Stevie Young

Stevie Young

Stevie Young is the nephew of AC/DC guitarists Angus and Malcolm Young. He is the son of their brother Alex. During the 1988 U.S. tour for AC/DC's album "Blow Up Your Video", which started on May 3 1988, Stevie filled in for Malcolm on rhythm guitar, while Malcolm left to deal with a growing alcohol dependency. Many fans were not even aware that Malcolm had been replaced, as Stevie bears a physical resemblance to him.Fact|date=July 2007

After his first bands, 'The Stabbers', 'Prowler' and 'Tantrum' formed in the Scottish Borders town of Hawick in the late 70's, Young made two albums in the 1980s with his rock band Starfighters, formed in 1980. Starfighters were chosen as support for AC/DC's Back in Black tour in 1981.

Starfighters split in 1983 before coming back together in 1987 for another shot. When that didn't work out (not helped by the stint in AC/DC), Stevie Young formed 'Little Big Horn' whose demo tape was produced by Malcolm Young. They soon broke up after a lack of success in signing a record deal, although not before they had recorded a session for Tommy Vance's Friday Rock Show on BBC Radio 1.Stevie later formed 'Up rising' who also split up.Starfighters are mentioned in the book 'Get your jumbo jet out of my airport (Random notes for AC/DC Obsessives)' and also feature in the 2007 rare record guide.
