AC/DC's Angus Young Recalls Terrifying First Time was a top 20 story of Sept 2020: AC/DC's lead guitarist Angus Young is known for his trademark school boy uniform and he recently recalled how the first time he played on stage in the getup was terrifying for him and how it inspired his energetic stage antics.

Young donned the outfit for the very first time on stage when in April of 1974 at an open air concert at Victoria Park in Sydney. He was recently asked about it during an interview with Guitar World.

Angus shared, "That was the most frightened I've ever been on stage, but thank God, I had no time to think. I just went straight out there. The crowd's first reaction to the shorts and stuff was like a bunch of fish at feeding time - all mouths open.

"I had just one thing on my mind: I didn't want to be a target for blokes throwing bottles. I thought if I stand still I'm a target. So I never stopped moving. I reckoned if I stood still I'd be dead."
