I have met this fellow, but I’ve left it at that. And he was a very highly intelligent lyricist and poet. You really can’t compare him to anybody; he was unique. There was a problem.

These events occurred in 2002 and 2003, when he was 14 to 15, and prior to the beginning of the show. I knew that Pete [Way] had AC/DC’s numbers; Joe didn’t have the numbers of anyone else in the band.  He attempted to join the Australian Army, but was rejected and deemed "socially maladjusted". The messages have been written in obvious haste: ‘To Bon, from Björn in Sweden’; ‘AC-Foxi-DC’; ‘Ronald and Frank from Germany – cheers’; ‘To Bon, Szmery from Poland.’. And though he had a very wide-ranging and energetic social life, he never let the band down in any way. During this visit, the musicians did a jam session of "Ride On".

It was something so special – people with their own minds, [who had made] their own decisions about music, and had their own principles. The issue of whether Scott's lyrics were used, uncredited, on the album remains an enduring topic of debate. But I can never recall seeing him put anything in his mouth or up his nose; pills or smoking, nothing like that. After a long time waiting, I can remember Joe saying: ‘I have to get back home’. Sarah Midkiff. Kinnear’s claimed 7.45pm discovery of Bon Scott’s corpse – on Tuesday, February 19, remember – contrasts sharply with Chapman’s recollection of learning about the singer’s death in the morning of that day. “We got close a few times and lost him...He’s a pretty good escape artist.  In 1970, after gaining a place on the National Top 30 with their single "Juliette", the Valentines disbanded due to artistic differences after a much-publicised drug scandal. Overhill Road must have changed substantially since 1980, the year of Bon’s death. He had strung a rope up into the rafters, got on top of the PA and started swinging from it Tarzan style in front of the PA. The late writer Mark Putterford, who raised the issue of heroin being involved in Scott’s death, was reputedly aware of Kinnear’s new guise. I believe the reason Bon went to East Dulwich was he was going to get some smack.

The down under-based group’s UK schedule was a 19-dater that kicked off on June 11, ’76 at Glasgow City Hall, and climaxed at London’s Lyceum Ballroom (nowadays better known for housing the stage production of Disney’s The Lion King) on July 7. And I really didn’t want to [give the number to Chapman], because it’s quite early in the morning when I got the phone call.”. I don’t know if it [the smack] was for us, or for us and him as well.

I think maybe the people that Bon went [to East Dulwich] with, whoever they were, maybe they might’ve had a phone number of where Bon was staying with Joe [in Victoria]. The sun comes up, and I say: ‘I have to go to bed’. That’s been good news for Baltimore. The coroner concluded that the vocalist had died due to acute alcoholic poisoning. Classic Rock met up with Way at Waysted singer Fin Muir’s flat in Milton Keynes.  The Valentines recorded several songs written by George Young of The Easybeats. Live from the Atlantic Studios was recorded on 7 December 1977 at the Atlantic Studios in New York City. But the one thing you can always say about Bon is that he never once let anybody down.
