Cranhill was a tough, working-class suburb with high unemployment.

In 1940 William joined the Royal Air Force serving in World War II as a flight engine mechanic. After the war William worked as a yard man for a builder and then as a postman.

“Can I Sit Next To You Girl”, the band’s first single, was later re-recorded with Bon Scott autographs as their vocalist. Also, they decided upon the name AC/DC, suggested by their sister Margaret, who saw the letters “AC/DC” on the back of her sewing machine.
