AC DC Rock Legends
ACDC - Rock Legends
570mm at the longest edge
AC/DC formed in Sydney in 1973 by Scottish-born brothers Malcolm and Angus Young. Their music has been described as hard rock, blues rock, and, controversially, heavy metal. The group themselves tend to reject genre labels and have defined themselves as "a rock and roll band, nothing more, nothing less.”
Our ACDC collection consists of classic images and I hope to add more soon so watch this space…
My first real ACDC memory is from the mid 80’s walking along a street in norther England during a parade / festival wearing an ACDC T-Shirt (but not knowing a lot about them). I was ‘kidnapped’ by one of the parade floats (off the street) that was a rock music themed float run by a rock / heavy metal radio station. I was only a teenager at the time, and I was immediately given a can of beer and the rest of the day was a blur of rock music and a nightclub party that I would have never gotten into at my age – it was access all areas as the kidnapped kid…. What a great introduction to the sound of ACDC – great memory!
