Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book I loved Bon Scott is the greatest. He really lived a full life, and in this book you hear all the vibrancy of that life. see what lead to him becoming a part of ac/dc and how he really made that band into something I don't think it would of been if he hadn't of joined it and steered it in the right direction. he really doesn't get enough credit for how he became the real rebellion of ac/dc. angus young just put on a costume and pretended. bon lived it. hearing how they were considering kicking bon scott out of the band.
