Bon Scott is an Australian rock musician and songwriter of Scottish descent who became famous as a vocalist and frontman of the Australian rock band AC / DC. He takes the first place in the list of 100 greatest frontmen of all time according to the British Classic Rock magazine.
Ronald Belford Scott was born on July 9, 1946 in Forfar, Scotland. In 1952, his family emigrated from the UK to Australia. Until 1956, the family lived in Melbourne, then moved to Fremantle, where Bon learned to play drums and bagpipes as part of a local orchestra. Bon left school at the age of 15 because of constant conflicts. For various violations (including giving false names and addresses to the police, escaping from surveillance, illegal intercourse and stealing 50 liters of fuel), Scott was taken to the Fremantle Prison’s firing point and also spent nine months in a juvenile care facility. For some time Scott served in the Australian armed forces, but was sacked because of poor social integration.
