Angus Young Net Worth: Angus Young is a Scottish-born Australian guitarist who has a net worth of $140 million. Angus Young was born March 31, 1955 in Glasgow, Scotland. He is best known as a cofounder of the Australian hard rock band AC/DC. Young is known for his highly energetic performances, schoolboy-uniform stage clothing and (re)popularization of Chuck Berry's 'duck walk'. Rolling Stone magazine ranked Angus Young as the 24th greatest guitarist of all time. In 2003, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with AC/DC band mates. AC/DC remains together since their formation in 1974 and have released 15 studio albums. The band has sold over 200 million albums worldwide, with 70 million certified units in the U.S. Their 1980 studio album, Back in Black, is accountable for 50 million of those worldwide sales and is rated as the third all-time highest-selling album worldwide. As teens, Angus and his brother Malcolm became enamored with bluesman Muddy Waters as well as Chuck Berry and British rockers The Rolling Stones and The Who. Early in the '70s the brothers founded AC/DC, taking the name from their sister's sewing machine. After many long sessions rehearsing, they added singer Bon Scott and AC/DC was born—and soon became a worldwide sensation, beginning in their home country of Australia. On August 24, 2006, Young received Kerrang! magazine's Legend Award from the editor, Paul Brannigan, calling AC/DC "one of the most important and influential rock bands in history." On May 16, 2012, Young was named Best Australian Guitarist of All Time by a poll conducted by Australian Guitar Magazine. Young and his brother Malcolm are huge supporters of the Scottish football team Rangers F.C.
