You're looking at a date in time considered to be the earliest known footage of AC/DC playing a live show... At least, it's the earliest footage of the AC/DC we all know and love...

Welcome to St, Albans High School Hall in the appropriately named town of St. Albans, Australia. The date was March 3rd, 1976. AC/DC had been around for a few years, but Bon Scott was a recent addition to the lineup... and quite frankly, a necessary one. You see, the first itaration of AC/DC was somewhat of a glammy, soft rock ballad type band. It wasn't the all out 'balls in your face' misfit band of legends we know them as today.

For instance...

All in all, it just proves that the biggest bands in the world all had humble beginnings. And even though the egos might grow pretty large throughout their success, if they're cranking out the hits long enough, even the biggest stars mellow out into cool human beings. Take AC/DC, they were obnoxious in the 80's, but by the time they went through a period of being lame and came out the other side with another hit (Thunderstruck), they turned into just a couple of cool dudes again.

It's a pattern we see with rock stars. They're cool in the beginning, a-holes by the third successful album, and generally back to being chill when the world of music chews them up a little. It's happened to so many over the years. Corey Taylor, Dave Grohl, James Hetfield, etc... They weren't always nice guys, but they seem like the type of dudes you share a beer with in the driveway after mowing the grass.
