INTERVIEW WITH ROSS "THE BOSS" YOUNG

Photo by Scott Segrue

AC/DC Abruzzo had the opportunity and the pleasure to interview Ross Young, Malcolm’s son, a good friend of ours. Here’s the complete interview, exclusive for our blog.


-Today we have a very special guest with us. Ross Young aka as “Ross the Boss”. Hi Ross, how are you doing? It’s a pleasure to see you again. And thank you for accepting our interview

You’re my friends Abruzzo! It’s always a pleasure for me to help you out with your great blog!

-Thank you Ross! During this tour we shared some good moments together: from Ireland in Summer 2009 to Australia in 2010. And now again in Europe.

Yes, I’ve been traveling with my dad and the band for more than a year. After Europe we went back to North America and then South America. Then Australia, the US again and now back to Europe. I guess it’s more than 100 shows for me….

-WOW! Which was your favourite country and why? Any funny story while being on the road?

My favorite place is Argentina. The people there are so warm and kind. And the girls so good-looking! I really had a good time there. I loved it! But of course I like North America, with Canada and the States. And Italy too. Gorgeous girls over there...

-Let’s talk about you relationship with your father. How is it to be the son of Malcolm Young’s, the founder and the leader of AC/DC, the greatest rock’n’roll band in the world?

It’s a very normal relationship. Just normal hanging out. We do simple things like watching a movie or talking about my girlfriends… He gives me good advice. Dad is dad. He doesn’t come out a lot to pubs like I do…. But from the stories he told me, when he was younger he really enjoyed partying with friends and girls…

-WOW. What about these stories from the early days? Has he ever told you anything about partying with Bon Scott for example?

Of course, he always tells me about Bon. He was a great guy, with lots of tattoes and always having fun and always surrounded by women. He even told me the whole story about Rosie and when Bon met her… She was really a fat woman! But Bon didn’t care too much… He loved all women… Ahahaha

-Ahahah! And what about the other members of the band?

My dad always says that Brian and Angus get a lot of attention but Phil and Cliff should get more credit for what they’ve been doing. Brian is really a great guy, and also a funny guy. He makes lots of jokes. We always have a good time together. Cliff is great too. He always goes to pubs with Brian and has a few drinks. Phil doesn’t talk much. He’s very quiet. But he’s a good guy. He loves fast cars. I think he has a Ferrari… He also told me some stories about him and Bon having a good time together…. Angus is a good guy. He loves smoking cigarettes and drinking tea.

- Yes. We remember he was very happy when we gave him some special tea from Japan in Madrid last year.... But how was growing up in the Young family with so many rockstars?

This might sound unrealistic but it was totally normal. Of course sometimes you get to meet famous people or attend some important events with the band and the other family mambers. But the family is the family.

-What about the other rockstars that you’ve met?

My favorite is Steven Tyler. Really a nice guy. Also Slash. He’s very cool. And the drummer from the Rolling Stones. What’s his name? Yeah, Charlie Watts…

-Ross, we know about your passion for karaoke and we know that your favourite song to sing is TNT, especially this verse: “Women to the left of me and women to the right”. Can you tell us why?

My father always tells me I have to be a player with girls. And being on tour is just perfect because I always get to meet new people and women… Only in Argentina I met 6 girls... And I love when girls compete for me… AHAHAAHH

We in AC/DC Abruzzo we believe that there’s a lot to learn from your rockstar attitude when it comes to women. But we also know that now you have a steady girlfriend. Right?

Right. Her name is Alisa and she’s from California. Actually, she’s half Italian. She’s stunning. I’ll see her soon in Europe at one of the next shows.

Thank you Ross!! See you soon on the road.

It was a pleasure. See you soon! And please say hello to K.K. and the Kosp. I love reading about those guys and their pick-up techniques... AHAHAHAHAHAHA

  8. The French are just envious for the last world cup... Zidane was really pathetic.

  9. The Italians have stolen the World Cup, and Materazzi deserved a big kick in the balls(if it has).

    But the thing that's really pathetic is a guy who is annoying everyone with a flag for a whole concert without worrying about the people behind him.

    For the latest French concert we were nice but next week it will not pass.
    It's a simple advice.
