AC/DC - The Early Years & Bon Scott
 
By Neil Daniels
 
Published by Independent Music Press
 
Released Feb 22
 
Often regarded as the greatest frontman in thehistory of rock music, Bon Scott tragically died on February 19, 1980 but his memory lives through the music he created with AC/DC. From 1975 s Australianalbum High Voltage to 1980’s Highway To Hell, Bon Scott and AC/DC were a global force to be reckoned with. AC/DC formed in 1973 but it wasn’t until the latter half of 1974 that Scottish born singer Robert Belford Scott joined the fold. Scott would help take AC/DC to legendary heights of success. Although the bands success did not arrive quickly, they released a stream of stunning albums and were undoubtedly the most electrifying live rock band of the 1970s. 
 
Despite the latterday success of the band, the Bon Scott years of 1974 to 1980 are often regarded by many as the band s most fertile creative period. Those years spawned 1976’s Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, 1977’s Let There Be Rock and 1978’s Powerage, not forgetting the now legendary live album, If You Want Blood You’ve Got It from 1978. Exploring thetwo Australian albums, the five international studio albums as well as other releases featuring Bon Scott, this book AC/DC - The Early Years With Bon Scott is a fitting recognition of Bon Scott s legacy and a reminder of just how influential AC/DC s 1970s period remains. Charts the most creative period of the band s history from 1973 to Bon Scott’s death in 1980. 
 
Includes a foreword from Uriah Heep’s Mick Box. Bonus chapter on Back In Black: the first album with Brian Johnson. Extensively covers AC/DC s five international albums and two Australia-only releases with Bon Scott. Perfect as a fans book as well as a book for AC/DC beginners. Bon Scott was voted the greatest frontman of all time by Classic Rock magazine. The most successful Aussie band of all time. A movie about Bon Scott s life is currently in production.
