Remembering singer Bon Scott of AC/DC who we lost on this day (Feb 19, 1980).
AC/DC was formed out of Sydney, Australia in 1973 by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young. Bon Scott was lead vocalist and lyricist for the band from 1974 until his death in 1980. The band’s classic album Highway to Hell was released in July of 1979 on Atlantic Records and it would be the last album to feature singer Bon Scott who died the following year on Feb. 19 1980 after choking on his own vomit. He was 33. The album became the first AC/DC album to break the U.S. Top 100, eventually reaching No. 17 on the charts, and propelling the band into super stardom. AC/DC have sold over 200 million albums worldwide in their 40 plus year career and are one of the best-selling bands in the of all time. Crank up some old school AC/DC today in honor of Bon Scott!
