Late AC/DC Frontman Bon Scott Subject Of New Book

(Classic Rock) A book on late AC/DC frontman Bon Scott written by three of his close friends will be released next month. Live Wire has been penned by Scott's roadie John D'Arcy, John's wife Gabby and the vocalist's 'soulmate' Mary Renshaw. It's released on October 14 via Allen & Unwin.

The publishers describe the book as a "deeply personal and revealing portrait" of Scott and add: "We learn what it was like to be his friend, live and tour with him, and be part of the close-knit world from which one of biggest bands of all time emerged."

They continue: "With Bon there was always sex, drugs and rock'n'roll, but Live Wire also demonstrates the humour, intelligence and warmth of the man. From his early days with The Valentines, living in rundown apartments in inner Melbourne, to the legendary early years of AC/DC, this is the story of Bon, told by three of the people who knew him best."
