Speaking in a recent interview with Let There Be Talk, Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds revealed the story of his first met with AC/DC guitarist Angus Young. Here’s the story:
“Angus Young was my original first favorite guitar player. And then I met him and I told him that he was my favorite guitar player. And he told me to stop pissing in his pocket. So I told him, ‘Fuck off’ or something. ‘Whatever, fuck you.'”
“We were at the Golden God Awards and one of my liaisons was like… I was supposed to take Angus Young to the bathroom. ‘I know you’re a huge fan, take him to the bathroom.’
So I take him, like grab his arm and take him to the bathroom. I was waiting for him and I as like, ‘Hey man, I just want to thank you for your work.’
And he just looks at me like I’ve got shit on my face or something. ‘I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you.’ And he said, ‘What are you talking about?’ I’m like, ‘I started playing guitar because of you.’
And he’s like, ‘Quit pissing in my pocket.’ I was like, ‘Fuck you,’ basically. I say, ‘Your pocket is way too far down there to piss in.”
