# DXXXIII…My Late Brother’s Favorite Guitarist…

Today, the 31st of March, is the birthday of legendary rock god Angus Young (1955), the Hall-of-Fame guitarist from the band AC/DC (in case you’ve been living under a rock), who co-created the band in 1975 and is best known for his gimmick, which is playing shows dressed as an English schoolboy, complete with uniform and knickers.

His mastery of the guitar is unmatched by very few and his awesome riffs and grinds are known throughout heavy metal history. His career’s longevity is just a testament as to how great the guy plays his guitar…and the band is a Number One favorite of my late eldest brother, Fred. The band has released over 15 albums and are, unfortunately, in the twilight of their touring days.

To you, Mr. Young, I hope many happy more birthdays are to come…

Celebrating with the guitarist are; actor William Daniels {“Knight Rider” as K.I.T.T. and “St. Elsewhere”} (1927), late singer Lefty Frizzell (1928-1975), hockey legend Gordie Howe (1928), fashion designer Liz Claiborne (1929-2007), actor Richard Chamberlain and “Partridge Family” matriarch Shirley Jones (1934), trumpeter Herb Alpert (1935) and actor Christopher Walken was born in 1943.

Former Vice President Al Gore (1948), actress Rhea Perlman (1948), “Superman” veteran Marc McClure {former Jimmy Olsen} (1957), sportscaster Steve Smith (1969), hockey star Pavel Bure (1971) and actor Ewan McGregor was also born on this date in 1971.

As I leave you all to see you next month (my busiest), I would like to thank you all for reading…the view counter is what truly makes me happiest!!!
