It was September 16, 2016, when we saw AC/DC finishing their Rock Or Bust tour with a sold-out show at the Wells Fargo Centre in Philadelphia, PA. Since then, our eyes are waiting to see the band together. Well, a new picture of the reunited band is finally out where we see the members looking older yet full of energy.
In the photo, we see the lead guitarist Angus Young who is now 65 but still looking stunner in the schoolboy uniform. Have a look at the picture here.
Well, the above picture has filled us with a lot of excitement. According to Variety, Guitarist Malcolm Young, the group’s leader and Angus’ brother, passed away in 2017, after years of dementia that had seen him replaced by nephew Stevie Young, who fills out the current lineup.
