(hennemusic) AC/DC were inducted into The Age Music Victoria's Hall Of Fame in Victoria, Australia on November 20. The Age reports the 10tth anniversary event at the Palais Theatre in St. Kilda saw the band honored as one of 10 inductees including the Seekers, Olivia Newton-John, the late radio DJ Stan Rofe, the Palais Theatre and Archie Roach.

In a statement, AC/DC lead guitarist Angus Young said it was "an absolute honor" to be recognized in the 10th year of the Hall of Fame. "Victoria has a special place in our hearts, especially the early years of the band. Thank you for the induction into The Age Music Victoria Hall of Fame."

Music Victoria chief executive Patrick Donovan said AC/DC became "a sensation on Ripponlea-based Countdown as soon as the show exploded colorfully onto national TV" and soon launched themselves on the world.

"Two of the world's best axemen, Angus on lead and Malcolm on rhythm, forging some of the biggest, baddest riffs we'll ever know," said Donovan. "They moved to Melbourne, sharing a rental house in Landsdowne Road, St Kilda where they jammed and practiced, played blues records and wrote songs through the day and night." Read more here.
