GayC/DC are on the hunt for their new “Malcolm Young” – formidable rhythm chops essential, ability to pun welcome

GayC/DC are looking for a new member and they know exactly what they want. You need to live in Los Angeles. You need to be male. You need to be gay. You need to be “capable and flamboyant”. And here comes the tough part: you need a metronomic right hand and you need to be able to play guitar like Malcolm Young. 

It’s a big ask – Young was only the greatest rhythm guitarist of all time – but the long-running AC/DC tribute band are hopeful that an open invitation will help them recruit a new full-time player following the death of their rhythm guitarist, Clint Yeager, who died on August 15, aged 53. And they have officially put out the call for video auditions, with prospective guitarists welcomed to film themselves playing an AC/DC classic or two of their choice.
