George Young was a music trailblazer.
He was born in Glasgow Scotland but emigrated to Australia with his younger brothers.
George was instrumental in helping his brothers form AC/DC.
He was guitarist for The Easybeats and wrote their songs.
George and Harry Vanda had a very successful songwriting partnership writing songs for lots of big stars including John Paul Young, Ted Mulry Gang, Mark Williams' big hit Show No Mercy and they even wrote a hit for Meatloaf in the 90's.
They also had their own hits as Flash and The Pan.
George passed away at the age of 70 - thankfully his music lives on .
