In honor of Angus Young’s 66th birthday today, we’d like to take a minute and recognize his greatness. Check out the top 10 guitar solos by Angus below, or watch him perform “Jailbreak” at Donnington Park in 1991 here.

A few things you may not know about Angus:

  • He doesn’t drink alcohol. He prefers chocolate milk or coffee.
  • Angus’ amp caught fire in the studio while recording “Let There Be Rock.”
  • He’s a big fan of jazz music, and specifically Louis Armstrong.
  • He dropped out of school at the age of 15 and became a typesetter.
  • He never thought he’d be in a band with his brother, Malcolm.
  • He thinks guitar solos are way easier than playing along with other people.
  • He prefers a french fries and butter sandwich over a regular hamburger.

Happy birthday Angus!
