Bon Scott (1946-1980)- 30 Years Later

Bon Scott
July 9, 1946-February 19, 1980

Note: I know I'm two days late. I totally forgot the date so better to get this done now.
Friday marked 30 years since AC/DC singer, Bon Scott, passed away. Without a dobut, Scott was one of the greatest rock n roll frontmen of all time. His voice was unique and made those early AC/DC albums what they were. Bon was a bad boy on the stage as he roamed the stage shirtless, showing off his tattoos. Musically he and Malcolm and Angus penned some of the greatest AC/DC songs. Not only are they good AC/DC songs but they are some of the best in rock. Bon died on February 19, 1980 after a long night of drinking. His AC/DC bandmates threatened to break-up but with the approval of Bon's family, the band went on with singer Brian Johnson. Their album, Back in Black, is the second best selling album of all time. Today, Johnson is still with the band. Still, fans remember the greatness of Bon Scott.
Rest in peace, Bon.
