Original AC/DC Singer Recalls Band's First Concert 40 Years Ago
"People were pretty excited about us," Evans says about the band's debut show. "The drummer was Colin Burgess from the famous Masters Apprentices, and they knew that Malcolm and Angus Young were brothers of the famous George Young from the Easybeats."
The as-yet untitled AC/DC played two short sets at Chequers that night - one at about 11.30pm and the second in the early hours of New Year's Day, which was a rather impromptu affair.
"Malcolm said, 'Look, we're about six or seven songs short, so make up some names and we'll put them through the set' type thing, you know," he continued. "And they said, 'Guys and Dave, make up the songs.' So we made up songs on the spot and played them that night." more on this story
