That time AC/DC’s Malcolm Young told me where Angus’s schoolboy outfit came from


By Steve Newton

Back in ’83 when I interviewed AC/DC at a Vancouver hotel before the start of the Flick of the Switch tour I asked Malcolm Young whether Angus, as a kid, ever had to wear that schoolboy outfit he’s famous for.

Turns out it was just a way to get attention more than anything else.

Have a listen:
