BURIAL:  Fremantle Cemetery, Fremantle, Australia

AC/DC's lead singer Bon Scott possessed the filthiest, most-guttural, blues/rock voice that ever growled from a human throat.  That voice was a perfect complement to the kinetic bursts of raw energy that emanated from Angus Young's lead guitar.  To see some of their early performances is to witness pure, primordial  Rock and Roll.  As with Blues, Heavy Metal is at its best with simple chords and riffs that are elevated by passionate, unbridled performance.  When Bon Scott left this world with the Rock and Roll cliché of "aspirated on his own vomit" he was replaced by the quite astounding Brian Johnson who took AC/DC to the heights of popularity with their comeback album "Back and Black" being the third biggest seller in Rock history.  But, man oh man, there will never be another BON. - Todd
