Highway to Hell - The Life and Death of Bon Scott
When Bon Scott died in London in 1980, AC/DC were on the brink of becoming the world's biggest rock band. As the lightning bolt of lyrical inspiration behind their songs and front-man for their high voltage live performances, Bon was already a legend. In death, he became the ultimate Australian rock icon. Highway to Hell tells Bon Scott's story in appropriately two-fisted prose drawn from deep research and scores of interviews. It charts the long way to the top for a larrikin lad from Fremantle who rose out of the rubble of a primitive pop scene to become the voice of a generation. Since it was first published to worldwide acclaim in 1994, Highway to Hell has endured as the definitive book on Bon Scott and AC/DC - a classic of rock 'n' roll writing.
