Continuing our celebration of three decades since 1986 marked a pivotal moment for thrash, the co-founder, singer and guitarist of one of the "Big Four" gives Mark Eglinton a rundown of his most formative records


AC/DC – Let There Be Rock
This was a life changing record for me because, up to that point, I was lost. Really disenfranchised. I really hadn't found anybody else who was singing my song, so to speak. But Bon [Scott] really embodied everything that I thought a frontman should be. And between Malcolm and Angus [Young] I knew of no guitar duo at that time that touched them.
