(1946 – 1980)
Lead singer for AC DC on some of their classic hits, He replaced Dave Evans as the lead singer of AC DC in 1974. In 2004, he was voted by Classic Rock as the number one frontman of all time in front of Freddie Mercury and Robert Plant. Hit Parader in 2006 had him fifth on their list of the 100 greatest heavy metal vocalists of all time. High Voltage, T.N.T., and Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, what else can I say. Some of the greatest Rock ever, for me anyway. Bon Scott may have been one of the wildest frontmen ever, too. Read about his life if you get a chance. A lot of people don’t even remember him, but I’ll bet they remember the songs……….
He is buried in Fremantle, Western Australia, and his is reportedly the most visited grave in Australia. The National Trust of Australia decreed his grave important enough to be included on the list of classified heritage places.
