ANGUS MC KINNON YOUNG-- THE KING OF LEAD GUITARISTS
Two days ago I saw the movie Iron man 2 with my family. Its sound track album was no 1 on UK charts.
Can anybody name a lead guitarist—
--Who is the FRONT MAN OF HIS BAND and in the SPOTLIGHT, instead of the vocalist.
--Who has the most recognized trade mark attire
--Who has natural energy without drinks and drugs-- to be in the zone
--Who write his own songs
--Who during a performance has signature moves like duck walk, on the floor spasms, running back and forth on stage,
--Is part of a band which has sold more than 100 million copies
--Who started playing on stage at the age of 15 and is still going strong after 3.5 decades
--Who sweats bucket loads in a performance, due to his intensity and wild stage energy
--Who does kamikaze guitar pyrotechnics
--Who is the god of guitar , after such a long run
--Who can play the guitar with one hand, holding it high over his head.
As soon as you hear him play, you know it is him. You don't need to see his school uniform.
Yes, it is Angus Young of AC DC.
It is not enough to be good like Jimi Hendrix or Eric Clapton or even a Mark Knopfler.
Rock is all about showmanship , stage presence and kickin’ ass..
