Jeff Apter (in conversation with Claire Halliday)

Pop star, mentor and icon, George Young was one of the most important figures in Australian pop music history. In fact, George Young wasn't so much on the charts for the best part of three decades: he and his musical partner Harry Vanda were the charts. In Friday on My Mind, legendary music biographer, Jeff Apter, reveals the little-known facts, stories, setbacks and triumphs about a man who helped Australian rock music shake off its humble beginnings and become an international powerhouse. Jeff explores George's long and fruitful association with Harry; his association with Ted Albert that helped create a music empire; and how George—the older brother and mentor of Malcolm and Angus Young—helped AC/DC find the sound that made them superstars.
