BON SCOTT

Bon Scott was already a house-name in Australia since the later 1960's- having several top 10 hits with the bubble-gum 60's pop rock band THE VALENTINES. Before this, Bon drummed and also sang in the band THE SPEKTORS during early 1965. THE VALENTINES were formed sometime in the later part of 1966 and released several singles(many hits) until 1970, when they disbanded. Bon went on to perform in his "serious music" band FRATERNITY from 1970 until 1973- performing psychadelic style progressive Rock, finally breaking out of Australia and touring England in 1973-opening for BRIAN JOHNSON fronted GEORDIE at the time!

The European Fraternity tour was a failure, and the band returned to Australia broke, and disbanded. Bon went on to record 2 songs with a band known as THE MOUNT LOFTY RANGERS in late 1973, before finally auditioning for AC/DC and getting the job.

Bon had also guested on Australian Band BLACKFEATHER's album "At The Mountains of Madness" on recorder and backround vocals, and had recorded a live version of AC/DC's RIDE ON with French Band TRUST on Feb. 14, 1980-only 5 days before his death.
