Bon Scott: Highway to Hell

When

Event Status

According to rock mythology, Bon Scott was more cyclone than man. Legend has the former AC/DC frontman as a womaniser, brawler and drinker; a force of nature whose raspy scream and outrageous stage presence packed arenas across the world during the band’s stratospheric 1970s rise.

In a major new biography of the Australian rock icon, Bon: The Last Highway, journalist Jesse Fink offers an exhaustive, fascinating study of both the man and the myth.
