AC/DC exhibition rocks museum

An exhibition which gives an insight into the history of Australian rock band AC/DC has opened for the first time outside the group's home country.

AC/DC: Scotland's Family Jewels, which has been approved by the band, opened at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow.

It will run until February next year and gives enthusiasts a chance to view about 450 items, including a leather jacket owned by the late singer Bon Scott, who was born in Kirriemuir, Angus, as well as hand-written lyrics to the hit Highway to Hell and more than two hours of songs and interviews.

AC/DC are said to have a "deep history" with Glasgow, as the band's founding brothers Angus and Malcolm Young were born in the city.

Part of the exhibition focuses on their time in Scotland before the family emigrated to Australia. It includes the families' emigration papers, early photographs and a "live and loud" projection of the band playing the Apollo in Glasgow in 1978, when AC/DC with Bon Scott were at the height of their success.

Other highlights include a prototype version of Angus Young's signature schoolboy outfit and one of his custom-made guitars.

Kelvingrove is the only scheduled European location on the exhibition's world tour, which has been presented previously by the Arts Centre, Melbourne, and the Western Australian Museum in Perth. The Melbourne Arts Centre has worked with Kelvingrove in the past to help bring the Kylie Exhibition to Scotland.
