Scottish-Australian musician, a rhythm guitarist, backing vocalist and songwriter with the hard rock group "AC/DC." Except for a brief absence in 1988, he was with the band from its November 1973 beginning until retiring in 2014 for health reasons. Young and the other members of AC/DC were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. His younger brother Angus is also a guitarist with the group.

AC/DC debuted in 1973 at Chequers Club in Sydney, Australia; recorded a group record in July of that year and the original members disbanded shortly after that. After a relocation to Melbourne by the Young brothers, the band recruited new members from the group's roadies and a contract was signed with Albert Productions in 1974. In 1976 they signed with Atlantic Records and relocated to the UK.

The group began numerous European and U.S. tours, highlighted by the death of band member Bon Scott by alcohol poisoning on 20 February 1980, numerous chart hits, millions of dollars in income from concerts and records, the alienation and acceptance of band members, the death of band member David Gregory on 11 November 1990 and the death of three teenage fans during a concert "crush" at a performance in Salt Lake City, Utah, on 18 January 1991.

He was married to Linda Young and had two children, Cara and Ross. Young took a leave of absence from AC/DC in April 2014, to receive treatment for dementia. In September 2014, the band's management announced that he would be retiring permanently. He died on 18 November 2017, aged 64, in Sydney. Young's elder brother George Young died a few weeks earlier, on 22 October 2017.
