I've been listening to the Easybeats again after reading Jeff Apter's biography of George Young, and also Malcolm Young. However a few little tid-bits of information I thought were worthy of sharing:

- Harry Vanda gave Malcolm Young his Gretsch Jet Firebird, as he thought it was a shame such a good guitarist didn't have a decent guitar to play. George can be seen with this same guitar slung behind his back whilst playing piano in a video of the Easybeats playing "Good Times" on Beat-Club, a German T.V music show. This same guitar would become Malcolm's main guitar "The Beast".

- Malcolm Young played lead guitar on Stevie Wright's Evie (Part 1). Malcolm is mainly known as a rhythm guitarist, but in the early days of AC/DC he played lead alongside Angus. By AC/DC's second album, Malcolm had become a rhythm guitarist full time, as playing lead got in the way of his drinking. Angus has always been a teetotaler.

- George played bass guitar on AC/DC's first three albums, and also live on occasions until Mark Evans joined the band.
