Original AC/DC Singer Dropped From Bon Scott Tribute

(Gibson) Original AC/DC singer Dave Evans has been dropped from the upcoming Long Live Bon Scott tribute show, which debuts May 25 in Melbourne, Australia. As reported by Undercover.fm, representatives of the Bon Scott Foundation objected to the inclusion of Evans, despite the singer's assertion that he and Scott were always on good terms. "To me, it's an insult," Evans told Undercover News. "Bon would be rolling in his grave."

Evans was a founding member of AC/DC, along with Malcolm Young, Angus Young, Colin Burgess and Larry Van Kriedt, when the band formed in 1973. Scott replaced Evans in October 1974, but Evans claims to have had no hard feelings. "I never had a problem with Bon," he said. "He had an opportunity to take my place and become the singer for AC/DC. I would have done the same thing."

Scheduled participants in the tribute include Rose Tattoo's Angry Anderson, Screaming Jets' Dave Gleeson, Swanee's John Swan and The Choirboys' Mark Gable. more on this story
