"WE USED TO DO Y'KNOW SOMETIMES 15-16 SHOWS IN A WEEK WHEN WE STARTED... THERE WAS A LOT OF B.O. GOING AROUND"
Malcolm Young was never the most willing interviewee, but here's a couple of fairly enlightening pieces we came across while immersing ourselves in AC/DC following the announcement of his passing over the weekend.
The sound is a bit out of sync in the first one, but this rare bit of footage is the only one we know to include interviews with four of the Young siblings; George, Malcolm, Angus and sister Margaret, who talks about making Angus' stage school uniforms. With Malcolm and of course George both now gone, it's nice to hear them talk family and AC/DC's musical roots.
This one is even fuzzier but it's the longest exclusively Malcolm interview we could find. It's from 1988 and it's great to hear him talk about the band's resurgence at the time ("It's nice to appeal to a number of generations without getting too many wrinkles ourselves"). It's cool too to see the great enthusiasm with which he talks about the old rock'n'roll and blues that inspired the band.
(If anyone could provide us with more details about where these interviews come from - the YouTube postings don't offer much - it would be great to know.)
