Mastodon’s Brent Hinds Recalls The Time AC/DC’s Angus Young Told Him To “Quit Pissing In My Pocket”

Things probably could have gone much better for Mastodon vocalist/guitarist Brent Hinds when he met once of his heroes, AC/DC guitarist Angus Young. Appearing recently on Dean Delray‘s ‘Let There Be Talk‘, Hinds had the following to say of his brief time spent with Young at a past metal awards show:

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 was 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.”

For the non-Australian readers out there, Young‘s reply is thought to emerge from an old saying of ‘don’t piss in my pocket and tell me it’s raining.’ That is to say, Young appeared to think the flattering comments were insincere or deceptive.
