Aussie music fans won’t want to miss Australian Story next week.
Monday’s episode features the family of AC/DC legend Bon Scott, who not just reflect on his explosive career but his state of mind.
The program will unravel Bon’s story after being granted exclusive access to his family and friends who provide fresh insights into his vulnerabilities leading up to his untimely death aged just 33 in London in 1980.
The program features the first interview with Bon’s younger brother Derek and is introduced by Brian Johnson, Bon’s successor with the band.
Bruce Howe, a former bandmate who shared a house with Bon for five years, noticed a big change when he last saw him in late 1979.
“He wasn’t bubbly and laughing. Maybe he’d come to the state where he’d achieved his dream, he found his holy grail, but found that his holy grail might have looked like an empty goblet,” he told the program.
To this day, Bon Scott is considered one of the world’s best rock singers.
“I don’t think there’s a singer in the world that can hold their own against him,” Jimmy Barnes says.
Australian Story ‘On The Brink – Bon Scott’ airs on Monday, May 9 at 8pm on ABC
