AC/DC Guitarist's Schoolboy Costume To Be Displayed At Melbourne Museum

Australia's The Age reports that one of AC/DC guitarist Angus Young's schoolboy stage costumes will be displayed on a mannequin sized for a 10-year-old as part of an exhibition opening at the Melbourne Museum on March 20.

The school uniform, once worn tight on Young's 158-centimetre-tall frame, is one of 1200 objects making up the museum's most expansive exhibition to date, The Melbourne Story.

AC/DC's guitarist Young formed the band with brother Malcolm in Sydney but the hard rockers' formative years were spent in St Kilda in the mid-1970s. One of Melbourne's lanes was renamed ACDC Lane in their honor in 2004.
