AC/DC Bon Scott Story To Be Stage Play

(Gibson) The short life of AC/DC frontman Bon Scott has been turned into a play. Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be The Story of Bon Scott will make its stage premiere in July in Australia. The play will open July 12 at the Anthenaeum Theatre in Melbourne, according to NME.com.

Scott was in many bands before he joined AC/DC in 1974. He sang the band's early hits including "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap," "T.N.T." and "Highway to Hell" before dying at age 33 in 1980. After a night on the town in London, Scott choked on his own vomit.

Actor Nick Barker will play the singer, and has said that Scott is an Australian icon akin to Ned Kelly. Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be was written by Andrew Barker, who has previously worked on plays based on the lives on Johnny Cash and John Denver. more on this story
