced by none other than Axl Rose of Guns N’ Roses fame. You can pull off those kinds of moves when, like AC/DC, you’re amongst the greatest rock groups in history. And their 2020 roster is rounded off by guitarist Stevie Young and drummer Chris Slade, who have respectively been affiliated with the band since 1988 and 1989.
The band’s 1979 classic “Highway to Hell” is one of their most significant tracks.
