(Classic Rock) Angus and Malcolm Young considered firing Bon Scott from AC/DC after he took a heroin overdose in 1975, the band's former bassist Mark Evans has said.

The Young brothers, who founded the Australian outfit, are well-known for operating a zero-tolerance policy to hard drugs. And Evans suggests the only reason they didn't dismiss the frontman who died in 1980 was that his behaviour was a one-off incident.

The claim appears in a new book, The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC, by Jesse Fink, and it's regarded as the first time it's been revealed how Scott's iconic status was misunderstood by his bandmates during his lifetime. more on this story
