Bon Scott Late For First Big AC/DC Gig

(Classic Rock) Former AC/DC bassist Mark Evans says one of his lasting memories of Bon Scott is his late arrival for one of their breakthrough concerts.

Evans was with the Aussie giants through their pub-rock era and appeared on their first four albums. And he says it was impossible to stay angry with the Scottish singer, who died in 1980 and was replaced by Brian Johnson.

"I distinctly recall the first time we were headlining in London, at the Hammersmith Odeon. That is a great venue, a great indicator that you're on your way. It's a serious gig," Evans tells Bass Musician. "We were getting ready to go on and Bon wasn't there. Earlier in the day he had decided to take the subway to the gig. Bon being Bon, he had a few drinks beforehand so he was feeling a bit relaxed. Needless to say he got on the right train going the wrong way.
