Rock Iconz Bon Scott – “Riff Raff” in Peace. On this day, 1980 rock music lost one of the most powerful front men of all time. Bon Scott of AC/DC would have been 74.
BON SCOTT, the charismatic frontman of the legendary hard rock band AC/DC®, was born Ronald Belford Scott in Kirriemuir, Scotland on July 9, 1946. The Scott family moved to Australia when Bon was 6 years old. He showed interest in music in those early days, performing in his Dad’s pipe band. After quitting high school, he formed a local group called The Spektors in 1964 where he played drums and did occasional vocal work. This was the first hint at what was to come. In 1974, Bon joined AC/DC as lead singer and thus began a rise to hard rock superstardom. Bon’s combination of bluesy vocal riffs and gritty song writing was amazing. His power on the live stage was even more lethal. AC/DC would morph from domestic rock heroes in Australia, to global fame. The band’s fan base, ever loyal, grew with each album release right through Bon’s last recording, “Highway to Hell.” This was a breakthrough for AC/DC reaching number 17 on the Billboard charts in the USA and multi-platinum sales. Sadly, we lost Bon Scott shortly after on February 19th, 1980. However, he will never be forgotten and remains one of rock music’s greatest Rock Iconz®. Let There Be Rock !
