Obituary: George Young

George Young, a pioneer of Australian music as a member of The Easybeats and producer for AC/DC, the band fronted by his brothers Angus and Malcolm, has died aged 70.

Young created a new sound for the Australian music industry, the production company Alberts, where he spent many years producing hits for other acts, said in a statement on its website.

Young co-wrote Friday On My Mind, an enduring hit that charted around the world, with Harry Vanda, who became his long-time song-writing partner.

The pair were inducted in the ARIA Hall of Fame in 1988, and have a highly regarded song-writing award named for them.

Love Is In The Air, the disco number Young and Vanda penned for John Paul Young, was another chart success, reaching number seven in the US — via George Young, member of The Easybeats and pioneering Australian songwriter, dies – ABC News
