Bon Scott
What's a punk band? Hey, who's got a beer?
Scott quotes
He made a lot of friends everywhere and was always in contact with them too. Weeks before Christmas he would have piles of cards and he always wrote to anyone that he knew, keeping them informed. Even his enemies I think.
Scott
I can't even say the word, it's too early in the day to get upset.




Scott Bon quotes
My new schoolmates threatened to kick the shit out of me when they heard my Scottish accent. I had one week to learn to speak like them if I wanted to remain intact. Course, I didn't take any notice. No-one railroads me, and it made me all the more determined to speak my own way. That's how I got my name, you know. The Bonny Scot, see?
Scott Bon
Malcolm? He's the brain [of the band].
Bon Scott quotes
No matter how long you play rock and roll, songs might change just as long as the balls are there, the rock balls. And that's what's important to us
Bon Scott
We've got so many ideas for songs and good riffs, and the more we work, the more we tour, we're getting more ideas, just more. It's just gonna get better and better. I can't see an end to it. It's like infinity rock and roll.
Scott Bon quotes
I'm 33...before AC/DC I've played in a lot of bands in Australia. You're never too old to rock and roll.
Scott
Atlantic reckoned we should use a top Yank producer and appointed one Eddie Kramer to the post. It turns out the guy was full of bullshit and couldn't produce a healthy fart.
Scott Bon
It's nothing to do with us at all, our success is due to the taste of the public.
Bon Scott
I don't give a fuck what else on the rider, as long I've got Jack Daniels.




Bon Scott quotes
Often he would trail off with fans who came backstage after a show and go off with them to a party or something. He judged people as they were and if they invited him and he was in the right mood to go, he went. We used to call him 'Bon the Likeable'.
Bon Scott
I've never had a message for someone in my entire life. Except maybe to give out my room number.
Scott quotes
We could be somewhere where you would never expect anyone to know him and someone would walk up and say "Bon Scott!" and always have a bottle of beer for him.
Scott Bon
It keeps you fit - the alcohol, nasty women, sweat on stage, bad food - it's all very good for you.
Scott Bon quotes
Angus? I think he's kinda crazy. Since the first night I saw the band way back in Australia, I knew their manager, and I'd never seen the band before and never even heard of AC/DC. And the manager just said stand here, the band comes on in two minutes. So I stood there and this band comes on and there's this little guy, about that big, with a school uniform and a bag on his back going crazy and I laughed, and I must have laughed for half an hour. And I still laugh, and I think he's great.
