Description


"The most extensively researched book on AC/DC ever... it's outstanding... this story gets more incredible by the chapter. If you thought you knew Bon Scott, think again. This is as close as anyone is ever gonna get to the complete truth behind the legend, warts and all." - B.J. Lisko, Canton Repository, Ohio

"VERY eye opening... Bon was a much more complex character than I thought. It challenges a lot of the assumptions about how he died and also paints a great portrait of who he was as a person. One of the best things about this bio is it renders Scott a 3D figure; it brings him to life and shows what a massive loss his passing was for rock." - Greg Renoff, author of Van Halen Rising

The death of Bon Scott is the Da Vinci Code of rock.
The legend of the man known around the world simply as "Bon" grows with each passing year; in death, AC/DC's trailblazing frontman has become a rock icon. But how much of it is myth?
At the heart of Bon: The Last Highway is a special -- and unlikely -- friendship between an Australian rock star and an alcoholic Texan troublemaker. Jesse Fink, author of the critically acclaimed international bestseller The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC, reveals its importance in Bon's story for the first time.
Leaving no stone unturned in a journey that begins in Austin, 1977, and ends in London, 1980, Fink takes the reader back to the end of the '70s, a legendary era for music that saw the relentless AC/DC machine achieve its commercial breakthrough but also threaten to come apart.
With unprecedented access to Bon's lovers, newly unearthed documents, and a trove of never-before-seen photos, Fink divulges startling new information about Bon's last hours to solve the mystery of how he died.
Music fans around the world have been waiting for the original, forensic, unflinching, and masterful biography Bon Scott so richly deserves -- and now, finally, it's here.
