Background

Scottish-Australian musician, songwriter and record producer George Young. With The Easybeats he had the 1966 UK No.6 & 1967 US No. 16 single ‘Friday On My Mind’. After the band broke up in 1969, Young and fellow member Harry Vanda embarked on a songwriting career that saw the pair produce dozens of hits. They became two of Australia’s best-known songwriters, with Young’s work including ‘Love Is In The Air’ and ‘Yesterday’s Hero’ both hits for John Paul Young. Vanda and Young were also the producers of early work by AC/DC, formed by his younger brothers Malcolm and Angus Young. George Young died on 22 October 2017 at the age of 70, three weeks before his brother Malcolm Young (of AC/DC) died.
