Now in their 60s, AC/DC is still rocking hard and performing in front of sell out crowds all over the world. There are many reasons why they are still going, and the energy Angus Young puts forth every night is one of main reasons.
Angus Young, on the other hand, only seemed to become more alive with every minute of the performance. The solo started on stage with the rest of the band, but soon saw Young out on a protruding section of the stage alone with the 44,000 in attendance. The band faded away visually and sonically as Young broke away from the song’s riffs with a rapid-fire bursts of notes all over the neck of his guitar, building tension with each one. He punctuated the deep bends and blistering barrage of notes with chunks of feedback where he taunted the crowd with some Hulk Hogan-esque cupping of his ear.We love it! Young is just as much of a showman as he is a legendary guitarist. To know that he is still performing his heart out every night is a great sign that AC/DC is going to keep writing and performing for as long as they can.
