Forty years old this July, and AC/DC’s Back In Black remains the greatest rock album of all time. I’m happy to fight you if you say otherwise. Whatever your opinion on the album, I hope you agree this is a pretty damn good LEGO sculpture of the band’s iconic guitarist Angus Young, captured here in his trademark school uniform by Pedro Vezini. The cap, the skewed tie, the shorts, the socks, the duck-walk stance — all spot-on. But my favorite touch is the face, perfectly capturing Angus’ over-the-top on-stage grimaces. If you’re not hearing hefty riffs in your head right now, then there’s something wrong with you. I prescribe an hour of AC/DC listening as a little pick-me-up.
Yesterday brought the sad news of the death of Malcolm Young — a founder member of rock band AC/DC. The news prompted me to build a little tribute model. AC/DC provided the soundtrack to my youth, and I was lucky enough to see them a couple of times.
Don’t need reason, don’t need rhyme,
Ain’t nothing I would rather do,
Going down, party time,
My friends are gonna be there too…
