AC/DC still count Bon Scott as member
AC/DC still talk about Bon Scott like he is a member of the band.
The 'Highway to Hell' rockers still regard their former lead singer - who tragically died in 1980 after a night of drinking in London - as one of them, and Bon's replacement, vocalist Brian Johnson, feels his death was just "unlucky".
He said: "He wasn't a wild, wild, wild man - he was just as wild as the other boys were. He was just unlucky. We've all done stupid, dumb things where we're young, but we got away with it. He didn't.
"It was just one of them stupid things that shouldn't have happened, and it was accidental and it was stupid.
"I just won't have a bad word said against him. We still talk about him like he's a member of the band in the dressing room."
The Australian rock group - who also includes brothers Angus and Malcolm Young, Cliff Williams and Phil Rudd - are to release a new version of their 1979 concert film 'Let There Be Rock', made in Paris shortly before Bon's death, and Brian said it gives a "wonderful insight" into the singer.
He added to the USA Today newspaper: "If you want to understand the band, then you'll understand this when you see Bon Scott with the boys when they were young and just starting out, and thinking you never know what the future holds. You can tell these guys just wanted to rock 'n' roll.
"They showed me this movie and I saw it and it's a wonderful insight into Bon Scott."Posted on 31 May 2011 10:00 to category : Music News
