In a major new biography of the Australian rock icon, Bon: The Last Highway, journalist Jesse Fink offers an exhaustive, fascinating study of Bon Scott – the man and the myth. He’s also undertaken a fresh investigation into the murky circumstances surrounding Scott’s death in London at age 33, unearthing new information.

But there’s much more to Scott’s story than living fast and dying young. In conversation with Jacinta Parsons, Fink discusses the remarkable story of this blazing figure in Australian rock history.
