Why does Angus Young of ACDC fame dress in a schoolboy’s uniform?

The now aging rock star Angus Young of ACDC fame is known for his energetic performances, schoolboy-uniform stage outfits, and his own version of Chuck Berry’s duck walk. But what IS the reason for the schoolboy uniform?

Well, as an aspiring young rockstar, this talented lead guitarist once played in his actual school uniform, as suggested by his sister, to small crowds.

This penchant for alternative dress clearly stayed with him, and later, Angus experimented with a wide variety of costumes such as Spiderman or Zorro as well as a gorilla. He has also been known to perform a striptease of sorts during shows, peeling of his uniform bit by bit, to reveal underwear emblazoned with the local flag.
