Hard Rock band from Australia, formed in 1973 by Angus and Malcolm Young, they teamed up with Dave Evans (vocals), Larry Van Kriedt (bass) and Colin Burgess (drums).

In 1974 both Larry Van Kriedt and Colin Burgess left and were replaced by Rob Bailey (bass) and Peter Clack (drums), a further change in 1974 saw Peter Clack leave and Tony Currenti (drums) join the band. In June 1974 they were signed by Harry Vanda & George Young (Malcolm & Angus's brother) to Albert Productions. In November 1974, Dave Evans left the band and was replaced by Bon Scott (vocals & bagpipes). Rob Bailey also left in 1974 and was replaced by George Young (bass). In 1975 Phil Rudd (drums) replaced Tony Currenti and Mark Evans (bass) replaced George Young. In June 1977 Mark Evans left and is replaced by Cliff Williams (bass) for their first tour of the USA. On the 19 Feb 1980 Bon Scott died at the age of 33. Brian Johnson (ex Geordie) joined the band to replace him on vocals and the album "Back In Black" was released, a tribute to Bon Scott, this album became the 2nd largest selling album of all time with over 40 million copies sold worldwide. In May 1983, Phil Rudd had a parting of the ways and was replaced by Simon Wright (drums), aged 20 then. November 1989 Simon Wright left and is replaced by Chris Slade (ex Manfred Mann's Earth Band, Uriah Heep & The Firm). In summer 1994 Phil Rudd "quietly" rejoined the band, but left again in 2015, which led to Slade's return. Malcolm Young left AC/DC in 2014 for health reasons. Brian Johnson was forced to stop touring in April 2016 because of hearing issues. To complete the 2016 tour dates, Axl Rose was recruited as a guest singer.

Why is axl listed as a band member he is a touring member not an official band member

Echoing the AC/DC vs. other bands.. I can positively say that AC/DC never set out to be a complex band to break any rules that was not already broken. Pink Floyd and Zep both dabbled into the psychedelia in rock music. They invented or re-invented what they did. AccaDacca only wanted to do one thing, and that was playing balls-to-the-wall Rock`n Roll with simple power-chords and catchy riffs. And they did so with great success.
You play AC/DC at drinking parties or when you want to shake loose. I don´t listen to them for finesse. Floyd and Zep followed a whole different concept in rock music for a slight different audience, Floyd more so.. AC/DC? Just NO!

Repetitive and linear? I guess you could say the same about Motorhead. By why change a formula that works. Someone is got to hold the candle..
Easy music sure.. I guess for AC/DC, anyone could play Bass or drums for them.. But you can not replace Angus or Malcom.
Bon Scott era is my best era.. It was pure energy. "Powerage" was my first ever vinyl record that was mine.. and i loved that album to death..

I don´t think AC/DC will ever go on tour again. Is just Angus left now. Malcom died recently, Rudd is struggling with the law, Cliff pulled out..
AC/DC is not going to rock anymore.. they are bust.

A large-scale "Rock or Bust" survey taken from attendants of AC/DC concerts showed a substantial preference of rock over bust.

Have to agree with tom1963 love DC but zeppelin and Floyd are in another league

Man how ridiculous.... I can't believe some of the comments I am reading below..... AC/DC fans actually trying to say that Led Zeppelin & Pink Floyd are inferior bands compared to AC/DC... I have been an AC/DC fan from the beginning of the bands days with Bon Scott & I absolutely love the band but these comments claiming AC/DC are better then Zeppelin & Pink Floyd is just crazy... I'm a huge AC/DC fan & there is no way I could sit here & expect anyone to take me seriously by saying that AC/DC are a better band then Zeppelin or Floyd...

RIP Bon Scott. Never to be forgotten. The best ever


February 5, 2016
Great band, but very repetitive, shallow and of no real cultural value at real statement, just shallow repetitive music.
Pink Floyd are the best


November 27, 2015
Riff Raff,Sin City,Rock n Roll Damnation are AC/DC at their best.R.I.P Bon.
