The One and Only Bon Scott: 30 Years Gone Today

Bon, We Miss You.  30 years Gone today. 

Here's a few reminders of your one of a kind rock greatness........

Ride on, my friend.


  1. I cried at some of these, and linked to you today.

  2. There's nothing quite like those first few AC/DC albums before Bon died. Johnson has done an admirable job filling Bon's shoes but I still prefer Bon-era AC/DC over Johnson-era AC/DC.

    Incidentally, one of my favorite singers is fellow Scot-born Aussie, Jimmy Barnes. Barnes actually briefly replaced Bon Scott in Fraternity when Bon left that band to join AC/DC. He has a similar gritty style but he tends to sing with a bit more soul and a little less grit. Back in the 70s he was known to drink 2 bottles of Vodka a day, the 2nd DURING his live shows with his then band, Cold Chisel. If you dig Bon Scott, I recommend checking out Barnes' band Cold Chisel.

    Thanks for sharing those clips btw! They're all pretty fokkin' cool!

  3. AC/DC lost the twinkle in its eye when Bon died.
