RIP Malcolm Young

Illustration for article titled RIP Malcolm Young

The first time I really displayed interest in music was at about four years old, and it was AC/DC’s “For those about to rock”. I think it was the cannons that got me, they were unique and interesting to my little mind and ears.

Way back when McDonalds used to have playgrounds in front of the restaurant, I remember stopping to grab a bite to eat on a short lunch at work. There was a couple kids playing in the ball pit, one of them screaming the chorus to the following song at the top of his lungs. 20 years later, I can’t hear this song without thinking of that and literally laughing out loud (the song is great in it’s own right, and that memory just seals the deal).

Last but not least, here’s a fun version of a blues standard recorded 43(!) years ago (god they looked young, and god I’m getting old).
