Guitar Legends Angus, Malcolm Young To Discuss Highway To Hell On Redbeard's In The Studio This Month
AC/DC mainmen/guitarists Angus Young and his brother Malcolm Young will be guests on In The Studio - The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands - during the week of August 31st.
They will be discussing the 30th Anniversary of their legendary 1979 album Highway To Hell with professional radio broadcaster and rock musician interviewer Redbeard. More details on In The Studio can be found at this location.
The annual APRA (Australasian Performing Right Association) awards were held in Melbourne on June 23rd. AC/DC won the Most Played Australian Work Overseas category with the song 'Highway To Hell'.
The song was written by Bon Scott, Angus Young and Malcolm Young while the main guitar riff was created by Malcolm Young. According to Wikipedia, the song and album's title supposedly came after a reporter asked band members if they could describe what life was like being constantly on tour. Angus replied that it was "a fucking highway to hell."
