Hi this is Claude Corry speaking. Im the owner of The Blues Guitarist. I want to talk a bit about the great Malcolm Young from AC/DC, the awesome Australian Hard Rock band. I was lucky enough to meet Malcolm when I was still quite young, 25 or so. I meet him at The Rose Shamrock & Thistle Hotel Rozelle Sydney Australia and found him to be such a humble, polite and quiet guy. I was introduced to him by the lead singer of a band that was performing at the pub on a regular basis who I had befriended.
On first meeting him I was lost for words being in the presence of such a legend then he said, G’day, which brought me back to earth a bit. We talked about many things we had in common that night like guitar, music, women and a few other subjects. As I began to relax I realized that he was just a down to earth guy that loved his world of music and being in a band which was very similar to my passion so we got on like a house on fire.
That same night he invited me to his home, or one of them, where his mother was living at the time. I was blown away by his place and his music room full of guitars. We had a drink or two or three or four actually I lost count of how many. I cant even remeber leaving so you know what I mean!
Malcolm Young was a very accomplished musician and guitar player and was a crucial part of the AC/DC sound which the whole world came to love. Malcolm will be a very missed guitarist in many fans hearts and ears.
