AC/DC’s STEVIE YOUNG: ‘I’m Not Trying To Imitate Or Copy’ MALCOLM!
AC/DC have uploaded a two-minute video clip in which rhythm guitarist Stevie Young talks about his playing style and his role in the band.
Stevie Young, the nephew of guitarists Angus and Malcolm Young, took Malcolm‘s place in the band prior to the recording of the group’s 16th studio album, “Rock Or Bust”.
Said Stevie: “I come from a musical family. My dad and all my brothers played an instrument, mostly guitars. So there was all these instruments [laying] around. You picked it up and played it away. There was always people to show you how to get on with it.
“I work out stuff all the time; I keep working away,” he added. “Every day I listen and try to find bits that I missed or something that Malcolm did that would help with what’s [going on] in the tunes. I’m not trying to imitate or copy him, but trying to keep the spirit of what he did in the band.”
Stevie Young played with AC/DC once before during a 1988 tour, while Malcolm stepped out to deal with his dependency on alcohol.
