Band is Australian, but only Rudd is native Australian[edit]

I want a section that mentions that the only mainstaying band member in AC/DC that is actually from Australia is Phil Rudd. Bon, Brian, the Youngs and Cliff were all born in the UK. 108.81.33.59 (talk) 06:09, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

A curious reference is what appears on http://music.uk.msn.com/features/the-best-scottish-singers-and-bands#image=7 about "The best Scottish singers and bands". The AC/DC page says: "AC/DC's Wikipedia page might tell you they're from Australia, but Angus and Malcolm Young were born in Scotland, and the band's original singer Bon Scott (RIP) came from Forfar - they had neeps and tatties in their blood.". Well the Wikipedia page does say Angus and Malcolm Young were "Scottish-born Australian guitarist"s and that Bon Scott was a Scottish-born Australian rock musician... So clearly we are acknowledging, contrary to what the article says, their Scottish origins and birthplace. But the way its written in the MSN Music page article, is as if we totally ignore this.. Just anything I guess to get back at Wikipedia werldwayd (talk) 00:24, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
This request needs some perspective. Place of birth is relatively meaningless when you consider where they have lived and now reside. Bon Scott was born in Scotland before immigrating to Australia with his parents and siblings when he was 6 years old. Scott was living in England at the time of his passing. Both Brian Johnson and Cliff Williams were born in England and now live in Florida, USA. Angus and Malcolm Young were born in Scotland before immigrating to Australia with their parents and a sister when they were 8 and 10 years old respectfully. Angus Young now lives in both Gelderland, Netherlands, and New South Wales, Australia. Malcolm Young now lives in England. Phil Rudd was born in Australia and now lives on North Island, New Zealand. What makes even residencies a redundant guide is the fact that AC/DC was formed in Australia where their early creations were successful enough to give them the start toward their global success.
