The death of Bon Scott is the Da Vinci Code of rock. As the legend of the man known around the world simply as `Bon' has grown with each passing year since his untimely death, AC/DC's trailblazing frontman has become a rock icon. But how much of it is true and how much is myth? At the heart of Bon: The Last Highway: The Untold Story of Bon Scott and AC/DC's BackIn Black is a special - and unlikely - friendship between a Scottish-born Australian rock star and an alcoholic Texan rebel.
Jesse Fink, author of the critically acclaimed international bestseller The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC, reveals its importance in Bon's story for the first time. Leaving no stone unturned in a journey that begins in Austin in 1977 and ends in London in 1980, Fink takes the reader back to the end of the '70s, a legendary era for music that saw the relentless AC/DC machine achieve its commercial breakthrough but also threaten to come apart. With unprecedented access to Bon's lovers, newly unearthed documents, and a trove of neverbefore-seen photos, Fink divulges startling new information about Bon's incredible life and his final hours to solve the mystery of how he died.
Music fans around the world have been waiting for the original, forensic, unflinching, masterful biography Bon Scott so richly deserves - and now, finally, it's here.
