Summary
In 1971 Adelaide girl Irene Thornton meets Bon Scott, the singer for local band Fraternity. He is a larrikin showman with a smile that rules the world. Between Bon and Irene, there is a unique spark; they marry in 1972. For the next few years, with Irene by his side, Bon Scott continues a driven but difficult journey towards AC/DC and rock 'n' roll fame. Irene gives us the scene without the airbrushing: the bitter winters in London with Fraternity, the drinking and drugs, the group living and frayed tempers, and the broken dreams and inner demons. But she also shares details of her incredible bond with this extraordinary man, watching Bon create and perform the music that put him and AC/DC on the world stage. This is a moving account of an artist at the height of his powers, and an intimate view of the lows that ended tragically in Bon's early death. It is a tale of loss, but also a reminder of Bon Scott's dazzling talent, unmatched energy and fearless determination to live his dreams - rare gifts he gave the world of rock
