AC/DC’s Angus Young chatted with Waleed Aly of the Australia’s “The Project” about the band’s style that they never changed.
Here’s what the guitarist said:
“With us, it’s to be expected. As my brother [late AC/DC rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young] used to say, when somebody said, ‘Every album you’ve ever made sounds the same’, he said ‘Yeah. It’s the same band.’ When we started, we weren’t reinventing the wheel. This is what we do best — we make rock and roll.”
Angus also once again confirmed that AC/DC‘s long-awaited comeback album, “Power Up”, is a tribute to Malcolm, who died in 2017 from effects of dementia at age 64. Malcolm is credited as a writer on all 12 tracks on “Power Up”, along with Angus.
“With Malcolm, he would just always get rolling. That was him. A lot of these songs we’d done on this album, a lot of them are tracks he always said, ‘Well, we’ve gotta get these done.’ He always wanted them out there on an album.”
