Bon Scott Documentary

Yes, please!

In a world exclusive, Australian Story unravels the legend of AC/DC front man Bon Scott, who was on the verge of becoming an international rock star when he died at age 33.

For the first time ever, the program has been granted access to Bon’s family and friends who provide fresh insights into his vulnerabilities and state of mind leading up to his untimely death in London in 1980.

The program features the first interview with Bon’s younger brother Derek and is introduced by Brian Johnson, Bon’s successor with the band.

Bruce Howe, a former bandmate who shared a house with Bon for five years, noticed a big change when he last saw him in late 1979.

“He wasn’t bubbly and laughing. Maybe he’d come to the state where he’d achieved his dream, he found his holy grail, but found that his holy grail might have looked like an empty goblet,” he told the program.

To this day, Bon Scott is considered one of the world’s best rock and roll singers.

  1. You might think that my Amyl and the Sniffers fandom makes me an authority on all things Outback rock, but you would be wrong.

    For instance, I didn’t realize that AC/DC had more than one singer. I thought it was only the jaunty cap guy. Also, somehow I never heard them called “Acca Dacca.”

    Thank you for this informative and cautionary tale about being a rock star.
