AC/DC week won’t stop, but Bon Scott’s contributions will. Highway to Hell was released in 1979, and it would be the last album to feature the legendary front man. Ten days after the video below was created, Bon Scott died from choking on vomit. Whether it was his vomit or not, no one knows, because you can’t dust for vomit. Anyway, its an appropriate ironic send off for the man who sang hard and drank hard. I don’t know much about Bon’s personal life, but I’d like to imagine he’s in rock and roll heaven with 72 groupies…hah! Oh, religion…Bon’s death was a turning point for the band obviously, and who they would replace him with, and the type of songs they’d create are all stories for tomorrow. So stay tuned!
