Angus Young Net Worth $140 Million

Angus McKinnon Young, better known to the world as Angus Young, was born in 1955 in Scotland. From a very young age Angus was interested in music and started to learn how to play the guitar. Later, Angus became a part of the group,called “Kantuckee”. Other members of this group were Jon Stevens, Trevor James and Bob McGlynn. When Young was only 18 years old, he and his brother formed the group now known as “AC/DC”. The recent members of this group are Phil Rudd, Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams, Stevie Young and of course Angus Young. The first single that the band released was called “Can I Sit Next To You Girl”. It was the time when Angus Young’s net worth began to grow.

In 1975, “AC/DC” released their first album, entitled “High Voltage”. It included such songs as “Baby, Please Don’t Go”, “Little Lover”, “You Ain’t Got a Hold on Me” and others. In 1979 they released one of their most successful albums “Highway to Hell”. This album had a huge impact on the growth of Angus Young’s net worth. Other albums that have been released by “AC/DC” include “Back in Black”, “Fly on the Wall”, “Stiff Upper Lip” and many others. In 2003 the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

In addition to this, Angus has also collaborated with the Gibson Guitar Corporation and they created the Angus Young SG. This also added to Angus’ net worth. When Angus was asked who influenced him to start a career as a musician, he said that the biggest influences in his life were his brother, Freddie King, Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters and Keith Richards.

All in all, one can say that Angus Young is one of the best musicians of all time and that “AC/DC” is well known all over the world and they have a huge following of fans. Angus will probably continue to create music and perform together with “AC/DC” for a long time. As mentioned before, there is also a chance that Angus Young’s net worth will become even higher in the future. Let’s hope that the “AC/DC” will not disband for a very long time to come.

Quotes

#Quote
1I've always looked at it as a twelve-step-program rock 'n' roll band: each day at a time.
2We can't sit on our arses and say the world owes us a living because we've paid our dues. Me; I think if I fluff a note I'm robbing the kids. You're gonna pour it all on until you drop, so even if they hate you they can still say 'At least they tried'.
