Dave Evans recently dropped into Undercover.fm to tell his story about the origins of AC/DC. He says the band formed in 1973 after he answered an ad in the Sydney Morning Herald for a heavy rock singer that Malcolm Young had placed. A week later, Malcolm’s brother Angus auditioned and joined the band.

Interestingly, and contrary to widely-accepted stories as to the origin of the band’s name, Dave suggests the name ‘AC/DC’ came from Sandra Young, the wife of George Young. “It was easy to remember, was short and sweet and it means power,” Dave said.
