Singer, Musician. Born Ronald Belford Scott, he began his musical career as a bagpipe player with his father's highland band. He sang for the bands "The Valentines" and "Fraternity" before joining the heavy metal band "AC/DC" in 1974, replacing singer Dave Evans. Along with guitarist brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, the band recorded their debut album "High Voltage." In 1975, on their next recorded album "T.N.T." Bon Scott played the bagpipes on the song "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock and Roll)." Through the rest of the 1970s Ac/DC recorded a number of highly successful releases, including "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" in 1976, "Let There Be Rock" in 1977, "Powerage" in 1978, a live release "If You Want Blood" and finally "Highway to Hell" in 1979. Bon Scott was known for his unique powerful voice and heavy drinking lifestyle, which lead to his death of acute alcohol poisoning in February 1980. His remains were cremated and his ashes was thrown to the wind; his family erected a memorial plaque to him in Freemantle Cemetery. (bio by: Izzebella)
