George Young's career in music took off as a rhythm guitarist in The Easybeats, who in the 1960s emerged from Sydney to find worldwide success as Australia's answer to The Beatles. He and fellow band alum Harry Vanda became two of Australia's best-known pop songwriters, before attracting still wider notice for their production work with AC/DC.
