Rock god Angus Young of AC/DC has been chosen as the greatest guitar player in Australian music history by Australian Guitar magazine.

Though his schoolboy outfit may be getting some age on it, his licks seem as fresh as ever. According to the Daily Telegraph, the list features Tommy Emmanuel at No. 2, followed by Cold Chisel’s Ian Moss, The Living End’s Chris Cheney, and Rick Brewster from The Angels rounding out the Top 5. Angus’ brother and fellow AC/DC guitarist, Malcolm Young, finished just outside the Top 10.

While Angus’ place in rock history is firmly cemented, it may actually be a while before he gets to add to his legacy. Malcolm Young recently revealed that he felt that it might be “a year or two” before the band returns with a new record. Malcolm stated that he’s been jamming some song ideas, as have other members of the band, but the group is enjoying the long rest between albums.

Singer Brian Johnson also stated earlier this year that health issues were affecting one of his bandmates and that plans for a new record had briefly stalled as a result.
