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″.
