Angus Young, AC/DC lead guitarist, songwriter, and co-founder, married Ellen van Lochem from Aalten, Netherlands in 1980 shortly before Bon Scott‘s death. Ellen’s family runs the local blacksmith business in Aalten.

Although Young prefers to keep his private life out of the media, it is known that he now lives in Sydney, Australia and also has a home in Aalten, Netherlands. Because he has a home in the Netherlands, he is also on the Quote 500, the list of Holland’s 500 richest people.

Angus and Ellen are building a new three-story home in Aalten. The home includes a recording studio, his and hers bathrooms and a swag of guest rooms. The new home is controversial in Aalten since it is much larger than the existing homes there.

Young is rarely seen in Aalten, which is in the Dutch countryside near the German border and is considered one of Holland’s music hubs. The couple are immediately recognizable when they do get out – Angus is 5’2″ and Ellen is 5’8″.

    Enjoyed everything you have shared in this site. I was very curious of Angus personal life though none of my business. I respect his family and their privacy. Just want to say that I am impressed with his musical talent [looking forward to Nashville Show] and glad that he has such style also off of the stage as well. My step daughter and I look forward to the show! From a humble southern belle to you on the other side of world, my utmost thanks

    Saw the boys in San Antonio and again in Dallas in December and January. Third and forth time I have seen them and they still are the best live band out there. No one compares.

    That lady in the photo with Angus, while being blonde and pretty, isn’t his wife Ellen. Looks more like a fan photo.

    I think Mr Young makes good music, but the problem with the house he and Ellen have build in the village of my youth is not that it it significantly bigger than its neighbours: the problem is that it is it’s just plain FUGLY!!!!
