Sample text

Scott did not have the looks of Evans but what he lacked in ‘pretty boy’ status he made up in pure charisma and brash confidence, a trait which dissuaded people from disagreeing with him to his face. Angus commented on meeting Bon: “When Bon first came along and saw me and Malcolm he sat behind the drums and started bashing away. We said ‘we know a good rock n’ roll drummer, what we want is a great rock n’ roll singer’, hence the song we recorded. This is what we wanted. For us it was great. He was a striking person.

They thought he was cute and cheeky enough to be attractive, not to mention energetic. Angus was the star of the band’s live performances, but this was equally an achievement that should be ascribed to Bon Scott. Angus stole the limelight, but Bon was sensible (and devoid of ego) enough to allow him the spotlight whenever he desired. Bon was the unselfish lead singer, who did his job and only needed to get his point across; he was able to leave aside claims for personal stardom or front man demands.

According to some, even the band itself, he was more of a stereotypical rock star. This would not have worked for AC/DC for very long. The group’s appeal was that they looked pretty much like everyone who was in the crowd, the only real difference was that they were on stage and could play rock n’ roll rather well. The audience could identify with its icons, which some would argue is not what people want from escapist type music. AC/DC begged to differ, without worrying too much. The showman aspect of its performance were the antics of Angus, which amounted to little more than duck walking across the stage and playing as if he were ‘possessed’.
