Picture: PHIL BLATCH PP208903 Do you remember the Young brothers at school? Tell us at www.innerwestweekly.com.au The real Angus Young. IT'S the real-life school of rock. Ashfield Boys High School students have been rocking out with a vengeance this week to celebrate the incredible comeback of their superstar old boys -- AC/DC guitarists Malcolm and Angus Young. Not only is the band's first album in eight years, Black Ice, top of the ARIA charts, but it has put the band at number one in the British charts for the first time in 28 years and it is predicted to be number one in the US this week. Though school records from that time no longer exist, the Young brothers grew up in Burwood in the late '60s and early '70s and attended Ashfield Boys. Legend has it that Angus thought school was the ''highway to hell'', but he was inspired by one thing at his old alma mater -- his school uniform, which he adopted as his stage costume. Starstruck ''Acca Dacca'' fans have even been known to make a pilgrimage to the school, accord- ing to principal Daisy Kokkalis. Dressed in his modern-day school uniform and his dad's 1977 blazer, Year 8 student Ben Janiszewski bears more than a passing resemblance to the legend- ary rocker. ''I've been a fan all my life,'' said the keen guitarist, who's the proud owner of an Angus Young autograph. ''I haven't heard the new album yet, but I'll buy it as soon as I get the money.'' Year 11 student Chris Perkett, 16, is proud of his school's claim to fame. ''I've only heard Rock'n'Roll Train from the new album, but it's good,'' he said. Both boys are keen students of the school's music department, which is thriving, according to teacher Helene Galettis. Any future rockstars? ''Who knows?'' she said.
