VALE George Young

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 .

R.I.P mate!
