In a recent talk with NME, AC/DC guitarist Angus Young said that the band’s new album, ”Power Up”, is a tribute to Angus brother, Malcolm Young.
Here’s what the guitarist said:
“His death was a huge blow to us. But I still think he’s there when I’m playing. It sounds funny, but I can still feel him communicating to me when I’m playing guitar.”
Also, vocalist Brian Johnson commented:
“With Malcolm, you’ve got to go back to the beginning when he turned to Angus and said, ‘C’mon, we’ve got to start a band. There’s too much soft music around. I wanna play some rock and roll!’ He was uncompromising in his ethic. If it wasn’t rock and roll, Malcolm didn’t care for it.
He’s left us — but he’s still there. In the studio and in everything he did. We’re all very aware of that. When your target is to pay tribute to Malcolm, you just really want to do well and you don’t want to let anyone down.”
