A Film was done during a concert in Paris in 1979, called the legendary 'Let There Be Rock Video', wich is today the best documentation about the concerts AC/DC gave, with fucking great exposures of Bon and the guys ! Some may ask now, why had it to come this way...? Well, in fact there isn't any clear answer, but for shure Bon was more and more very stressed coz of the gigs they gave, at last 220-250 per year, and that's compared to the days per year, really much... too much !
So Bon was going to find pleasure in boozing, and that should cost him a lot of his energy, that much that he wouldn't have enough of it, at the end. The boys said once in an interview, that Bon is a bit special... At a question he was asked then, what the boys ment by that 'special?' Bon said he was SPECIAL DRUNKEN, I DRINK TOO MUCH, and he smiled. All his wishes he was singing about became true, "...Waiting round to be a Millionair", "It's a long way to the Top...", "Walk all over You", and as he said "Hell, ain't a bad place to be!" Is it superstition to ask, why he sung "I'm on a Highway to Hell", and that the name of his last record 'Highway to Hell' has got 13 letters, why one song is called "Touch Too Much" and that on the cover of the record he was wearing a Juif-Star at his chain ? Well, bizzare, bizzare, I guess. Once he said, "WE ARE BETTER THAN ALICE COOPER", and Angus added with his austarlian slang, "Yeah, AC/DC... It's like an EARTHQUAKE, eh !!!" 'Like an Earthquake', I think that's the right definition for them, coz none can resist their music wich is taking you apart you wouldn't have even dreamed about. Sometimes I ask myself why such things has to come that way, the biggest arseholes around become 99 years old and people you really admire not even reach the 40 ! My biggest sin would have been, to stay quite, and never have published this... but I'm not that sort... and I proved it.
BON SCOTT FOREVER
